KK Mart founder has audience with king, seeks forgiveness over socks debacle

KUALA LUMPUR, April 3 — His Majesty Sultan Ibrahim, King of Malaysia, today granted an audience to the founder and executive chairman of the KK Supermart & Superstore Sdn Bhd Group, Datuk Seri Dr Chai Kee Kan, at Istana Negara.

According to a post on Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar’s Facebook page, in the 15-minute audience, Chai sought forgiveness from His Majesty and all Muslims regarding the issue of the sale of socks bearing the name of Allah at its outlet.

Sultan Ibrahim wanted all parties including KK Mart to be more careful about the products sold, especially imported goods, to prevent such incidents from recurring.

“All parties must be more responsible. I hope this is the last time I have to stress on this,” said Sultan Ibrahim to the Royal Press Office. 

“Once again, I stress that no party should take advantage of this matter, including inciting others. I don’t want this issue to drag on,” said His Majesty.
