NDR 2021: PM Lee Hsien Loong addresses racist incidents in Singapore, calls on majority to be more sensitive

“The majority must be more sensitive to the concerns of the minorities. We must also have the moral courage to take a stand against racist behaviour,” said Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong during his National Day Rally speech on Sunday (Aug 29). He noted a few racist incidents that have taken place in Singapore – several that targeted Indians. "I understand people are frustrated the Delta variant managed to get into Singapore, but it is illogical to blame this on Indians, just as it is illogical to blame the Alpha variant on the English, the KTV cluster on Vietnamese, or the initial outbreak in Wuhan on the Chinese," he said.
