STATEMENT FROM THE HUMANIST SOCIETY (SINGAPORE):
Singapore’s founding Prime Minister Mr Lee Kuan Yew has passed away this morning at the age of 91.
Throughout his years of public service, including as Prime Minister from 1959-1990, Mr Lee and his team worked to create a safe and prosperous country. Mr Lee recognised the importance of secularism in a muliti-religious society, to balance competing interests so that no group is systematically favoured over another.
Our Society expresses our condolescences to Mr Lee’s family. We will remember his service to Singapore.
