The National Consumer Advisory Council (NCAC) has proposed introducing rules and regulations on sales and promotions during Raya to reduce overspending.

The council’s chairman Mohd Azmi Abdul Hamid said Muslims are being led astray with the various colourful promotional material that uses elements of religion to push their product.

He said this at a press conference at the Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry in Putrajaya during a breaking of fast event on Wednesday.
