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.
