The Facebook user who posted the picture, Rosman S Saleh, said that he alerted the food court manager about the incident, and that the people only put the non-halal food away after he did that – but not before calling the user a racist. They only put the pork away after the manager come but still say this bro was racist.

Several users who commented on Rosman’s post said that the patrons were being insensitive to Muslims, and that all they were asking for was a little respect and understanding. They said that non-Muslims who come into a halal food outlet to eat should be aware of such religious food restrictions.
