Controversy over sport betting divides UMNO

On the particular issue of sport betting, UMNO Youth evidently differs from Dr. Mahathir, Dr. Rais Yatim as well as Nazri Aziz . Other UMNO elements which are also opposed to sport betting includes the party' s state committees in Johore and Perak. No licence has been issued yet for Mr. Tan to run his 'world-class' business which would showcase our nation as a 'modern', 'inclusive' and 'tolerant' Muslim-majority society.
