The difference between SDP and PAP on Malay issues
PAP wants to isolate the Malay-Muslim community from the rest of Singapore while the SDP wants to integrate our Malay sisters and brothers into mainstream Singaporean society.
The PAP's stance is clearly demonstrated in Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong's remarks that the Government does not want Malays "venturing into civil society issues which are not primarily to do with the Malay-Muslim community".
He was responding to the Association of Muslim Professionals (AMP) desire to re-position Malay-Muslim organisations into groups that "engage a national, inter-ethnic, issue-oriented agenda".
The above article from SDP appears to be an opportunistic swipe at PAP. It appears that SDP is trying to "teach" PAP how to win Malay votes. But there lies the problem. It appears that SDP doesn't know the Malay ground either.
Incidentally, last week, I also published an article in this blog pertaining to the above AMP related incident. PM Lee twists AMP's arm - thou shalt not compete against thy govt
Homosexuality and Lesbianism a no-no in Islam -
The majority of Malays are Muslim. In Islam, homo is a sin. No bargaining, no negotiating. A Muslim can be a homo. He is considered a sinner. Just like a Muslim can be a drug addict, a gambler, a womanizer or alcoholic. He is considered a sinner.
It is known that SDP is gay friendly. It is also known that SDP has been used as a platform to forward the gay agenda. If SDP truly is serious in capturing the Malay votes, who make up mainly of Muslims, it has to be aware of the Muslim sensitivities. No gay agenda.
Here are some of my past posts showing how SDP subtly pushes the gay agenda.

There is a perceived LGBT vs Christian rift, no thanks to the erroneous idea portrayed by LGBTs that a small group of Christians are homophobes and they are out to make life difficult for gays. This was especially true when LGBTs went in a frenzy with their Christian bashing against Thio Li Ann and Josie in the S377A repeal case and AWARE saga respectively.
Unknown the the gay and pro-gay community, the biggest silent disapprovers of gay promotion are the Malay-Muslims. It is just that the Malay community is a quiet and docile lot. That doesn't mean they approve LGBT ideas. The SDP, if truly wants to win the Malay votes, will have to take a real hard relook at its gay policies.
I am not a Malay. But I am a Muslim. As a Muslim, I can safely say that the majority of Muslims, when it comes to how LGBT issues are handled, will rather choose PAP than SDP.
