Top 5 At 5: KK Mart Boycotted Over Controversial Socks

Today's top 5 stories are:

1. Our mini Popek Popek Parlimen, where we bring you updates from the Dewan Rakyat. Today's main topics: The Kawasan Rukun Tetangga initiatives as well as plans to revert to the pre-covid school calendar.

2. A ruling by the Federal Court of medical negligence, which have raised concerns of practitioners resorting to "defensive medicine".

3. Education Minister Fadhlina Sidek's warning that teachers and school staff will be sacked if they are found guilty of sexual harassment. This is in line with her ministry's rolling out of the Safe Schools Programme, which will see guidelines to prevent sexual harassment cases in schools.

4. The Malaysian Bar's motion to challenge former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak's reduced sentence.

5. KK Mart faces a boycott, following their sale of socks bearing the word Allah went viral online.

For these stories, we heard from Manvir Victor, Chairman of the Patient for Patients Safety Malaysia, child psychologist, Katyana Azman, and lawyer Lim Wei Jiet.
