Are all POFMA instances mere coincidences, as the minister claims?

“If it so happens that some of the people involved are politically affiliated, that’s just the consequence of their actions.” – S Iswaran, Minister for Communication and Information.

4 POFMA directives have been issued thus far, since POFMA came into effect on 2 October 2019. 3 of the 4 directives were issued to opposition parties or their members, and the 4th issued to a website critical of the government and PAP.

Are all these mere coincidences, as the minister claims? What about other incidences, where statements and allegations against ministers were made, but which have thus far received no action from the government?

On 7 December 2019, 3 weeks after POFMA came into effect, the Facebook page Singaporeans Defending Marriage & Family posted a scathing and shocking accusation against the Ministry of Education and its Senior Minister of State for Education, Indranee Rajah: “Minister Indranee Rajah has announced MOE permits LGBT speakers/ performers and homosexual activists into institutions of higher learning to indoctrinate and corrupt children and youths.”

Read that post again.

It is surprising that neither the government nor Ms Indranee herself has responded to the post and the dangerous allegations made against her. No POFMA directive was issued to the page.

And since no such directive was issued to the page, should anyone assume that the allegation is true – that Ms Indranee did “announce” that “MOE permits LGBT speakers/ performers and homosexual activists into institutions of higher learning to indoctrinate and corrupt children and youths”?

So, Singaporeans should ask the ministers, such as Mr Iswaran, how POFMA is used, and whether it is really just a “coincidence” that only opposition members and government critics have been the targets of POFMA directives so far.

Or whether the use of POFMA, as some had expressed concern about, is biased and politically motivated.

  • opposition dude:

    The minister can say it’s mere coincidence but come on now, we weren’t born yesterday.

    2 things can happen from now. The first is that PAP continues invoking POFMA on whoever they like, specifically opposition members and then people who are critical of them.

    The second is that it won’t be used so aggressively anymore after all the negativity. They were very triggerhappy about it and it showed since 4 were issued in less than 2 months.

    If it’s going to be used frequently then when the next time it’s asked about again in parliament then no minister can use the coincidence excuse anymore.

  • Uncle Lim:

    Supreme Leeder once declared that he had to fix the opposition if not he could not govern properly.

    His sycophantic Ministers are kissing his arse by doing exactly that.

    Their expectations are promotions and bigger bonuses when the time comes.

    I’m voting against PAP.

    It’s just a coincidence.

  • pap human rubber stamps:

    many UNMO IBs said Dr Mahatir no chance to topple najib UMNO.

    then came GE14 and DR Mahatir toppled najib UMNO.

    najib and wife are now rightly being indicted for their S$m wrongs.

    so the same is happening in Spore.

    many pap PA paid IBs say Dr Tan CB no chance to topple clown pap.

    soon GE2020 shall come and Dr Tan CB shall topple clown pap.

    pap clown and wife and their S$m gang shall then be indicted for their S$m wrongs just like najib and wife.

    pap PA paid IBs also say pap clown will send in the army. we say, ffff, who is the army? every male above 21 in Singapore is army trained. it is not so easy to BS in such situations.

    Exam smart but with poor analytical and communication skills. Can Singaporeans think? If yes then why “Thinking Schools, Learning Nation”.

  • Greed:

    Dear Minister,
    The moment you mentioned the word ” Co-incidence”, it goes to show how obliging you are towards your party and blind allegiance to Pinky. Ministers and MPs have all lost their conscience to earn taxpayers money to be Yes-man to your Superior, by going against principles and people wishes.

    Bad Karma will visit all parasites who earn on taxpayer money and doing such bad betrayal acts against the people who voted all of you.
