There is an issue deep in the heart of Singapore Muslims. This issue is something G is unable to understand or chooses to ignore it.
The verdict is already out for Minister Yaacob Ibrahim, the Minister-in-charge of Muslim Affairs. I need not state the obvious here.
Singaporeans Muslims have A VOICE. They are not EXTREMISTS.
With the emergence of ISIS and increasing waves of terrorist attacks, Singapore Muslims find a need to defend themselves and convince other Singaporeans that they are not linked to the terrorists. There seems to be a constant need for Singapore Muslims to ask for acceptance.
Thus, the question …, “Is the burden of racial harmony on Singapore Muslims”?
Why are we reacting strongly to the Paris attacks compared to the cleansing of Rohingya people in Myanmar? Are we placing too much attention on Islam?
We are indeed searching for a new definition of racial harmony. As Madam Rohayu mentioned in Parliament, the Muslim community has expressed concern over the increasing Islamophobia. It has been observed that some Muslims are growing somewhat more distant from the rest of the Singaporean community. There is a need to have very frank conversations about real issues facing the community.
I hope she is the princess warrior in shining armour.
