KUALA LUMPUR – The Muslims in the country will not be able to move forward and survive is they boycott products produced by non-Muslims.

The member of the Board of Trustee of Malaysia Islamic Economic Development Foundation (YapEIM), Dr. Rosli Yaakop said that the Muslim and non-Muslim entrepreneurs need to depend on each other when they produce a product.

Therefore, he said, it is not right to boycott non-Muslim products.

“Some of the products produced by the non-Muslims are not produced by the Muslims. For instance, cars, mobile phones, therefore, boycotting is not the right terminology for us to encourage the grown of Muslim entrepreneurs.

“We cannot survive if we boycott non-Muslim products,” he told the journalists during the Ready to Eat Food Contribution event at Batu Muda campus of PICOMS International University College (PICOMS) today.

Acknowledging that prioritising the Muslim products is a good measure for Muslins as it will help to develop the Muslim economics, he said, however, it should not be seen as an effort to boycott other products, especially when it is being used as a capital to instil racial issues.

“We cannot look at the national economy only to fulfil the needs of the Malays. It will not bring us anywhere as the economy has an input and output system. We can manufacture certain things while some may require the expertise of others. That is the system of economic.

“Supporting and prioritising Muslim products is a big concept in prospering the economy, but not racial biased. Prioritising should be ok. We should support the Muslim entrepreneurs first,” Rosli added. -MalaysiaGazette
