» NO SEGREGATION
Jimmy Chng Yeoh Beng: I’ve worked for over 15 years in a totally Malay environment and I’ve never been treated as anything less than one of their own.
Che Kontan Osman: In Islam, there is nothing wrong with Muslims using utensils that are used by non-Muslims, except when cooking food. There is no need to segregate cups, glasses, plates, forks and spoons. The only thing that needs consideration are utensils to cook food such as when non-Muslims cook pork. But if the eatery or restaurant is fully HALAL, there is no need for segregation. Don’t make it difficult for Islam and Muslims.
Swarupha Susela: Well said, Mufti Perak. Since I was small, I grew up almost entirely with Muslims and when I read yesterday about this segregation of drinking cups, I was shaken up. I said to myself, what’s happening? Islam never taught about segregation.
