Worst Forum letter in a long time.

The Aware incidents have glaringly highlighted the fragility of our multiracial and multireligious society. It has given us a useful peek into the potential troubles that may crop up when there is a polarisation of a particular view championed on grounds of a faith – real or perceived.

The Association of Women for Action and Research (Aware) was an interest group with merely 300 members until recently. Yet, the racial and religious mix of its ‘new’ executive committee made some Singaporeans uncomfortable.

Yeah. It was just the religious mix of the old new exco of AWARE that cheesed people off. Nothing about the hostile takeover. If they were all committed atheists, no one would care. Rigghhtttt. (If minority representation in Parliament, by the way, is the goal, there are other ways to achieve that – reserve seats, using proportional representation, etc. – that doesn’t have this queer side effect of giving the PAP an insurmountable advantage).
