Disqualified finalists may yet compete in Miss Malaysia World pageant

PETALING JAYA: The four Muslim finalists dropped from the Miss Malaysia World 2013 pageant may be allowed to compete following a review by the Federal Territories Islamic Religious Department (Jawi).

Jawi director Datuk Che Mat Ali confirmed an official meeting with Datuk Anna Lim, the organiser of the pageant, yesterday to discuss the possibility of the Muslim girls being allowed to compete.

“I have not made a decision yet, but I will be announcing the decision sometime next week,” Che Mat said.

Lim said: “The girls may be recalled to participate in Miss Malaysia World 2013.”

However, she said they would have to wait for Che Mat’s announcement before any decision could be made.

“The meeting was fruitful and announcement may be made by early next week,” she added.

Lim said this year’s Miss World finals would take place in neighbouring Indonesia.

Muslim contestants in Indonesia are allowed to compete in the pageant but will be wearing sarong instead of bikinis. –Sumber
