Here are what netizens think:
- Totally acceptable! It’s also a way of blessing to others. Nothing wrong with that!
- I was told by my BIL it’s okay to take the offerings from an altar or set aside on the street. As long as you are respectful about it. However , don’t be surprised if the food is somewhat tasteless. Apparently according to Taoist belief, the essence of the food is consumed by the entities hence only the solid food remains.
- never mind la….at least he pray pray. Its ok to give!
- At least he knows how to respect the God what if those angmos people they take the fruits later smashed the atlar and throw them onto the floor than that time how?
The offence of theft under Section 379 of the Penal Code, Chapter 224 carries a jail term of up to 3 years, or a fine, or both.
