Last Saturday, The Klang Valley was sadly overcome by a tragic flood and Malaysians all over the country came together to help those affected by the flood.  

Even the Sikh Community from Gurdwara Sahib Petaling Jaya (GSPJ) prepared free vegetarian food for the flood victims in the area. However, there were a few people who started questioning the halal status of the food prepared by them.

When a Twitter user, @Inbarajs posted a tweet about the free food distribution by GSPJ, another user @taufiqhziq said that haram is still haram. @Inbarajs then responded asking him to point out which vegetables are haram.

Many netizens came forward to state that the Gurdwara only serves vegetarian food which is halal. However, many were still worried to eat the food provided.  

Here’s what some netizens had to say about the issue:

Since it became a huge public debate on social media, the former Minister in the Prime Minister's Department (Religious Affairs), Senator Datuk Dr. Zulkifli Mohamad Al-Bakri came forward to clarify the matter.

He said that as long as the food did not involve the slaughtering of animals, then there’s no problem eating it. He also thanked the Sikh community for helping those in need.
