UNDENIABLE PROOF EMERGES OF IZZAH AL ANSARI SUPPORTING ISIS, TRIED TO LEAD YOUNG DAUGHTER ASTRAY

Yesterday Singapore's first radicalised female Syaikhah Izzah Zahrah Al Ansari (22 yr old) was detained for support Islamic State terror group but I see some citizens refuse to believe in her crime. They say Singaporeans should not blindly trust the government's words and asked to see proof of Izzah supporting ISIS. A simple internet search found pictures of Syaikhah Izzah Zahrah Al Ansari dressed in a niqab together with her so young daughter holding up their index fingers (tawhid; oneness of Allah) which has been misused by ISIS as their symbol of victory over the infidels. How could she do this and get her young daughter involved in her mistaken violent beliefs?

FATHER OF DETAINED WOMAN REGRETS NOT REPORTING HER, ASK OTHERS TO BE ALERT

The father of the first woman who was detained under the ISA has expressed regret for not reporting her to the authorities. Mr Manaf did not seek help as he thought his daughter was getting better after she started watching movies and stopped wearing the niqab - a full veil that only leaves the eyes visible. He said she was good at hiding whatever she was doing.

It was only until she was called up for investigations did he realise that she got worse. Mr Manaf also regrets throwing away his daughter's documents which detailed her plans to move to Syria. He said he did that out of frustration and disgust. Now that he regrets it, he is encouraging other people who face similar problems to alert the authorities or the Religious Rehabilitation Group once they notice suspicious changes in someone.

FIRST PERSON QUESTIONED BY POLICE OVER MRT PROTEST

The police have questioned at least one of the man involved in an alleged protest that took place on an MRT train. The group were protesting against the he detentions under the Internal Security Act (ISA) 30 years ago. The man, Mr Sean Francis Han, 22, is an activist and also the editor of wakeupsg.com.

Mr Han spoke to the media after the left the Police Cantonment Complex, where he was questioned today, and said he did not know if there were any charges against him or the outcome of the questioning. He was also not sure if the rest of the group that took part in the protest will be called up for questioning by the police. Police had earlier said that they were looking at the protest, where the alleged protesters were seen riding a train on the North-South Line while holding copies of the book and wearing blindfolds in a silent protest.

S'PORE AT CROSSROADS, PAP'S SOLUTION IS TO STAND STILL

Despite globalisation, advancements in IT, etc PAP’s system has hardly evolved with the times. NS, CPF, ISA, etc require a revamp or abolishment but PAP has insisted on tweaks as THE solution.

How is setting up more committees populated by own kakis going to help? Or more government agencies such as WDA with its 1001 schemes which don’t address the root causes of issues?

HUMAN RIGHTS LAWYER: NEVER TRUST THE PAP, NO GOVT EVER WANTS TO LOSE POWER

I am often told that Singaporeans don’t care about the ISA. The fact that this law has been with us for nearly 70 years is taken for granted and even with respect. Our country’s stability and orderliness are frequently attributed to the presence of this law. I learnt my lesson never to trust the government in 1987! No government wants to lose power. The PAP is no exception. The ISA is too useful a tool for any government. Today, there are about 23 Muslims in prison under the ISA. Three of them have been in prison for about 14 years. We do not know if they had done any wrong because there is no trial.

ABOLISH THE UNFAIR ISA LAW & FREE ALL DETAINEES, LET THEM DEFEND THEMSELVES IN COURT

I read with dismay that another S'porean man has been arrested for professing his support for ISIS terrorist group. I believe this to be unjust and unfair. The Internal Security Act (ISA) used to arrest Zulfikar is an archaic law, undemocratic and should be abolished! Under the law, Mr Zulfikar Shariff has not commited a single crime! Did he hurt someone? Did he work for the terrorist group? Why are they not given a fair trial in open court? What is the Government afraid of the people knowing? Do the right thing and abolish the ISA, free all those unfairly arrested by this unjust law and allow them to defend themselves.

ZULFIKAR SHARIFF'S WHOLE FAMILY PLEDGED LOYALTY TO ISIS FLAG, ARE THEY THREATS TO S'PORE TOO?

The S'porean man Zulfikar Shariff who was arrested for terrorism-related charges was photographed pledging allegiance to a black colour flag. I am not expert on this flag but just google and you know this flag is now the trademark icon used by the ISIS terrorists. But my worrying part about all this is the people in the photo with him, they are his family members and I assume all are his sons. They all posed with the black flag and presumbly support the same ideas as their father?

FAMILY OF ZULFIKAR: HE STOPPED SUPPORTING ISIS AFTER 2014, HIS ISA DETENTION IS UNFAIR

To detain him under the ISA for his views, is not fair. To further accuse him of being an extremist and by extension insinuating terrorism and being a sympathiser of terrorist organisations, is stretching the evidence from his FB page postings. Detaining him under the ISA without trial and without having the opportunity to challenge these aspersions in an open court is an injustice.
