Rosmah’s hair is more important than the people?

SHAH ALAM, 25 Feb: The Lembah Pantai Member of Parliament questioned the swift action by the central government in addressing the complaint of home hairdressing prices by the Prime Minister’s wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor.

Nurul Izzah Anwar said that at the same time, the central government has yet to act on calls to eliminate the goods and services tax (GST) on books and medicine.


The PKR Vice-President was referring to the statement by the Deputy Finance Minister who pledged to look into Rosmah’s complaints regarding the potential that the hair styling services, that costs RM1,200, will soar with the implementation of the GST.

“Datuk Ahmad Maslan’s attitude of prioritising complaints from a minister’s wife shows how much the BN government does not put the people’s interests as paramount,” she said in a statement taken from Malaysia Kini.

Meanwhile, Wanita PKR also advised Rosmah to be more sensitive to the society’s cost of living burdens and to not compare it with her luxurious lifestyle as the Prime Minister’s wife.


Its leader, Zuraida Kamarudin, said that Rosmah should not bring up the RM1,200 cost of hair styling when the minimum wage at this moment is only RM900.
“Can the RM900 minimum wage of Malaysians be compared to RM1,200, the symbolism of Rosmah’s large hair?

“Islam teaches us to be moderate in all aspects of life and to avoid being arrogant in showing wealth. Islam also teaches us to dress with humility.

“Let us Malaysians pray so that Rosmah changes her extravagant lifestyle. May Allah give her guidance,” she said in a statement by Malaysia Kini.

Zuraida said that Rosmah’s lifestyle, which she considers as “too extravagant”, does not reflect positive values to Malaysians who now have to shoulder the increase in prices of goods.
