KOTA BHARU – The Charmers, the organiser of the “snake girl” show at the Kelantan Museum, has apologised for failing to abide by the conditions stipulated by the state government.
Its representative Mohd Amir Hasan, 26, gave his assurance that all conditions would be followed, including ensuring the “snake girl” covered herself according to Islamic religious requirements (menutup aurat).
“We want to apologise to the state government and also the Kelantan Museum on this matter,” he told reporters, here, today.
Yesterday, state Local Government, Housing, Health and Environment Committee chairman, Datuk Abdul Fattah Mahmood said the state government would not hesitate to close down the show if she failed to cover herself adequately.
He said all shows held must abide by the regulations stipulated by the state government.
The one-month Snake Exhibition and Show at the Kelantan Museum from Monday features Rahiza Abdul Rahim, 28, or “Baby Andryanna” in a glass cubicle with 60 snakes.
Meanwhile, Rahiza said she was still enthusiastic about holding the show despite being criticised for not covering up according to the Islamic dress code.
“I am still keen about the show and I will abide by the condition set by theÂ state government,” she added.- BERNAMA
