Read the Reed

How much it will cost to resolve problems in Singapore Muslim community without using spirituality as a tool?
I came to hear that MUIS, which is the state appointed authority to regulate Muslim affairs in Singapore, had recently at the very eleventh hour, pulled out crucial funding that it had all along promised the organizers of the recent 2006 Internationl Islamic Spirituality Conference in Singapore. I also came to hear from a Malay speaking friend that there were two Malay newspaper reports which mentioned that MUIS will not support activities on spirituality. I am not sure how accurate these are but they are prevalently spreading as news amongst the community.

The lack of communication between MUIS and the community have left many to wonder if MUIS had delibrately attempted to thwart the efforts to promote spirituality amongst Singapore Muslims.
