AS A Muslim, I join our community and the rest of the world in condemning the current situation in Yemen and several other parts of the Arab-Muslim countries (“Shanmugam appeals to S’poreans to leave Yemen”; April 16). I also feel sad at the worsening situation there.
I urge the families and friends of fellow Singaporeans who are still reluctant to leave the affected areas to evacuate immediately, so as not to further risk their safety.
I also hope that our Muslim authorities and community, in particular, the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (Muis) and the local mosques, conduct special prayers for the safety of Singaporeans who are in those conflict areas.
