LPT2 Sdn Bhd says contractor hired to replace a damaged sign did so without consulting them and installed a sign that read 'Tandas Muslimin'.

lpt2-tandasmusliminPETALING JAYA: The public can rest easy because the male toilets at the Bukit Besi R&R are open to people of all faiths and not just a select few as the sign read earlier.

East Coast Expressway concessionaire LPT2 Sdn Bhd (LPT2) today apologised to the public for any confusion that arose after a photograph went viral of a sign installed at the rest and relax area that mistakenly read “Tandas Muslimin” to indicate that the toilet was reserved for Muslim males only.

In a statement to FMT, LPT2 explained that the now infamous sign was used to replace a damaged one.

However, the contractor hired to fix the sign, they said, did not consult them before putting up the “Tandas Muslimin” marker.

“We are extremely sorry for any confusion caused by the sign and we will be more vigilant to ensure such incidents are not repeated.”

LPT2 also thanked those who brought the matter up to their attention.

The picture of the earlier sign drew the ire of many netizens who condemned it.

The sign has since been removed.
