PAS has urged city authorities to act against a night club ahead of its opening next week featuring "hot guys in female underwear", describing the event as not only insensitive ahead of the coming Ramadan month but also "immoral and disgusting".

In a statement, PAS secretary-general Takiyuddin Hassan also questioned Privacy Tun Razak, the night club in Jalan Tun Razak, over the use of the late prime minister's name.

"Such an act is most insensitive and irresponsible, and amounts to insulting the good name of the country's leader," he said, adding that the authorities should not lightly approve names chosen by individuals and businesses.

According to a Facebook post by the night club, it has 250 slots for its grand opening on March 30.

"Don't have to go to Thailand this time because they're coming to Malaysia... Surrounded by a bunch of handsome guys in super sexy pyjamas," said one of the posts in Chinese.

Takiyuddin said the event was not only against local culture and the official status of Islam, but also insensitive to the month of Ramadan which begins tomorrow.

He said the event promotes a "hedonistic, obscene and promiscuous culture", and does not espouse the aspiration of the nation to bring about a society of morals and noble character that contributes to the common well-being. 

"Individual or economic freedom can never be an excuse for negative acts and tendencies like this," he added.
