I reside in Teban Gardens. Since September last year, my neighbour next door has been using joss sticks, joss papers and candles to pray towards our front door every day and wish my family dead.
Our family is not on talking terms with him. He has been making remarks towards my family members by calling us ‘pigs’.
We tried to talk to him but with no outcome as he still thinks that what he did was right and alleged that I am creating trouble for people who are offering prayers to God.
We are a family of mixed heritage with family members of various faiths and beliefs. As such, for him to say that it is part of his religious ritual goes beyond all logic, in an attempt to mask his desire to cause annoyance.
We had quarrelled previously and our case was even brought up for mediation before a magistrate. We even called the police several times but there was nothing that can be done against my neighbour.
