"So what? Is that a task only for women? FYI men also do change baby's diapers," a user wrote in the comments section but Ali clarified that his tweet was indeed an "appreciation post." Several others praised the airport for introducing the facility.
However, airport officials said that the diaper-changing station was introduced several years ago and many people use the facility daily.
