Not his biggest fan, never will accept all his policies, never will understand some of his policies that affect our Malay/Muslim community.
However, we recognise what he and his generation had done and sacrificed for the progress of the country. There are many tangible and not-so-tangible evidence of the progress.
He was also undeniably a skilled statesman that was respected by many international leaders. That was a plus point for our country.
Now that he has passed, maybe we owe it to him to just be respectful, at least for this mourning period. Let’s show our adab and class as Malays of Singapore. Show the current leaders what we are made of.
So thank you Mr Lee Kuan Yew for your tireless efforts and for helping to provide for what we have.
To Mr Lee Hsien Loong and family, our condolences for the bereavement.
