By: Mohammad Omar Farooq IslamiCity* –

She soon applied for PR status, which was approved in the same year on July 17. So an Indonesian a cook and a cleaner could get PR in about SIX months……For us, although even Myanmar Muslims are treated differently. Actually ALL Foreigner Muslims SHOULD be treated equally in a Muslim country. One of my friend Masters & PhD from Malaysian Government University and stayed in Malaysia for 15 yrs went to Malaysian Immigration to just get the PR APPLICATION forms only. Malaysian Immigration even REFUSED TO give the application form claiming that 15 yr WORKING (with salary), Studying and doing research with the student pass made him not entitle or not eligible for PR. Even those married to Malaysians were allowed to apply after 5 yrs’ visa.
