Chinese woman passing by HDB corridor clasps hands to pay respect to Indian resident's deity​

Spontaneous display of micro-compassion.

A woman in Singapore was seen clasping her hands together to pay respect to a deity placed by the front door of a HDB unit, in what can be described as a spontaneous act of micro-compassion.

The short 9-second clip taken from a CCTV camera placed outside the HDB unit has been widely lauded after it appeared on Twitter on June 10, 2021.

What video showed​



A woman in a purple top, who appeared to be Chinese, could be seen emerging from the lift and walking towards the unit.

As she walked past the home, a resident, who appeared to be Indian, was outside along the corridor attending to the deity.

The woman in purple, who was masked, spontaneously clasped her hands in front of her face and nodded slightly as she walked past.

Her actions caught the resident off-guard, even though her back was facing the woman walking past.

The resident then did a double take to confirm what had just happened.

Responses​

The small act won big praise online, in light of the recent unsavoury episodes of racism in Singapore.

These praises included:

even that woman was shock😂😂 but yes respect is the simplest act

However, this act of paying respect to deities has been observed to be frequently performed by the Chinese whenever they chance upon religious artefacts.

It has been attributed to their practice of polytheism.

Actually it is more of Chinese's superstition and fear to offend supernatural beings.

Actually quite a few Chinese temples have Hindu deities and vice versa. Their followers will pray to each other's deities too. One of the most beautiful things about sg.

I think is no harm praying to other religion god.

Trust kopeship to virtue signal until such ridiculous extents. It's one thing to highlight racial/religious harmony, it's another to try and portray "paying respects" to another person's religion as a form of it. There is no need for anyone to go to such an extent.

Then those who refuse to pray to them when they pass by because it is not their religion how? Are they considered "bad" people or any less "respectful" than that lady? The abrahamic religions have strict rules about praying to any another gods.

Also, article makes the fatal assumption that all chinese here practise polytheism.

PS: Why is there a cctv in the hdb corridor in the first place? Was permission given? They set it just to take a shot of such a thing?
