Difficult to understand why Defense Minister did not attend late CPL Fahrurrazi’s funeral

Posted by temasektimes on August 18, 2012

When the Brunei’s chopper crashed recently….the Brunei Sultan was everywhere consoling and give comfort to the deceased family ( crash site, hospital and funeral ). When we saw in the news, we were touched by the sultan’s care and concern!

We, too, find it difficult to understand why as a defence minister did not attend the funeral thus just send a condolence letter to the deceased family.

There are questions that are unexplained between a true son of Singapore and China-born players of Singapore where MPs, ministers and DPM of Singapore welcome them back from the airport with open arms, flowers and bear hugs for them! Singaporeans dun ask for much but a little action of console and comfort from a Minister shows he cares!! But he did not….

If only the late Goh Keng Swee is alive….I bet he will be the 1st man to embrace the deceased family and he will felt sorry! RIP, dearest soldier Fahrurrazi! We miss you much!!

    Because he is a Malay muslim. Mr, LEE KUAN YEW WOULD HAVE ATTENDED AS HE IS A STATESMAN NOT THIS NEW GENERATION OF SO CALLED LEADERS.

    Pse lets not lionize GKS. The current cabinet are the natural result of GKS’s policies.

    He was part of LKY’s cabinet and is responsible for the ruling party’s ethos. He created the most powerful conditioning engine in Spore -NS and in camp training – which keeps the average chinese Sporean male docile and fearful of our neighbours.

    The deceased was a Malay. If he was a China born serving his NS, the Defence Minister and his circus would be there to moan his loss.

    IF IT IS A WHITE HORSE CASUALTY, THEN HE WILL TURN UP AT THE HOSPITAL OR AT THE FUNERAL PARLOR.
    EVERYONE OF OUR CITIZENS THAT IS SERVING THE NATION OR HAVE SERVED THE NATION DESERVED OUR FULLEST
    SUPPORT IN THEIR HOUR OF NEED.
    WHAT THE MINISTER DID NOT DO IS TOTALLY A DISGRACE TO US.

    Because he is not PRC and not a millionaire like Ma Chi.

    When a PRC crashed his car into a taxi driven by a Singaporean, our beloved PM wrote in his Facebook expressing condolences. When two PRC construction workers were buried alive when one of the construction site collapsed, our beloved PM once again wrote in his Facebook expressing his condolences to the PRCs. How come, when a Singapore son die when serving the nation, the silence from our beloved PM is so conspicuous?

      … he is busy preparing his national day rally speech to impress everyone,
      so he forget the human touch. All his administrators are in full force to
      ‘beautify’ his speech. So, they have no time to post other issues .. Haha

    Simple…..in the eyes of the MIW, all NS slaves are expendable and not worth a piece of shit. We all know the amount of compensation paid to the families of NS slaves who have died over the past years is a pittance. They even have the nerve to tell us that it is the soldier’s responsibility to buy his own insurance and push their liability back to us. To them, it is simply ‘You die, your business.’

    Not that difficult to understand unless you are from the naive and daft 60.1%.

    • Ah Beng said

      We have not heard a word of comfort from anyone in the cabinet.

      The really sickening thing here is that this malay boy died for an army which does not trust his kind to work in places where the security clearance is high. He gave his life for a system which discriminates against his race.

    • mahbok tan said

      Yes , i think NS means,National Slavess ,thats why we should call ourselves “sinkies” instead of SGporean.

  10. Jack said

    It just showed it is worth a lot more to bring medals to Singapore than defending the country

  11. Singaporean said

    Why should they attend to a dog’s funeral. You die your business.

  12. Utter Rubbish said

    He’s too busy asking “what do u think” and terrorizing school children who don’t like him..

  13. Chicken Poop for Your Soul said

    “If only the late Goh Keng Swee is alive….I bet he will be the 1st man to embrace the deceased family and he will felt sorry!”

    I wonder what gave you that idea. Do you feel so unloved you need to fantasize about dead PAP politicians? Goh Keng Swee was a cold hearted man. There was nothing he found more disgusting than sentimental mushy acts like hugging and weeping, especially when the acts involved inconsequential lowlifes he didn’t know and didn’t care.

    You are confusing Goh Keng Swee’s life story with the feel-good shit in Chicken Soup for the Soul.

  14. My sincere condolence to Cpl Muhammad family; especially during this period of Ramadan and Hari Raya. It is indeed painful to witness such tragedy of our young fellow Singaporeans.

  15. NaBey said

    7th month, not auspicious to attend funeral!!! if his Father or Mother Die also the same, cannot go hospital and cannot attend funeral !!!

  16. Pai Sei said

    What do u think, DPM?

  17. Anthony Ng said

    What’s the big deal
    Accident happened in every arm forces

  18. Walter said

    He must be afraid and embarrassed to attend. The Minister must have already gotten a “heads up” from MINDEF that it was negligent and thus responsible for the death of Fahrurrazi.

