We all have our own fair share of cultural activities that contains some noise. From the weekly Malay weddings to the songs from Getai and Lion Dance. However, some of us have been receiving flak for our celebration that only happens once a year and one FT feels that it is justified.
The FT that goes by the name of Frank Sterpin on Facebook, feels that thaipusam is noisy and that the police are doing them a good deal by keeping the noise down. Just a reminder, drums from Thaipusam has been banned since the 1970s and there are talks about lifting the archaic ban that would deem racially insensitive.
The FT went on to indicate that he is a long term PR and has ‘no time for religious celebrations that disrupt the peace of the neighbourhood’. Some patriotic Singaporeans have tried to change his mind by reminding them that this is more of a give-or-take situation but he was not having any of it.
Would someone invite him to any Malay weddings or any performance, hopefully that would change his mind about how we feel about Singapore.
