To Editors of All Singapore Stuff
I do not understand why our K2 students have to be forced to give thanks to ex-President S R Nathan. Why is it necessary to create activity sheets for young impressionable kids to commemorate his achievements? This was shared by a parent online, who child attends an MOE kindergarten.
Can give our children a break and stop trying to brainwash them from young? S R Nathan did some good things, but he was also a translator of the Japanese during WWII. While the patriots of Singapore died in defence of Singapore, S R Nathan turned his back on Singaporeans and worked for the Japanese during the Occupation.
If you want to make an activity sheet, give a balance of opinion, not just his nice looking achievements but include his ugly past. Be fair and stop trying to spread such government propaganda to our young. They deserve the whole truth, not half truths like these.
