Picture A: Debating the tudung issue in Parliament
Picture B: Imam Nalla apologies
Picture A: Many who commented on Facebook didn't think Faisal was wrong. I prefer another test. Is that an act of risking bridges that have been built between Muslims and the rest or at least taking us nearer that point? We can make this a philosophical, practical or even complex issue. The most important is the question of what it might do to the bridges already there.
Picture B: That is clearly building bridges. If Faisal turned out to be wrong since nobody can stop him from talking about tudung or any seemingly sensitive race and religion issues in parliament, can we repair the damage? After all that was the mistake Iman Nalla made and the end has been much better than the beginning because the bridge he shook has become a much stronger than the original bridge.
Singaporeans must decide and leaders must make a Plan B in case public opinion is wrong.
