Commentary: Singapore Drifting Further Apart From The Ideals Of Our Pledge
If we are indeed serious about combating religious extremism and “nurturing” a multi cultural society, we should begin by allowing people to practice their religion freely, all the while keeping in mind our non religious neighbours instead of suppression that will give rise to all sorts of doubts and conspiracy theories. It will also compel religious minorities into the arms of religious extremists, seeking to convince them on the “evils” of a secular society.Read More »

WHY OKAY FOR PAP MP RAHAYU TO RAISE TUDUNG ISSUE BUT WP FAISAL MANAP CANNOT?
WP's Faisal Manap got a tongue lashing from PAP Minister Masagos Zulkifli for repeatedly raising discordant issues (tudung) in Parliament, so my question is why the double standard? Why only PAP MPs are allowed to discuss sensitive issues but an elected Opposition MP Faisal Manap cannot? In 2016, PAP MP Rahayu Mahzam raised the tudung issue in Parliament and urged open dialogue on the matter. So how is what Madam Rahayu said different from that of Mr Faisal Manap? Just because Mr Manap is from the WP, the Minister take aim at him? Why never chastise Mdm Rahayu when she too raised such sensitive issues in Parliament to "score political points?"Read More »
DEAR FAISAL MANAP, TUDUNG IS IMPORTANT BUT SO IS SINGAPORE’S UNITY
Mr Faisal Manap, do you know why the attire our men and women in the SAF and Police and Nursing is called a uniform? It's because it is meant to be UNIFORM, to show that regardless of religion, language or race, these personnel strive to be equal and uphold the pledge to defend all Singaporeans, not just their own race or religion. I hope Mr Faisal can truly be an MP for all Singaporeans instead of just the malay community. I hope you can see how your constant raising of such sensitive issues may cause others outside the malay community to feel uneasy. You are an elected MP, you have the right to raise any issue in Parliament, I hope you use your power with responsibility and help move Singapore forward, not just keep it exclusive for our malay community.Read More »

S’POREAN MUSLIM LADY REJECTED FOR JOB @ SHANGRI-LA RESORT BCUS SHE WEAR HIJAB
Unbelievable. Just got rejected from a part time position (Kids Club Assistant) at Shangri La Singapore because of my hijab. "I'm sorry we cannot employ you if you wear that thing on your head, we have a strict grooming code, so sorry about it. We went through the job scope (taking care of young children.. bringing them for games, lunch and dinner), my availability suited the time periuodrequired by the company - everything was okay except for the fact that I cover myself. Someone explain to me how this "thing on my head" would in any way prevent me from carrying out the job I was assigned to as well as anyone else without a hijab.Read More »
