Pro-Israel NSF posts online criticism against Islam

Just when the young PAP (YPAP) member Jason Neo 'racist' online posting on his Facebook page stereotyping a bus load of young Malays as young terrorist trainees is still fresh in our mind, yet another similar case under the Sedition Act is reported - this time against a NSF by the name of Christian Eliab Ratnam.

A Nov 20, 2011 post on The Sunday Times "NSF posts online picture of text criticising Islam"

The national serviceman, identified as Mr Christian Eliab Ratnam, had posted a picture of text claiming, among other more inflammatory things, that Islam is not a religion but 'an authoritarian, political doctrine which imposes itself by force'.

Mr Ratnam's Facebook account has since been deactivated. But an edited screenshot of his posting was put up on TOC on Friday evening. It drew swift condemnation of Mr Ratnam from netizens.

TOC later ran a statement from Mr Ratnam apologising for the posting. It stated that he was not affiliated with any group nor did he wish to cause disharmony.

This is the second such investigation in recent days. Last week, police commenced investigations into one Jason Neo for an offensive caption of a picture of Malay children in a schoolbus, which he put on Facebook.

Checks on the Internet found that Mr Ratnam appears to support pro-Israel and Jewish causes.

Screenshots and a cached version of his Facebook page showed an image of Israel's flag and the symbol for the Israel Defence Forces. He was also a member of a Facebook group for Israelis and Jews living in Singapore.

In a Facebook group called 'anti-feminist empire', Mr Ratnam made a posting that directed readers to another group, started by his wife.

Called 'Submissive and Obedient Wives (For G-d and Husband)', the Facebook group advocates that a wife submit, obey and revere her husband. It quotes extensively from the Bible and Torah.

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.
