S’pore to cover Marina Bay Sands with black cloth ahead of Easter Sunday

Posted on 15 April 2017

The structure has been an affront to religions since 2010.


Marina Bay Sands, the three pillars that symbolise financial ruin and an affront to all religions in Singapore since 2010, will be covered with a gigantic black cloth ahead of Easter Sunday.

This is done to preserve the sanctity of the day and a reminder that Singapore is still a conservative and highly religious society with many competing beliefs.

One Singaporean, Qu Jiao Tang, said he looks forward to this concealment: “I hope MBS can be covered with a black cloth more often.”

“It is necessary as it has been a stain on Singapore’s conscience.”

Other Singaporeans said MBS’s existence has always been a reminder of Singapore’s reversal in policy and a show of the country’s vulnerability as it strives to maintain its economic superiority.

Another local, Kan Bu Dao, said: “Maybe it is better to cover it once a week.”

“Or even better, leave it on for one week in a month so the helicopter no need fly here, fly there.”
