Back KK Mart, Sarawak govt told

Parti Bumi Kenyalang president Voon Lee Shan said the possibility of sabotage by business rivals or religious extremists against KK Mart should not be ruled out.

PETALING JAYA: A Sarawak-based party has called on the state government to back KK Mart, which is mired in controversy following the sale of socks bearing the word “Allah”.

In a statement, Parti Bumi Kenyalang president Voon Lee Shan said since the convenience store – which has 881 outlets nationwide – was founded by Sarawakian KK Chai, the state government must intervene to ensure the controversy would not ruin the brand.
