Freedom of worship is a right enshrined in the constitution. We have been praying under the staircase at the capark of Regency Park Condominium for many years. We understand that it is the common property of the estate and we have kept the place clean and neat and it does not obstruct any human movement nor does it pose a safety hazard to anyone.
However, the condo manager, Ms Jennifer Peh from Saville property management pte Ltd managing agent has thrown our praying carpets and told us to pray outside the permises. When we appealed to let us use that little space under the staircase, she told us arrogantly “If you want to pray, go to the mosque”. She even challenged us to “complain to your MUIS”
We work as personal drivers and have to be in the condo vicinity at all times, in case our bosses need our services. Even our bosses who are residents in the estate do not mind us praying under the staircase and our bosses feel that the harsh action and words of Ms Jennifer Peh is uncalled for. Where is the religious tolerance that the government keeps on promoting?
