In Singapore, the media like to trumpet that English is a global
and elevate it to god-like status.
English is not a global language. It is the language of a nation which
projected its power globally. The global reach of English will depend
the power and influence of America. As these ebbs, so will the
English is a global language that should not be. A truly global
is one which does not belong to any nation or region. It is a language
created by all nations, belongs to none but accepted by all. Such is
truly global and universal language.
Having been in Singapore for more than a decade now, I cannot help but.
agree with you. The English language is a monopoly here and too
pervasive. In Continental Europe, which is much nearer to
UK than here, its Spanish for Spain, French for France, Italian for
German for Germany, etc,. not English for all, and never will be.
In my opinion, it is not purely for economic reasons. Otherwise, the
Chinese language should see a sharp rise in importance. I guess it has
do with the fact that the most powerful and lasting politician here is
from the days of the British Empire.

Thank you all for sharing your unbiased and open views on Indians
living in Singapore. I believe the great discussions that y'all are
having amongst yourselves are best confined to s.c.singapore. You can
then extrapolate all you want amongst like-minded people. Fer
chrissakes, leave s.c.indian out of it. Thanks
We are talking about Global Indians so India's Indians are included.
The media want us to believe that mixed marriage is another
manifestation of tolerance in our multiracial multicultural society.
The truth is far from it. It degrades our society and worsens race
relationship. It is not a random mix. It has biases. Let's look at
the various combinationss generally, bearing in mind that there will
always be exceptions.
In the case of European-Asian, it is almost always male European,
female Asian. The age difference will be like that of a father and
daughter, sometimes even like grandfather and grand-daughter. In some
cases, it could well be paedophiles at work where the marriage is just
a mask. Whatever, the new family will be westernised.
In the case of the mixed marriages between the three major races, it
is mostly dark-skinned non-Chinese male with fair-skinned Chinese
female. Asian culture is male-dominated where women are expected to
follow men. If it is Malay male with Chinese female, the woman will
become Muslim; so too the off-springs.. If it is Indian male with
Chinese female, the woman will become Indian Hindu; so too the off-
springs. In both cases, it is win-win for the non-Chinese. They may
all be speaking English but the racial factor is still there. The ex-
sprinter Kunalan's family is a good example.
Mixed marriage is a means to racial domination, not racial tolerance.
The only reason it is acceptable to the non-Chinese is because it is a
nett gain for their races.
The media here is really pro-Indian. The Indians cannot be faulted on
anything. If they are, the media will jump to their defence. When
statistics are quoted to show that Indians are going en-masse over to
the US, the media here will scout the world until it spots one Indian
woman on TV saying that she and her daughter choose not to settle in
the US despite being given the chance. Indians will want to get the
hell of the that hellhole called India. This is an undeniable fact.
Its regional neighbors like Singapore should be wary of the Indian
You are right. The English language media.. especially those controlled
by Indians, will readily jump to the defence of Indians or whatever
Indians do. To add crdibility, they would use non-Indians to do their
work for them.
Following the condemnation of the Global Indian Diaspora conference,
there was an article written by a Malay Nazry Bahrawi titled "Let's
celebrate the Diaspora". Writing from Scotland where he is currently
on a scholarship, and using the Scots as an example, he believes that
it is good to have a diaspora and there should be a Singapore
'Diaspora' is derived from the word disperse. Dispersion is dilution,
spreading out thin, not enough concentration in numbers to make an
impact, resulting in victimization. No nationality, race or religion
would voluntarily disperse themselves. The Jews Diaspora came about
because they were banished from their homeland by the Romans. The
Scot's came about because their land were conquered by the English.
The Chinese's came about after great social upheaval because of
westerner's invasion of their land. The Indian's is a different
phenomenon. It came about because of uncontrolled breeding so much so
that the resources within their national boundary is insufficient to
If the Indians or Malays think diaspora is good, let them disperse
themselves voluntarily from Singapore. Good idea. Good riddance. Come
on, Indians, this defence posture make you all look like fools. Try
Law Minister Shanmugam is speaking out for foreign workers. For
obvious reason. They are mostly Indians. The central issue concerning
foreign workers and foreign talents is not whether our country needs
them. The central issue is whether their recruitments are based on
Why are the foreign workers mainly from South Asia, in particular,
India? The countries of South Asia is not well known for their
infrastructures. In fact they are better known for their backwardness
in this area. Where is the merit of their workers in the construction
industry? Today, China is well-known for having rebuilt the whole
country within a short-span of 30 years. Chinese workers have
definitely proven themselves in the construction field. Their skill
and experience cannot be doubted. But its Indian workers everywhere we
Why are the foreign talents recruited in the industries mainly from
India? China is a more advanced industrial nation than India. There
are many more industrial talents in China than India. They are being
missed out because of the English language. Many talented Chinese with
good qualifications are working below their capability in Singapore
all because of their lack of proficiency in the English language. This
is a great loss to Singapore. This is not meritocracy, it is plainly
I would venture to say this is reverse racism, favoring the minority
race over the majority race. This could be in response to the minority
Indians here being vocal about being the victim of racism. The Indians
here have been appeased so much that they now believe that the
majority Chinese are afraid of them. This is even affecting global
politics. America is always looking for other countries to form
coalitions to deal with China. Looking at Singapore, it finds the
answer i.e. the Indians can deal with the Chinese. That is why the US
is roping in India to deal with China.
There have been many calls for our Ministers to resign. They are
always Chinese. With the financial crisis hitting us and resulting in
losses to investors, why is there no call for the Indians chieftains
such as Tharman and Dhanabalan to resign? It again confirms the snaky
anti-Chinese racism existing in the country.
