S’pore govt criticised for only coming up with law to protect Lee Kuan Yew’s name, image now

Posted on 23 May 2015

They should have implemented this a long time ago.


Singaporeans from all walks of life who worship Lee Kuan Yew have come out to strongly condemn the government.

This after the Government is finally coming up with a law to protect the name and image of founding Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew from commercial use and exploitation two months after his death in March 2015, aged 91.

One Singaporean, Mei Yew Yong, said he does not understand why the government had to take two months to come up with this proposal given that this is a government that supposedly has foresight: “This should have been implemented years ago. This is honestly the worst kind of ineptitude anyone can witness first-hand.”

“I can’t believe it took the Singapore government two whole months sitting on their laurels before coming up with this law. Shameful.”

Other Singaporeans who have proposed for Lee Kuan Yew to be recognised as a religion in Singapore have asked the current regime to step down.

Chao Yew Yu, a local, said: “Lee Kuan Yew would have fired the whole Cabinet personally for this slow rate of development.”

“It is obvious that the previous suggestion for Singapore to formally recognise Lee Kuan Yew as a religion have apparently fallen on deaf ears.”

“Slow and shameful.”

“Seriously, what must Singaporeans do so that the present government will start to recognise Lee Kuan Yew as a religion?”

At press time, other Singaporeans are calling for a law to make it mandatory for the collection of royalties for the Lee family’s estate each time “Lee Kuan Yew” or his likeness in any form is mentioned or cited in any medium.


Singapore needs a real religion:
