I do not understand why Tudung is such a difficult issue.
I believe most Chinese like me are used to seeing our fellow Malay ladies wearing Tudung in our lives, in our working places and on the streets or neighbourhood.
It is nothing intimidating at all and it should be a proud Heritage of our multi ethnicity and culture. Local born Singaporeans do not feel uneasy with Tudung ladies because we understand and respect their dress code. This is nothing special just like seeing our fellow Sikh brothers wearing turbans.
So stop talking about difficulties or social acceptance of such. If private sectors have no problem about tudung why should the Government has any problem with that?
