Mohd Khair: S377A Not Appropriate Bargaining Chip For Tudung Issue

By the way, the gay or lgbt issue in Singapore is a concern NOT only of the Muslim community. It is also a matter of concern among Christians, Catholics and other groups.

In fact, way before Muslims in Singapore made their concerns more public, the Christians and Catholics have been more vocal on the issue. So, as a Muslim, I’m not sure how the tudung issue has now become part of the bargaining chip to ward off lgbt pressures to scrap Section 377A of the Penal Code in Singapore.

I can’t understand the logic of the argument that by allowing Muslim women to don the tudung, the government will also be obliged to scrap Section 377A of the Penal Code.

All the while I thought the reason as to why the Government is not willing to do away with Section 377A is due to the fact that the MAJORITY of Singaporeans are still very conservative. Hence, it is surprising that tudung is now implicated.
