A Group Of Self Righteous Christians Got MHA To Ban Black Metal Concert

Imagine the fans who were anticipating the concert itself. To get banned on the day they were supposed to enjoy their day out. All because some Christian groups deemed the band as satanic, and its music as a negative influence on youths. The petition was actually called “Ministry of Culture Community and Youth Ban Satanic Music Groups Watain and Soilwork From Performing in Singapore“. They got the agency to call for the ban wrong, but the government actually bowed down to their demands, nonetheless.

FOREIGN ENTITIES APPEAL TO SUPPORT PINK DOT, OUTRIGHTLY REJECTED BY AUTHORITIES

A group of foreign companies such as Facebook, Google and Uber wrote in to Singapore authorities to ask for permission to support this year's Pink Dot but were unfortunately rejected. In their letter, the group of companies expressed support for inclusivity, diversity and in creating a safe space for their employees to work in. They understand Singapore has its own regulations and already suggested not to have their names listed or recognised as official sponsors. They also assured that no foreign representatives will speak at the event. However, our authorities still flat out rejected their application to support the event.

Instead of explaining why they rejected the application, the authorities reiterated that foreign entities must abide by our laws and not fund or support events that concern our domestic matters. Do you think this is necessary to make Pink Dot free from "foreign intervention"?

AUTHORITIES MAY TAKE ACTION AGAINST FAMILY OF DETAINED WOMAN

Authorities may take action against a family member of the detained woman, Syaikhah Izzah Zarah Al Ansari, for destroying important evidence on her plans to join ISIS. The family member attempted to erase the evidence after she was put under investigation. This comes even though they were against ISIS and did not support her radical ideas.

The Ministry of Home Affairs said "The Government takes a serious view of the withholding of information that is pertinent to the safety and security of Singapore and Singaporeans... This is especially so if the failure to report leads to violent activities that would kill or cause harm to others".

PINK DOT DISAPPOINTED WITH MHA'S NEW PERMIT RULES, URGE LOCAL COMPANIES TO STEP FORWARD

We respect and understand the Ministry of Home Affairs’ position, however, we are disappointed by the latest clarifications from the ministry. Pink Dot has always been a local movement dedicated to bringing LGBT Singaporeans closer to their friends and families and closer to Singapore society as a whole – a universal aspiration that we do not consider to be controversial or political. As our society continues to evolve, we hope that this will be the start of an ongoing dialogue and we look forward to continue engaging with the various government agencies to better foster understanding between the government and the LGBT community in the long term. In light of the new rules, we call on more Singaporeans and local companies, who share in our desire and vision for a more diverse and inclusive Singapore, to step forward to support us in Pink Dot 2017.