  19. Lim said

    Because true blood locally born sporeans r considered the lowest form of citizen in spore now.

    Foreign Talent New Citizens who can win medals or contribute to GDP of Singapore r given the best treatment available in spore.

    Don’t complain too much , if possible we can consider migrate to other countries n be their 2nd class citizens. At least better than staying at spore being the lowest grade citizen

  20. dog of the dogs said

    To a Singaporean ; Can you don’t do NS ? Do a minister need to waste his time on someone who got no choice but has to fulfil his obligation ? You not happy, SO WHAT ?

  21. stevenadosan said

    That’s the true color of our so-called minister! Now we know that our ministers were interested in their high salary only.Other than spewing rubbish after rubbish, don’t expect them to be people oriented!

  22. Alvin said

    Another case of a fair weather minister making their rounds. If it is hard and requires some actual human interaction and emotion, don’t expect them to be around. How do they expect to listen or know about the real voice of the people when all they want to hear are good things and good news?

  23. Invictus said

    Also where’s our Minster of Muslim Affair Dr Yacoob. Only interest to attend baby kissing events or is he just too busy trying to implement his Code Of Conduct for the Internet. If so, perhaps he should just relinquish his post because i for one don’t consider him as my Malay representative

  24. Rajan said

    Has there ever been a precedent in Singapore?

  25. David Ong said

    I have never noticed any Minister of Defence of Singapore attending the death of any National Serviceman in the last 40 odd years of national service. Even the late Goh Keng Swee do not attend death of an NSMan. I know that in the first 5 years of NS the compensation for death of an NSman is almost an insult to the Family that a few of the families gave the compensation to charity or not bother to receive it from the government.

    We are nobody now in singapore.U must be rich.

  27. Defense Moneyster said

    Too busy entertaining Xiaxiu ?

  28. bootlace said

    When floods occured, they too were nowhere to be seen. Its as if their offices
    were 500km away. Its their attitude and arrogant ways, period.

  29. cc chia said

    Our PAP ministers and civil servants are too busy living in their ivory towers with their head in the clouds to be bothered with NS slaves and peasants. Jobs and benefits are for FTs and elites. while NS is for the Singaporean peasants. We die it’s our problem.

    The only time you will get to easily meet our PAP ministers is just before the G.E. when they try to get our votes.
    Please remember to vote wisely at the next G.E. in 2016.

    a young sg live is loss in the hand of our defense force.
    a young son is loss to a family.
    to papa, how would u feel if your own son is loss?

  31. Overseas Singaporean said

    Karma is a bitch. I believe those assholes will get their just deserts very soon.

  32. minister has more important thing to do said

    minister has more important thing to do

    minister should spend time on more important thing and not just attending the funeral, he can delegate to someone to attend!

  33. Heart said

    Attend with a heart! If he has no heart to attend, why be a hypocrite?

  34. This is obviously a conspiracy. The LCP may have stumbled onto something not meant for his eyes and the top brass instructed someone in the convoy to kill him.

  35. Tan Yan Ren said

    Singaporeans,
    Being spontaneous and having a genuine heart or real care for people in general is something many lacked in our present leadership…at least many of them dont really care SINCERELY.You can tell by the words and actions….they dont lie…at least after a while the fake attitude shows…..i made my point…..

  36. Cheong said

    Malays are natives of Singapore under article 152 . PAP does not give a hoot about natives Malays , if he was a PRC born and served you can be rest assured DPM PM all will attend! Fact that LKY publicly raised concerns on Malay higher birthrate shows blunt xenophobia. Malays are quite and lately has shown their worth in academics ( President Scholars , LKY gold award etc) and even in military. But don’t let them realise and say enough is enough- when natives run amok PAP can say bye bye . The pledge is not taken seriously and I am so ashamed, so ashamed!

  37. Tan Yan Ren said

    Loyalty , love and pride are all mashed into one……EITHER YOU HAVE IT OR DONT or JUST FAKING….any FOOL can tell a million miles away……just like those who called Singaporean’s opinions …NOISE!!!…it means the guy who uttered that word thinks you are an idiot and empty barrel making a lot of noise ,and NOT WORTH his TIME……..AMEN!!!!

  38. Wayang Armed Forces said

    MINDEF will its billion dollars budget every year can’t even set up a place to honour and remember those NS men who have died for the country.

    All the talk about people being the heartware of the 3G army is just bull….the hearts of those in charge are black to begin with.

  39. Richard said

    If is a new citizen all the minister maybe there as early as they can.

    Many post here incite racial disharmony. Pls read and exercise your mind carefully.

  41. Henry said

    Aiya … he is thinking “Oops! I missed my KPI … there goes my bonus …. damn”

  42. Cheong said

    True lol

  43. Cheong said

    I am ready to push those PRCs and Pinoys back to their country where they belong- if that is inciting racial disharmony? I am guilty of it. Some of us can’t handle the truth
