This is not a religious issue. It is about equality before the law.
The desire to be treated equally before the law is imbedded in every human soul. It is a universal yearning.
Even our Constitution refers to the inalienable right of every citizen to equal treatment on all fronts regardless of race, language and religion.
And therefore PAP leaders should strive to be more understanding of the passions underlying the tudung issue and other issues such as the discrimination in the military services.
The Malays have been very patient and understanding towards the PAP in the last 50 years.
Do not make us wait for another 50 years before making the National Pledge a reality to all Singaporeans – please.
