Dark skinned officials were chosen because their cover will be more convincing since many restaurant staff are migrants workers. Wakiman added:

“They sound convincing when they speak in Indonesian and Pakistani lingo, so that customers will believe they are really hired to cook and serve meals and take menu orders.”

If Muslims are seen ordering food during the daytime, the officers will secretly take pictures of them and contact the local religious affairs department for further action, Wakiman said.
