In his latest remarks urging our Muslims to be alert to radicals, the Second Minister for Home Affairs, Masagos Zulkifli, warned of the growing presence of and threats posed by “absolutists” in the community.
He advised that Muslims should not easily “succumb” to the views and opinions of “absolutists”.
“They may look attractive, they may look correct,” he said, “but do not be gullible.”
Mr Masagos warned that these “absolutists” interpret the teachings of Islam in a rigid way, and that those who disagreed with their views were seen as “un-Islamic”, for example.
The emergence of these “absolutists” could be a result of religious teachers coming here from “all over” the world.
“The variations of Islam they embrace are ‘very cultural’, and some of the conflicts experienced in other countries are brought to Singapore”, he told CNA on Sunday.
An Indian Muslim friend tells me that the FT religious leader for his community can only come from a paerticular village and can only speak the dialect of the area he comes from. His Koranic knowledge comes from memorising the Koran. How does this amount to a talent policy?
Btw, the NUS Law School should seriously look at stopping the import of foreign trash. I mean a law professor who has regular sex a student and claims he has academic integrity? And claims he was fixed because he criticised our judges? Academics are not supposed to have sex with their students, ever. https://atans1.wordpress.com/2013/01/16/reputations-be-mean-laugh/
And now another FT faculty member beats up a taxi uncle.
