In Malaysia, it is common to see smokers huffing and puffing away almost everywhere, in the streets, parking areas and even in restaurants, however there are certain premises where smoking is banned and ignoring this may have consequences.

Such an incident took place recently at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA2) terminal. A man was iisued a summons for smoking at KLIA2 by two Health Ministry officers, as reported by New Straits Times.

The incident went viral on social media after a TikTok user known as @hanif_zubair, recorded and uploaded it on his TikTok profile.

@hanif_zubair Maaf bang. Bukan xnk tegur.. Tak sempat nak tegur dorg dah usya dulu. #kkm #klia2 ♬ Semakin Rindu Semakin Asyik – Amelina

The man in the video was smoking right next to a ‘No Smoking’ sign when he was approached by the officers in plainclothes.

Netizens were happy with the officers’ action against the smoker.

There are many rules regarding places where smokers can have their smoking break. Among places that have been designated as no smoking areas are restaurants, including their outdoor dining areas.

However, there are still people who ignore this rule and signs, which in return harms the people around them.

According to an article by the National Cancer Institute, smoke from burning tobacco products and smoke breathed by smokers are combined to create secondhand tobacco smoke. Involuntary smoking, ambient tobacco smoke, and passive smoke are further names for it.

Secondhand smoking contains more than 7,000 different compounds, according to research. At least 69 of these substances, including arsenic, benzene, beryllium, chromium, and formaldehyde, are known to be carcinogenic.
