MM Lee says his comments on Muslim are outdated and irrelevant

Following the release of Minister Mentor's latest book launch titled "Hard Truths To Keep Singapore Going", he commented,

I would say today, we can integrate all religions and races except Islam.

I think we were progressing very nicely until the surge of Islam came and if you asked me for my observations, the other communities have easier integration — friends, intermarriages and so on.

I think the Muslims socially do not cause any trouble, but they are distinct and separate, calling on the community to be less strict on Islamic observances.

His comments stoked a sense of unhappiness among Muslims and had thus resulted several clearing of misunderstanding among ministers, including Minister-in-Charge of Muslim Affairs Dr Yaacob Ibrahim, and Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong who so happen to be son of MM Lee.

Today, after more than a month since his debatable comment, MM Lee said that comment on Muslims integrating with other communities was made probably two or three years ago. The latest book was based on 32 interviews over a period of two years. This comment was relevant two years ago but am not today. MM Lee viewed today's Singapore is very much different in a span of just two years, with the Muslim community integrated with the other races. He hopes this trend to continue.

Change in just two years? That's revolutionary isn't it?

ACJC Birthday Girl Tied Up and Tortured

The two videos mentioned are particularly shocking to me because of two factors. First of all, the perpetrators are practically all females, with a few boys in the background cheering. I never knew women are into such cruelty as well. Second, it occurred in bright daylight at a crowded school canteen - where everybody can see! The poor victim was tied to a chin-up bar and attacked mercilessly. All in the name of “celebrating” her birthday.

The school where all these took place is a well-reputed school - Anglo-Chinese Junior College (ACJC). (No point in concealing the school’s identity as the uniform of the students involved is obvious).

Video captured on the incident was uploaded onto YouTube but was taken down after this matter was blown up.
