NUS Campus Crusade for Christ suspended while under police investigations
Posted by temasektimes on July 11, 2012
The posters, which were distributed on the campus to promote a mission trip to Thailand, described the country as ‘a place of little true job’ because few Thais believe in Jesus Christ and only “about one hundred Thais accept Christ each year’:
A similar gaffe was made on its NUS website where it promoted a mission trip to Turkey, saying that the country needed ‘much prayer and work’ because ‘much of the population is M’, referring to Muslims.
In a written reply to Parliament, Education Minister Heng Swee Keat said police investigations into the NUS Campus Crusade for Christ are ongoing.
“This incident reminds all of us not to take racial and religious harmony for granted, and that we must be sensitive and vigilant on matters of race and religion,” he said.
No arrests have been made so far.
