FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Unjust Dismissal and Ethical Malpractices Exposed in Prestigious Marketing Agency

July 11, 2023

In an event that has shone a light on the dark cor­ners of work­place dis­crim­i­na­tion and uneth­i­cal prac­tices, a promi­nent Malaysian mar­ket­ing agency, 2X Mar­ket­ing, is being called into ques­tion over the unjust dis­missal of an employ­ee based on per­son­al reli­gious activ­i­ties.

The employ­ee, known by his online per­sona as “The Mus­lim Apol­o­gist,” hosts a pop­u­lar YouTube chan­nel cen­tred around dis­cus­sions on Islam­ic prin­ci­ples and val­ues. His con­tent, bound by YouTube’s Com­mu­ni­ty Guide­lines that explic­it­ly stand against racism and reli­gious big­otry, has gar­nered con­sid­er­able atten­tion, most­ly pos­i­tive, since its estab­lish­ment in 2020.

Despite his YouTube activ­i­ties pre­dat­ing his employ­ment with 2X Mar­ket­ing, the agency seem­ing­ly dis­re­gard­ed the auton­o­my between his pro­fes­sion­al and per­son­al life. He alleges that the agency unjust­ly dis­missed him, mak­ing unfound­ed accu­sa­tions under the guise of fail­ing a “back­ground check.”

“It is my fun­da­men­tal right to express my reli­gious beliefs out­side of the work­place,” says The Mus­lim Apol­o­gist.“When I rep­re­sent myself as The Mus­lim Apol­o­gist, I do so not as a Malaysian bound­ed by the agen­cy’s skewed inter­pre­ta­tion of ‘val­ues,’ but as a Mus­lim. The attempts by the agency to mis­con­strue my iden­ti­ty, as well as their efforts to act as the judge, jury, and exe­cu­tion­er, have only reflect­ed their own biased and dis­crim­i­na­to­ry prac­tices.”

The sit­u­a­tion esca­lat­ed when 2X Mar­ket­ing pre­sent­ed a delet­ed self-addressed test email as evi­dence dur­ing the Indus­tri­al Rela­tions Depart­ment medi­a­tion process. A move The Mus­lim Apol­o­gist refers to as “humor­ous,” reflect­ing the agen­cy’s des­per­ate attempt to val­i­date their wrong­ful deci­sion.

In a tri­umphant vic­to­ry for The Mus­lim Apol­o­gist and a poignant les­son on the sanc­ti­ty of work­ers’ rights, the medi­a­tion result­ed in 2X Mar­ket­ing being ordered to pay MYR 8500 as ex gra­tia pay­ment for vio­lat­ing the employ­ment con­tract unlaw­ful­ly.

The Mus­lim Apol­o­gist stat­ed, “It is I who has the last laugh. Their base­less alle­ga­tions, biased assump­tions, and unjust prac­tices have been brought to light. If they believe they can uphold their false pre­tences, I chal­lenge them to take me to civ­il court. Any ratio­nal judge would rec­og­nize the erro­neous­ness of their deci­sion.”

Despite the ordeal, The Mus­lim Apol­o­gist remains stead­fast, vow­ing to con­tin­ue using his plat­form to speak against the agen­cy’s uneth­i­cal prac­tices. His courage serves as a bea­con of hope for oth­er poten­tial vic­tims of work­place dis­crim­i­na­tion and eth­i­cal mis­con­duct.

“I will con­tin­ue to expose their fraud­u­lent way of doing busi­ness and ensure nobody else becomes a vic­tim of their unjust prac­tices,” he affirms.

In a world that is increas­ing­ly con­scious of work­place rights and ethics, this case serves as a stark reminder that unjust ter­mi­na­tions and prej­u­diced prac­tices have no place with­in a fair and just soci­ety. It is the hope of The Mus­lim Apol­o­gist, and indeed all who val­ue human rights, that such inci­dents serve to rein­force the neces­si­ty for busi­ness­es to uphold ethics and integri­ty in their oper­a­tions.
