You have heard of Halal restaurants, but what about Halal Lift?
There is this hotel in Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia where there is good service lift is meant ONLY for Halal (permissible to use or engage in, according to Islamic law) goods. For those carrying Haram (prohibited) stuff like beer or pork, one needs to use the staircase.
The plastic signage reads: This Elevator Is Only For Transporting Halal Goods Only. For Non-Halal Goods Please Use The Staircase.
According to Free Malaysia Today, the so-called “Halal” lift is at Crystal Crown Hotel at Lorong Utara A, Off Jalan Utara,
Petaling Jaya, Selangor. The signage can be seen at levels B1, B2 and B3.
Is it necessary? I’m not too sure.
