The night club at the centre of controversy over an event meant to feature "Thai hot guys" in women's underwear has apologised for any inconvenience caused, adding that it will cancel the programme out of respect for racial and religious sensitivities. 

Privacy Tun Razak said in a statement that public posts on "illegality and immoral activity" had been made in relation to its grand opening.

"Privacy Tun Razak respects the religious sensitivities of this country and will not violate the laws that have been set," it said. 

"We once again apologise for any inconvenience caused, and on the grounds of respecting racial and religious sensitivities, the programme has been cancelled." 

The bar, located in the capital city, made headlines after PAS voiced protest against the holding of the event which it described as "insensitive", "immoral" and "disgusting". 

It also questioned the club's use of the late prime minister's name, calling it an insult.

The Prime Minister's Office later said that preliminary investigations by the Kuala Lumpur City Hall had found that the premises were licensed as a restaurant to a company called Beijing 9 Sdn Bhd.

It added that the company's restaurant licence had expired on Feb 4, 2021.

"The premises do not have an entertainment licence, and there has been no application for one, or for the carrying out of entertainment activities."
