Amos Yee has made an extremely provocative video with the intent of hurting the beliefs and sentiments of Muslims. The video is too vulgar to be shared with this post. We would probably get into trouble with the law if we did as well. But snippets from the video can be seen here: http://bit.ly/1VhKTjt.
If Amos had hoped to cause outrage among the Muslim community here with the video, judging from the comments found to the Facebook post, the exact opposite is happening.
They see him for who he is – an attention seeker.
The Muslims here do not view it as an attack from the Chinese majority.They pity the mother and don’t blame her upbringing for his waywardness.
They have reported Amos to the authorities instead of taking matters into their own hands.
And most importantly the Muslim community forgave him.
And since Amos’ performance was so bad in the video, one suggested he should read another ancient text instead.
Meanwhile the activists had an update form Amos’ mom.
