Meanwhile, another netizen suggested for the school to also demonstrate to their Muslim students the proper way to perform sertu if they ever come into contact with a dog.

 is a cleansing or purification ritual that Muslims perform if they come into contact with impure things or animals, such as dogs, in Islam.

"I wish they would demonstrate how to do a right sertu for Muslim students as well, to encourage them and to tell Muslims that it is okay, especially if they have to save a dog with their hands and do not have some form of protection on them at the time," they said.
