The fact is allowing the Philippines people working in Singapore to celebrate their independence day in our own country public place is definitely wrong, period! However, I think there is no offence if they wanted to celebrate the event in their own embassy ground here. The Singapore Day in London has nothing to do with celebrating a nationalistic or political event. It is the government’s gesture to reach out to Singaporeans living in England and in Europe.

Dr Andy Ho suggested that people with schizophrenia be exempted from national service (“Exempt these young men from NS”; last Sunday). Already, society attaches a stigma to mental illness; many companies, educational institutions and insurers ask applicants whether they have a history of such conditions. A blanket policy to exempt those with schizophrenia or other serious mental illnesses from NS will only amplify the stigma they face.

So instead of heeding my demand of making an apology and removing the offensive poster on their FB, PIDC has chosen to remove my comments and band me from commenting on their FB. This is such an attitude of an organization which pretends to promote "interdependence" with Singapore! They do not understand the gravity of the hurt they have asserted on Singaporeans' feelings with their idiocy and insensitivity and chose to ignore the rightful demands for their admission of their mistakes.
While there have been 3 major seizures of illegal ivory so far this year in Singapore, animal welfare activists are saying that this is just the tip of the iceberg. In total there have only been 8 seizures since 2008 but the reality is that a lot of illegal ivory is being falsely declared as goods such as coffee berries, marble sculptures and waste paper in order to pass undetected through Singapore.
The “huge” statues at a Hindu temple in Batu Caves and Buddhist temple in Penang are an affront to Islam as the religion forbids idolatry, a retired Court of Appeals judge said. “With such a huge statue, you’re showing that your religion is all mighty and powerful,” Mohd Noor told The Malay Mail Online and Bernama in an joint interview yesterday, referring to the 42.7-metre high statue of Lord Murugan, the Hindu warrior god, at Batu Caves in Selangor.Datuk Mohd Noor Abdullah stressed that such sculptures of non-Muslim deities should not be built in the open, but should be placed within an enclosed building instead. Pointing to the Federal Constitution which states that Islam is the religion of the federation, the former judge insisted Islam is above other faiths.
