A story like this shows what makes Malaysia such a wonderful place to live in.
A netizen named Nasx recently (7th May) shared how he broke fast on a ferry not with his own food, but with food distributed by two selfless non-Muslims. He subsequently shared this heartwarming story on Facebook, in a post which has melted many netizens’ hearts.
Based on the FB post, it is understood that the ferry was heading from Pulau Langkawi to Kuala Kedah but had to turn back due to some malfunctions.
“The passengers were asked to switch to another ferry and we don’t have food but water to break fast. Suddenly, a Chinese aunty opened up all her chocolates and distributed them to the Malays in the ferry because she said we have to eat as we were fasting.
“Then, another Chinese man behind me gave me food from KFC. He said I have to eat because I was fasting. If I didn’t want the food, I can give it to others, he said. I just felt like crying,” he wrote.
Nasx went on to praise the generous individuals and emphasised that racism is an individual act and has nothing to do with the race as a whole. Well said!
This inspiring post was shared over 4,000 times and netizens gave their two cents in the comment section.
“We are of different races but ultimately, we’re all Malaysians. Mutual respect is the key for us to live harmoniously in this multi-racial country,” a netizen said.
“In every race, there will be black sheep which is why we shouldn’t judge a race based on an individual’s action. In fact, we shouldn’t judge others at all,” another social media user commented.
