S'pore should send a strong signal to radical groups


I refer to the reports about a British soldier who was killed by two suspected terrorists in London.

The barbaric act serves as a reminder that the threat of terrorism still exists worldwide, including in Singapore.

As a Muslim, I am disgusted, sad and disappointed that an act of terrorism has once again been carried out in the name of Islam.

None of the major recognised religions, including Islam, teaches its followers to kill, hurt or threaten others, and to justify such acts as being for their faith.

In Singapore, our Government and community organisations have various programmes to promote racial and religious tolerance and harmony.

Being a small nation, we should always take a firm stand against any form of racial and religious tensions or acts of hatred.

We should send a strong signal to radical groups that their threats will not work in our country, and that the law will deal with them harshly.
