Malay community not consulted enough about their concerns

In Political governance, Public Administration on 03/01/2020 at 3:42 am

No, not fake news that deserves to kanna PORMA, but from the PAP’s very own minister for Malay affairs, a few weeks ago

Malay-Muslim community to be consulted on more issues that concern them: Masagos

Malay-Muslims will get more say in Singapore’s policy-making, in line with the Government’s overall strategy for the future, said Mr Masagos Zulkifli in a media interview pertaining to issues to do with the community on Tuesday (Dec 17).

Ciptasama@M3, or Co-creation@M3, is the name of a new programme to encourage the community to participate in policy-making. It will be launched next year, led by Minister of State for Manpower and National Development Zaqy Mohamad.

OK, OK, he didn’t actually say that “Malay community not consulted enough about their concerns”: its shumething his comments and the constructive, nation-building headline imply. But then in the recent POFMA orders, the word “implied” appeared in the orders against Brad Bowels and Lim Tean. Brad Bowyers

said the authorities had read the four points of his post “wrongly and then said my post ‘implied’ this and ‘implied’ that and so demanded it to be labelled as false”.

So if PAP govt, can say facts can be implied, so can I: can’t I?

All things “Malay”

Watain fans: Muslims cannot be, but can Malays be?

Anti-PAP Malay that ungrateful meh?

Fake news law: Malays not stupid

The silence of the Malay Minister

NLB is very sensitive about Malays and Muslims

Legendary Malay hero was really Indian/ Blame Mendaki, not PAP

Why PAP thinks we need a Malay president?

Finally, “Malay” race: no such race

If you are wondering how this piece is relevant, think the row between MoM and SDP  Actually I was reminded of what minister said by MoM’s snarky response to the SDP. Look it up.
