S’poreans demand to be punished if they said ‘Lee Kuan Yew’ without asking for govt’s permission

Posted on 17 March 2016

This will help protect Lee Kuan Yew’s name.


Singaporeans from all walks of life, who believe in higher authority, must write in to the government to ask for permission before they can say the words “Lee Kuan Yew” or even mention his name in day-to-day life.

This is to protect Lee Kuan Yew’s name from being too easily uttered as part of everyday conversation or as an expression, as it will cause his name to lose its value as it transitions from holy to ordinary parlance.

As such, anyone who wants to say “Lee Kuan Yew” in private or in public must first seek permission from the government via a written request for his name to be said in passing or during a foreseeable event in the near future and wait at least two weeks for approval to be given.

Only then, can they start to make preparations for “Lee Kuan Yew” to be said, while administrative charges with GST surcharge will apply.

Singaporeans who heard of this have applauded the measure.

One Singaporean, Shuo Hua said: “Please punish us because we are so careless with our tongues and lips.”

“Or else, it will devalue Lee Kuan Yew’s name as Singaporeans did not first prepare a ceremonial procession lasting seven days, fasting beforehand and kneeling down with head bowed for at least 24 hours, before ‘Lee Kuan Yew’ is said.”

“And this will also prevent online websites from writing unsubstantiated stupid articles about ‘Lee Kuan Yew’.”
