Committee of Supply 2021 debate, Day 2: Pritam Singh on far-right extremism
01 Mar 2021 04:56pm
In light of the rise of far-right extremism, such as the case of a radicalised Christian teenager who plotted to attack mosques in Singapore, Singaporeans may need reassurance that the Government is not only taking action to counter radicalism, but also that its policies are strictly secular and not at risk of bias towards any particular religious belief. Leader of the Opposition Pritam Singh said this in Parliament on Monday (Mar 1) and also brought up acts of intolerance against the LGBTQ community. He said one solution could be a new White Paper on maintenance of national harmony.
