Shanmugam Preaches That Allowing Watain To Perform In SG Can Affect Social And Religious Harmony

He does not, however, say why the Singapore government in the first place allowed the band to perform here with a Restricted 18 (R18) rating. This means the band have been told to abide with other “stringent requirements” put in place, including the removal of religiously offensive songs, references to religion or using religious symbols, and ritualistic acts on stage. But they then the last minute ban? If the government had known all along that the band represents a danger to our social and religious harmony, why were they allowed to come in to SG in the first place? And only ban them last minute, on the day of the concert itself? Is it because of pressure from some entity that the government must kowtow to?

PROTECT S'PORES RELIGIOUS HARMONY, APPLY LAWS FAIRLY TO ALL RELIGIOUS LEADERS

With regards to the case of a Muslim imam making comments which called for the domination of Christians and Jews, if he is found to be making such insensitive comments which could be misunderstood by the majority of Singaporeans, I hope the authorities will take firm and fair action as a warning to all. In 2010, 2 Christian pastors were hauled by the ISD for mocking Taoists and Christians during their private sermons in Church. Both sermons were uploaded onto YouTube and Singaporeans at large were upset that these religious leaders make a mockery of other religions and were disrespectful to Singapore's religious harmony. If the Christian pastors were taken to task in 2010 for putting other religions down, all religious leaders need to be held against the same standards to preserve our religious harmony.

KIND CLEANER AUNTIE SHARES PRIVATE REST SPOT FOR MUSLIMAH TO DO MAGHRIB PRAYERS

I have a 'solat buddy'. A prayer buddy. She's not muslim, we are not of the same race and we don't even speak the same language! World's apart, this elderly aunty and I share this set of newspapers. Her to rest, me to perform my maghrib prayers. Every friday i need a corner to perform my maghrib prayers in a shopping mall between my lessons. My usual spot is taken away due to construction so one friday, this lady saw me pacing back n forth for a place to pray and so willingly did she get up from her newspapers, spread it out to me and gestured for me to do my prayers beside her. Ever since then, every Friday she does the same for me.
