Religious institutions should remain welcoming and open, not turn into ‘fortresses’: Shanmugam

Story link

SINGAPORE – Places of worship should not be turned into fortresses but remain welcoming and open, Law and Home Affairs Minister K. Shanmugam said on Thursday (Jan 28) as he called on the wider community to instead counter radical ideologies by educating young people against far-right extremism.

I read this first par and I wondered if he used the word fortress metaphorically at first especially when the context is ‘to INSTEAD counter radical ideologies…’

As for the question about asked if he will be tried in open court…it merely shows the ignorance of the journalist about the ISA.
