Dear A.S.S. Editor
In the wake of the arrest of the first Singaporean female to be radicalised, the MHA has called on everybody to do their part to weed out radicalisation, by reporting those individuals who they feel are the most at risk of radicalisation.
By working together to weed out these radicalised individuals and to report them early, they could be stopped from being led astray by extremist ideology and may not need to be severely dealt with under the law. Such a move would also give these individuals the opportunity to receive proper guidance and counselling, and be steered away from the radicalisation. The MHA made the call to the family members, relatives and friends as well as the community yesterday.
This would seem as a sharp reminder to report family members or close friends who may have gone astray, and with recent terror attacks only requiring easily available objects like vehicles and knives to commit violence, then the threat of terror is heightened more than ever.
