Singaporeans have flamed a netizen after they suggested that non-Muslims should not buy meat from the Halal section at supermarkets.

The netizen had shared online about how they encountered a Chinese woman shopping for meat at the Halal section of a supermarket. Peeved, the netizen informed the Chinese woman that there is a non-Halal section in the same supermarket only for the smiling woman to still take the meat from the Halal rack.

The netizen wrote: “I cannot emphasise the number of times I was greeted by empty shelves of Halal meat when grocery shopping. Just because you see that aisle first, doesn’t mean you can just take them. The issue isn’t with ignorance as the signs cannot be anymore bolder, brighter or bigger. Let’s all work to be more gracious to one another.”

Exclusivity and self-entitlement. Rubbish.

A screenshot of the netizen’s original post was shared online by Facebook user Audi Khalid who thought the suggestion was rubbish and that the original poster was self-entitled. Several Singaporeans – Muslims and non-Muslims alike – agreed with Khalid’s assessment and blasted the netizen for their comments.

Muslims, especially, urged non-Muslims in Singapore to buy all the Halal meat they want and asserted that the netizen who posted the suggestion is a “fool” who does not represent all Muslims:
