PM Lee disagrees with his dad MM Lee's perspective on the Muslims

In Minister Mentor Lee Kwan Yew latest book launch, he made several comments on the Muslims and had resulted in hot debate and disagreement among the Singapore community.

Yesterday, Minister-in-Charge of Muslim Affairs, Dr Yaacob Ibrahim, tried hard to defend Minister Mentor Lee Kwan Yee's recent negative comments on the Muslim community in Singapore. Yaacob urges Singaporeans to put MM Lee's comments about the Muslim community into perspective despite disagreeing with MM Lee.

Today, Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong finally responded to his father MM Lee's comments. In short, PM Lee disagreed with his father's comments.

But my own perspectives on how things are in Singapore based on my interaction with the Malay community, the mosque and religious leaders and the grassroots leaders, is not quite the same as MM's.

Okay, PM Lee is the first to publicly disagree with Minister Mentor Lee Kwan Yew. Would this regain some votes given our PM has come out to clear the air among the Malay community?

Muslims have done much to strengthen integration, says PM Lee [via]
