PAP admit not giving Malay equal footing in SAF

MP asks how position of Malays in SAF compares to those of new citizens

By Rachel Chang

PAP MP Zaqy Mohamad (Chua Chu Kang GRC) today asked for the Government's assurance that the status and role of Malay men in the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) would continue to improve as the population expands with newcomers.

He was the latest Malay MP of several this week to touch on how the Malay-Muslim community will be affected as the population heads towards a projected 6.9 million in 2030.

They have expressed concern during the Parliamentary debate on the Population White Paper that a disproportionately small number of immigrants are Muslim or from Malaysia and Indonesia.

Mr Zaqy noted that the Ministry of Defence has stated in the past that it is evolving its policy on Malays in top positions in the SAF and "is in sync and aware of where the community wants to head."

But with four out of ten marriages already between Singaporeans and foreigners, Mr Zaqy wanted to know "what will be the position of our Malay sons of Singapore next to those of families with foreign spouses and new citizens?"

When the sons from local-foreign marriages reach the age to enter National Service, he said that he hoped that "our national security narrative pertaining to the Malays serving in the defence sector would have also evolved, and that all sons of Singapore get equal footing in all opportunities, including that in our national security services."


P/S Malays and Indians in Pakatan Rakyat think DAP will be fair to all races? 



Lim Guan Eng regularly seek advise from Uncle Lee Kuan Yew and has a full time operational office in Orchard Road, Singapore.

    Those Malay bastards that supported the DAP should look deeply at Singapore how their PAP counterparts are treating the Malay Muslims in the Singapore Armed Forces with great discrimination. There is no equal treatment in the service be it in the Army , Navy or Air Force. On one occasion there was a Malay who applied to join the Navy and during the interview he was ridiculed and insulted by the 3 interviewing officers that the Navy has no place for Malays and if he still want to join he is asked if he is prepared to eat pork since the Navy do not serve halal food on board ship...

    Lee Kuan Yew is a walking skeleton.His days are numbered. Its a fact. How can a human being lasts long in this world. When god calls for him , he should surrender himself, he just cannot ask for the courts to postpone his death.This is a fact. Asks Hannah Yeoh of Subang Jaya who is a true believer, or even brother LGE himself , its gods work. Do not interfere.When the times comes, go lah . Rests in Peace. Sooner or later, thats god to decide, we can only predicts when thru sickness and senility, or inconsistencies.Thats a sign from god. Thats god works.
