Ms Raeesah Khan apologises for comment made 2 years ago

Ms Raeesah Khan

My intention was never to cause any social division, but to raise awareness to minority concerns.

I apologise to any racial group or community who have been hurt by my comments. My remarks were insensitive, and I regret making them.

I feel passionate about minority issues, regardless of race, and in my passion, I made improper remarks, and I have to be accountable for them.

I will fully cooperate with police investigations.

    If the postings had been made in 2018, why bring this up now?? The PAP must have now realized that they are losing ground in this GE. The ground is vibrating for the opposition parties and so, resort to dirty tactics just like what they did to JBJ and Tang Liang Hong.

    Remember, what comes around goes around!

    I really won’t put too much hope on that. I heard that sheeps that produce cotton are especially daft and easily hoodwinked.

    @ General Custer

    PAPpypolitics and its tribal kind IS ENGAGING in gutter politics – voters can see that, With its apex all DIAM DIAM DIAM on the 10 MILLION population controversy of their own invention, construction and “koyok” selling of yet another “float balloon” politics (1% truth,99% lies, fantasy, propaganda AND undisclosed real position of fabricated tales mongering in public forum), voters must now feels a pulsating sense of desperation in PAPpypolitics.

    The 26 scholarly GRC-loving inductees, is found brain dead, louder than mute and deaf worst than earthworm of DIAM DIAM DIAM politics after publicly professed to take leadership caring of peasants. IT IS HARD TO COMPREHEND THEIR ACTION matched to the mouth words. Or maybe these are just farts of fiction.

    Meanwhile the POFMA PIMP is sending CORRECTION DIRECTIONS to more and more irritating voices on the 10 million population controversy – I guess to bury all the unpleasant noise and truths telling in the social media.

    PAPpypolitics is behaving like a sly puppy walking around with two d*cks – one is lies, the other is concealed truths.

    If voters still don’t wake up despite this rocking earthquake tremor, they deserves what they got of reward.

    They have never felt secure and that’s why they are more and more KIASU with each GE.

    While they may have feedback of ground sentiment, that may not be accurate.
    By virtue that this gang had to always resort to Jerry Mandarins proves they lack integrity. There is no limit how low it can go.

    MY POINT IS, ITS MORE LIKELY THEY ARE ALWAYS KIASU and not just normal Kia su but extreme most Kia su. Dishorable son says it all.

    Remember, EVERY of the Last 3 GE the ground sentiment was bad for PAP and strangely they won by landslides.

    So, your perception is likely as wrong as every last GE. This GE is sweetest for PAP and all incumbent govt of the world because of covid crisis.

    There is no need for Jerry Mandarins and low tactics. But someone his whole life relies on using extreme most unfair ways to get what he wants. It’s like asking a smoke addict not to smoke. He will rather die than not smoke.

  • Why bring it up now ?:

    This shows that some people here ( maybe many ? ) too young too simple.

    Last time i worked for a chinese boss ( local company ) for a few years . Along the way , one bound to make mistakes or say something wrong. Big mistakes tio screw, small mistake boss just smile never blow up and you feel the whole issue is brushed off or buried. Little does one know, the day he ask you to pack your bags and kick u out, as you fight and defend yourself. He take out his recording book, which day and time what mistake u make or words u comment wrongly , one by one he listed and bring it up. Unexpectedly U really totally caught off guard.

    This is old chinese culture or political tricks. Great Mao also use that to take revenge for his son’s death on Peng De Huai.

    If you want to get into politics, you better not have any skeletons in your closet.

    I am still amazed people in her age group, shoots their mouths off and just post anything they like on social media. Things do come back and haunt them.

    The Workers Party has made such a huge mistake by courting her for quite some time to join the party. She is an activist, her father was a Presidential candidate but didn’t win.

    To me, this has DAMAGED the Workers Party!!! Forget about winning Sengkang, just pray you can win Aljunied GRC.

  • The problem with being a snitch is that there will always be someone else snitching you from behind too.

