Yellow trolleys for non-halal, green trolleys for Muslims
The Ministry of Domestic Trade is mulling guidelines to segregate supermarket trolleys under a new business licencing requirement.
It is suggested that the trolleys be differentiated by colour. A further option is to have separate payment counters for halal and non-halal items.
What’s with the outrage over halal trolleys?
Why are the vocal Firsters being so angry and sarcastic about the idea?
Even if they disagree, they’re still free to voice their disagreement with the proposal in a civil manner.
After all, these “colour blind” Firsters claim to be “beyond creed”, i.e. always sensitive and respectful of their neighbour’s religion. They’re the ones promoting the wearing of tudung by non-Muslim women.
Yet here they are … whacking away. All their keenness to sama-sama buka puasa is put on the backburner now that they’re mocking Malay-Muslims and denigrating haram dietary and other taboos.
So which colour trolley should Jerusubang’s Madame Speaker use — yellow or green?
