A Condolence ..............


The body of Singaporean lawyer Lo Hwei Yen was confirmed by her husband earlier today. She was found on the 19th floor of the Oberoi hotel which (I think) is west of Mumbai. At the time of writing 146 innocent civilians have been killed and about 337 wounded. Along with that images of blood trail, smoke from buildings and frenzied crowds splashed across the Internet and all possible media platform in presenting these atrocities.

It is indeed a dark day for all Singaporeans and humanity in general.

This is absurd. What did those 146 people do to deserve this?

Which sort of cowardice opens fire at innocent and unarmed civilians?

What sort of reaction were they hoping from?

No you are not mujahideen and far remote are you from that sacred recognition. In fact to even suggest that you deserve such description is obcene. You are murderers and animals - filthy and cowardly at that.

And why does The Straits Times refer to this group in its front page as "Islamist Group"? I suggest the editors please get an education or be more sensitive! Please refer to them as "terrorist group" - for I am very sure that no one in this country would ever recognize this group as Islamist or Muslims though however they would like to be remembered as such (for whatever reasons).

As for the rest of us: do we need any more reminders for the silent majority (if assuming they are Muslims in the first place or even if they are not it doesn't matter as Earth's citizen) to stand up?

It is a sad day and I am very disturbed right now.

Condolences to the family of Ms Lo Hwei Yen. God bless her soul deservedly.

A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment. I believe that you need to write more on this subject matter, it might not be a taboo matter but typically people don't talk about such topics. To the next! Cheers!!
