The Youth wing of the Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party (PAS) has urged Malaysia Airlines Bhd (MAB) to stop serving alcohol completely, following a bomb scare on flight MH128.

Malaysia Airlines’ flight MH128, which was bound for Kuala Lumpur from Melbourne, made an emergency landing on Wednesday (31st May 2017) night when a 25-year-old Sri Lankan national tried to enter the cockpit while claiming to have a bomb.

The passenger was overpowered by the plane’s crew and later arrested at Melbourne’s airport.

PAS released an official statement claiming that alcohol is a threat against flight safety, stressing that the Malaysian government should emulate the actions of Middle Eastern countries such as Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Egypt, and Bahrain. “Even a small country like Brunei has banned alcohol on Royal Brunei Airlines’ flights,” the wing’s vice-chief Ahmad Fadhli Shaari said.

This is not the first time that PAS has called for a ban on alcohol on Malaysia Airlines’ flights. In fact, Malaysia Airlines has stopped serving alcohol on flights under 3 hours since last year to accommodate the majority of their passengers. According to Ahmad Fadhli Shaari, it was a move that was “praised by many”.

“As a country that is headed by a Muslim prime minister, now would be a good time to make changes if we really change,” Ahmad Fadhli Shaari added.
