The comments made by M Na’im Sahib Marican are wrong. I condemn them in the strongest possible terms.
But let me say that the family of M Na’im Sahib Marican has written to All Singapore Stuff when the article was first published stating that he is “in a [serious] state of mental psychosis and is seeking psychological treatment at the IMH” and request their assistance to take down the article. An email has also been sent to The Independent – Singapore seeking their assistance to take down the photo with MP Tan Chuan Jin that includes the photo of a minor.
Before we jump to our own [righteous] conclusions, shall we take a step back and understand the emotional roller coaster that the family members of M Na’im Sahib Marican is currently going through. It is not easy to deal with a mentally ill patient in your family and having to address matters regarding the law all at the same time.
What M Na’im Sahib Marican needs at this moment is medical treatment. He is presently receiving it.