    My unconfirmed sources told me that the 2 people who purportedly lodged the reports could be a certain Christopher and a certain Malik.

    If I remember correctly, Christopher and Malik are 2 very well-known personalities that would carry, lick and even suck balls to get the ‘correct attention’ and will die die vote for the party even if donkeys are fielded.

    Malik, if I remember correctly, was an active activist in the past, always crying father crying mother the party no good here and no good there. Apparently, one fine day he realised that crying father crying mother not a good hobby because always kenna tekan by the you-know-who. So he decided to switch sides.

    According to my sources, Malik even boasted on his Facebook page that it was he who sabo Ms Khan because he wanted the party to return with an overwhelming mandate.

    Not sure zoon or not, so its all her say she say at this moment in time.

    Dear Ms Raeesh Khan,

    I stand with you on what you had allegedly commented. As a Chinese and a victim of the emperor without clothes public declaration to “FIX” his critics, I know that there is some truth in what you say. You might like to look up the meaning of ‘mens rae’ which is Latin but is a legal term.

    I have described my experience even before your alleged posting is the subject of the Police Report.

    Quite unfortunately your wayang party then MPs just resort to the 3 monkey expressions of see no evil, hear no evil an speak no evil, except that the matter affects all of us and our future.

    @ TR techie

    I LIKE THE WAY RAEESAH KHAN wrote her considered thoughts – the opening line reads

    Raeesah Khan :My intention was never to cause any social division.

    JUST IN CASE any strange minds, anywhere, impute her race division “MOTIVE”, she can easily tear that apart with this retort-

    MY HEAD IS SITTING ON MY SHOULDER, NOT YOURS, how do you know what my mind thinks at the moment when I wrote that fb comments?

    Sure there is rule of law, WHAT ABOUT THE PROBITY OF LAW now?

    I did a lot of community welfare work from young, how could my allegedly “damaged” mind and untidy “motive” residing inside my head somehow did “encouraged and fostered” and still is, that community-collective sharing and assisting tireless efforts of all my leisure time and energy?

    Whilst I was in that, WHERE WERE YOU MONKEYS AND WHAT WERE YOU ALL DOING then?

    Raeesah Khan’s father was denied by handy underhand chicanery from participating i the presidential election.

    And she is very smart with her OPENING LINE of fb reflective thoughts.

    Raeesah Khan : My intention was never to cause any social division.

    What fart of fiction did she caused to WP? Here is my thoughts to share with you.

    Ah yes, in criminal offenses, the prosecution has to prove intention, which is very very difficult.

    With the exception of some offenses, mostly drug-related, if I am not wrong.

    >>Ah yes, in criminal offenses, the prosecution has to prove intention, which is very very difficult.<<

    The prosecution must prove that the alleged offender had a "guilty mind" in the offence he/she is being charged, BEYOND REASONABLE DOUBT.

    In the case of Ms Raeesah Khan her defence lawyer, if it comes to her being prosecuted, should focus on the first part of her comment which was "that Singapore law enforcement authorities discriminated against citizens". I am prepared to testify as her witness if required based on my own experience of not only being "discriminated against citizens".

    I just read that the Election Department has extended the voting time by 2 hours……..for what I would consider dubious reasons…………I am not sure how that's impacting on the citizens' right to comment on the anything pertaining to GE 2020, so I am restricting my comments on this thread.

    lky can anyhow say and get away with it?

    lky clown prints even lied about malay race president and selected INDIAN race president and get away with it?

    so if it is truth, and true, why abuse police report system to report on something 2 ffffing long years ago?

    POLICE is honest if police investigates motives of the two people who made the police report.

    WE are Chinese Christians. We have nothing against why the WP candidate said. We can provide our IC numbers and contact details to declare we are not offended at all.

    If we are not offended, where the ffff is any case by the two who made police reports, abusing the police report system?

    UNLESS of course if it is pap gutter politics. then, anything can happen lah, since INSIDE 200m is not WITHIN 200m.
