Issue being discussed here is that 16 year old boy, Amos Yee, posted a video on YouTube named " Lee Kuan Yew is finally dead ". The video went viral. He was then brought to court and was charged with 3 offences of He being disrespectful towards the late Mr Lee and the Christians. His father apologized to Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on behalf of his son.
I find that Amos Yee is being very disrespectful. He should have never insulted the founding father of our nation, Mr Lee Kuan Yew. He gave up his life for us to build the nation. We could say that without him, Singapore will not be where we are now and still be a fishing village rather than a first world country now.These actions from him is very undesirable. We could have trace back to the past. Without Mr Lee's hard work and contribution, Amos Lee would not have such a skilled ways of speaking, Amos Lee is being very unappreciative. He compared Mr Lee to Jesus and made very insulting comments, also offending the christian religion. One should never insult others religion, particularly in mixed Singapore, where we are a patchwork of different religions ans races, where this could once again spark riots like the bloody ones in the 1960s. No matter which religion we are in, we should always respect other religions too. Even if Amos Yee was an atheist, he should have never made rude comments on God and Christianity.this act of disrespect will have dire consequences. Firstly, he will be sued and jailed. Secondly, his education and future will be affected. Thirdly, this will bring disgrace to his parents and his family. His parents will be most disappointed and hurt by him. Amos should learn to think before he speaks. He does not show even an iota respectful or chastised when leaving the court. He is still smiling and waving to the cameras. I sincerely hope that he will reflect upon his actions and that his punishment will teach him a good lesson.
