There is a limit to what you can say, says The Straits Times letter writer.

Singaporean Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew

I HAVE heard many disrespectful jokes and opinions regarding Mr Lee Kuan Yew over the past few weeks.

With his death, let all Singaporeans stop tolerating such disrespectful comments made against Mr Lee and take the individuals who make them to task, by raising the issue with the relevant authorities or the individuals’ respective professional or governing bodies.

There is a limit to freedom of expression.
