The person who is recording the video call the police as he thinks that the burning of incense in public places is creating a big problem for the nearby community.
Do you agree with him? Is incense burning consider a serious problem in Singapore? Should we have a proper place for incense burning to prevent such issue to happen again? From the video, you can see that most of the residents and public members seem to be challenging the person who made the police report and record the video.
Let's see what other netizens says about this incident that break-out today!
Aan Al-Shariff - Very bad.. frm void deck wedding nw hell notes burning.. why ppls racist nwdays.. i am very sad with our Sporean today.. you ppls think dat the harmony today we get is due of our country rich? Nope.. it due that we live happily n understand each other but if more n more cannot tolerate we become problem.. pls stop racist
Peter Therock - Chinese want to burn, go further to the pathway near the main road and burn. You know what, they burn under the block and who kena, 2nd floor resident sure not happy, ashes flying into their house. Wow kong tiok boh.
All races must help one another and live in harmony.
Melissa Chew - I'm a Chinese who live at second floor. Ashes is a small issue, what if the burning paper gets into my house and causes fire when no one's at home? U can burn to ur heart's content at a designated open area with bins provided, but some people are really inconsiderate n burn next to my windows or nursery center. The gov should really look into this matter seriously.
Mohammad Farhan - But as what the man in white top and sarong said that he did not stop anyone from praying. His request was to shift the burning steel container to another location. I think he stays on the 2nd floor and I think most of the ashes entered his home and what made the matter worse is his child suffered asthma. But I think the authorities have to set a designated place for the burning ritual, be it burning of paper, joss stick or big candle. Please do not make a comparison between religions. We should respect all religions & races. Usually during 7th Month, I would make a big detour in my neighbourhood but some times when the prayers are overwhelming, I do not know how to detour. It is not nice to walk past our Chinese neighbours with our hands covering our mouth. If you do not want your laundry to smell of smoke or ashes stick onto it, invest on a dryer or dry it indoor. So Singaporeans, give and take alright?
Edmund Tan - Well, 4 burning bins within a small radius in a small poor ventilated area. To be fair to the Malay resident who is staying right above the ground floor. The organisers should be more considerate. Bcos there might be old folk or young children at home who has difficulties in breathing.
