Of Politics, Tudung And Drama. Can Singaporeans Rise Above Theatrics And Politicking?

Sometimes I wonder if our Malay Muslim MPs truly represent everyone or understand our concerns. Take for example the recent tudung debate between Mr Masagos and Mr Faisal. They seem to only care about arguing against each other and playing politics for the sake of it. Mr Masagos had a weak argument. He didn’t even address the tudung issue although

Should Muslims be registered in Singapore?

muslims_registered_singapore_muis

Muslims in Singapore are registered, many I spoke to are supportive of the registration act as it allows them to by pass certain aspects of civil law, such as marriage (ROMM recognizes polygamy), inheritance laws (Faraid; wherein the male relative is entitled 2:1 of the will), burial rites and other privileges. I say privileges because I had to pay $20

Aiseyman! Mufti Menk is not as ‘moderate’ as he makes himself out to be!

Mufti menk

The existence of violent Islamists has enabled many deeply reactionary Islamic preachers to claim the mantle of being “moderate” because they do not support jihadism. This means they can assert values that in any other context would be challenged by liberals and progressives as bigoted, this web intolerant, purchase hateful and reactionary. But cultural relativism allows them to claim to

Aiseyman! Finally WP forms a committee to tackle racial discrimination in Singapore!

WP

Racial discrimination is very much well and alive in Singapore as the many anecdotal accounts can attest to. It not only pervades our society at a personal level but at an institutional level where state policies are formulated around racial quotas, unfounded security concerns and stereotypes. This undercurrent of simmering racism is further exacerbated by the state’s constant denial of

racism_logo_sq

Who says that only the minority race suffers from discrimination and racism? Racism works both ways – even though we usually hear accounts of minorities at the receiving end of racism, it is true that they also discriminate against those who may be part of a racial majority.

Kesian siol this Ello Ed Bello…True that he made some disrespectful comments about Singaporeans and was stupid enough to lie to the police about it, but surely 4 months behind bars is a little too harsh for the offense right? There are so many other bigots, both foreigners and Singaporeans, who have made even worse comments about each other online

I defer to their expert analysis. But I would like to just place one important matter in perspective. Political support (financial or non financial) is a
