Use your mobile phones during Lee Kuan Yew’s state funeral procession and risk disrespecting his legacy

Posted on 28 March 2015

Public advised to stand still with hands on their sides and feet slightly apart while holding their breaths.


Singaporeans from all walks of life who respect Lee Kuan Yew, are requested to put their mobiles phones away during this Sunday’s state funeral procession.

A Facebook post has been going around chastising Singaporeans who sullied Lee Kuan Yew’s legacy and good name when they seen using their phones during the gun carriage procession on Wednesday, March 21, 2015.


Yong Dian Hua, a Singaporean, who believes mobile phones are the dealings of heretics, said: “If you use your phones while Lee Kuan Yew’s body is passing by you this Sunday, you are a heretic who deserves to be a Malaysian.”

“This is utterly disrespectful as a human being.”

“A true blue Singaporean will put his hands by the side of his body like this, while keeping his feet slightly apart but narrower than shoulder width, while holding one’s breath.”

“Stomach in, chest out, like this.”

Other Singaporeans said they will police the streets and anyone caught using their mobile phones on Sunday will have their devices confiscated and data deleted.
