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.Read More »

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".Read More »
PARENTS OF RADICALISED WOMAN MUST BE PUNISHED FOR KEEPING QUIET & DESTROYING EVIDENCE
I'm shocked that an infant care teacher was radicalised but more appalled that her parents did not inform the authorities about her! They are religious teachers and yet didn't bother to report her? The news said they also desotryed evidence to minimise her acts! Shouldn't they be punished too? What if she did something serious? What if she influenced or harmed other people? Will they be answerable? Why didn't they seek professional help for her? She could have been guided away from the path of radicalism if they bothered to speak up. Isn't it selfish to keep quiet about something so serious?Read More »

IS BLOGGER ROY NGERNG A RADICAL LEFTIST?
Is Roy Ngerng part of an international radical leftist group out to undermine the economic and political system of Singapore? Has he all along been receiving the `tools’ or instructions from this group to `understand the political-economic system and to organise resistance’? Is he aware that he has been made an agent? I do hope my suspicion is wrong. And I do hope that Roy Ngerng was just being naïve and stupid.Read More »
PERGAS URGES SINGAPOREAN MUSLIMS TO REJECT RADICAL ISLAMIC STATE
The Singapore Islamic Scholars and Religious Teachers Association (PERGAS) has expressed its concerns over Islamic State (IS) propaganda and issued a statement to the local Muslim community yesterday, calling on it to be careful and not to be swayed by these. PERGAS said it was of the opinion that “IS and any other groups with radical beliefs that cause bloodshed among Muslims and murder innocent lives are carrying out acts that are against the teachings of Islam and have no links to Islam”.Read More »
DPM Teo why did you grant a radical Singapore citizenship?
From what I see, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to become a supermarket manager. I gather that he must have been a PR for a few years before you granted him citizenship. Was he working as a supermarket manager when he was a PR? Why can’t this job be done by our own Singaporeans in the first place? Why let foreigners come into Singapore to even take such jobs and forcing our own people to end up as taxi drivers? I know of many Singaporean taxi drivers are willing to switch jobs if they can be paid $2-3K a month doing a 9 to 5 job. Given a choice, they won’t want to drive 12-14 hours a day, 7 days a week, just to earn that $2-3K.Read More »
