Thoughts : Singapore (Islamic Issues)

Headscarves and National Integration?: An unpublished letter sent to The Straits Times on the 13th of October, 2003, stating my view that Muslims should be allowed to wear headscarves to school – believing that such would not go against the desire for national integration.

The Tudung Issue and the PKMS: An unpublished letter sent to The Straits Times on the 4th of January, 2003. I write here about the need to try to understand why the Singapore Malay National Organisation (PKMS) and family involved in this recent Tudung controversy are opposed to the government’s policy, rather than just imputing unflattering motives to them.

Muslim Concerns Unacknowledged by the Singapore Government: An unpublished letter (understandably so because of the sensitivity of the topic!) sent to the The Straits Times on the 19th of January, 2002. It is about the lack of understanding shown by the Singaporean Government towards the concerns the local Muslim community have towards American bombing of Afghanistan.