Now 900 of DBS staff is going to be retrenched. The one person
directly responsible for the poor performance of the bank is that CEO.
He should be the first one on the retrenchment list. This says a lot
about our choice of foreign talents. It is because this chap is from
the West that DBS is more heavily involved in the financial crisis
which started from the West. He introduced the debt problems of the
West to the bank. The same can be said about OCBC. The only local bank
not run by foreign talents, UOB, is least exposed to the crisis and it
is now a better market performance than the other two. Its share price
is now the top of the three local banks. Singapore has to re-examine
its faith on foreign talents.
The truth is that the foreign talents policy, like the cosmopolitan
city policy, do not have the nation's economy in mind. They are more

Agree. When an Indian is in charge, like that Dumb Dhanabalan, non-
Chinese, especially another Indian, will be the first choice for any
high post. Dumb Dhanabalan, rather than Ho Ching, should resign. He
should be held more accountable for the losses of Temasek. His choice
of Ho Ching's replacement is revealing his racial bias. It is not
based on merit but ethnicity. The present crisis is started by the
westerners. Anyone from the west, including Asians who have worked
through the systems there, should not be allowed to run an Asian
financial institution because these people have rotten sense of values
and rotten set of skills which have caused financial institutions to
rot as have now been manifested back in their home countries in the
Indians are allowed to get away with crimes or getting too light
sentences for them.
There was this case of an Indian teacher caught changing the answer
scripts of Indian students in an examination to help them pass. What
happen to the case now?
There was this Indian teenager who molested about 20 victims but was
let off to go to India to meditate. What follows from this? He could
be back in Singapore.
There was this other Indian "Yisun terror" who molested many Chinese
girls but got a light sentence.
There was this case of Gopalan Nair who called a judge a prostitute.
For this, he only got a few months in jail.
Indians are really chauvinists and racists. They insentisitively stamp
their culture on other peoples' forehead with the puttu. This is what
happen to our Malay Muslim MPs. The puttu is un-Islamic. It has no
place on the forehead of a Muslim. Has anyone seen an Indian MP
accepting non-Indian or non-Hindu culture in any way? Even for a non-
ethnic event such as the Young PAP conference, half-Indian like that
Dr. Bloodyshitnan was in Indian garb. Someone had reminded him that it
was a PAP, not BJP, conference
That anti-Chinese racist Dr. Bloodyshitnan is leading some activities,
like walking, to promote racial harmony. A racist like him should be
the last person to lead such activities. He is only concerned about de-
Sinicising but Indianising Singapore. No amount of talking, walking or
running activities led by him will achieve racial harmony in
Singapore. Sacking him from his ministerial post will.
This Indian Virdi Bhupinder who acquires his Singapore citizenship
just a couple of months ago is spewing anti-Chinese racism because he
can't get a job. Typical snaky Indian racist. He has written to the
TODAY newspaper, complaining that potential employers are asking "What
is your race", "Can you speak Mandarin for a frontline job", etc. As
usual, that Indian-run paper is putting it in bold print. Indians are
always given prominent space in that paper, for whatever rubbish they
This chap is a typical snaky Indian racist. When he can't compete for
a job, he blames it on racial discrimination and professes that he
does not believe in racial identity. On the other hand, he would be
dead set against reducing the hours of TV program in Vasantham. He
chooses to ignore that his fellow Indian Senior Minister of State
Balaji Sadasivan has publicly stated that the Indian race can be
This Virdi Bhupinder is typical of new Indian immigrants. They refuse
to accept that Singapore is a multi-racial nation with a substantial
Chinese majority. The trouble is that more of them are coming here.
The proportion of Indians in the population is now about 10%; and
increasing exponentially. With racists Indians like the Dr.
Bloodyshitnan as Minister and S R Nathan as President, this trend will
It is time the Chinese majority in Singapore wake up. We should insist
that new immigrants be able to speak in Mandarin, at least, before
being accepted as citizens.
The majority Chinese in Singapore is not re-producing enough. The
fault lies with government policies. Despite being the majority, the
status of the Chinese here is pathetic. They are not in control of
their own destiny. The Chinese language has disappeared off the
streets, off local TV programs and almost everywhere. Where do Chinese
parents get the chance to know their own language? How then will they
be able to speak to their children at home in Mandarin? Following the
language, the physical existence of the Chinese is being threatened.
Measures are being taken to deny the existence of a Chinese majority
in Singapore as is shown by the posters put up in the media and in
public places. This is especially obvious when international events
are held in Singapore. This symbolic ethnic cleansing of the Chinese
is a harbinger of the worse to come i.e. physical ethnic cleansing.
Chinese in Singapore is about to end up like those in Indonesia.
Singapore is not cosmopolitan or international or global. It is merely
pseudo-westernised. It is not surprising that the local females prefer
the Caucasian males. Everyone has to speak the language of the
Caucasians. When the local females marry a Caucasian, they are
marrying up, marrying people whose language everyone speaks, marrying
the bosses rather than the sub-ordinates,. marrying someone they are
psyched to believe to be superior...
On top of this, vocal anti-Chinese minorities like the Indians are
increasing rapidly in numbers and acquiring more political power.
Indian like SR Nathan who is against Chinese speaking among themselves
in their own language in public has been President for two consecutive
terms now. Indian like that Dr. Bloodyshitnan who works hard to de-
sinicise Singapore has become a Minister.
Under the above conditions, how can Chinese in Singapore feel good
about themselves to want to propagate their race?
