Walter Theseira on secularism to protect public space in the interests of all

(Updated: )

NMP Walter Theseira has stressed the need to promote and reinforce an enlightened secularism to protect the public space in the interests of all. Speaking in Parliament on Monday (Apr 1), he said as a multiracial and multi-religious society, each of the communities has a different idea about that public space. “Our society must keep that common wellspring clear. If we each seek to dye the water according to our own particular persuasion, we will soon find that there is nothing but darkness there,” he said.
