S’poreans thinking twice, increasingly convinced Little India riot did not happen

Posted on 20 March 2014

Public inquiry wears on, continues to reveal there is nothing wrong in Singapore.


Singaporeans from all walks of life, who have been paying close attention to the proceedings of the Little India riot public inquiry that started three weeks ago, are starting to think twice and questioning themselves.

They are asking themselves if there are really sufficient reasons to believe the Little India riot really even took place on Dec. 8, 2013.

Testimony given at the Committee of Inquiry convened to look for possible causes of the Little India riot have so far all been positive and underscored the fact that there is nothing wrong in Singapore and foreign workers have been feeling okay all along.

Witnesses ranging from foreign workers to governmental organisation personnel and authorities have given testimony so far.

They have said they didn’t think anything was wrong with the foreign workers, conditions in Singapore have been pleasant, wages are good, food is abundant and camaraderie among foreigners is keeping everyone alive and well.

One Singaporean, Jiang Zhen De, said: “Listening to all the witnesses give testimony saying everything is okay and how there is no problems in Singapore in the first place is really making me think twice about whether the Little India riot even happened.”

“Could the riot have been a mass hallucination in the first place then? Because since everything in Singapore is okay, then there is definitely no riot to begin with, right?”
