Celcom got raided by Jakim (Updated)

Well, not really got “raided” but Jakim “instructed” Celcom to stop its 100days 100cars contest.

This is what the CEO of Celcom said when Celcom announced the first winner of the contest that walked away with a Toyota Camry 2.0E 1AZ-FE.

“This is the biggest ever promotion Celcom has introduced thus far, and this is something that only the unbeatable can do. The main reason we have launched a campaign of this magnitude is to reward our loyal customers for their continuous support and to thank them for staying true to Celcom,” – Dato’ Sri Shazalli, CEO, Celcom

And this is was the reply:

“This contest is against Islamic rules. The contest contained elements of gambling”– Perlis Mufti Dr Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin.

Since late yesterday, the 100days100cars website was showing this notice:


Final decisions to be announced soon. More here.
