Later don’t blame the gahmen…ok?
SINGAPORE: The Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (MUIS) said that it is ready to render assistance to the remaining Singaporean students in Yemen, and has sent an officer to Oman to support the Ministry of Foreign Affair’s (MFA) evacuation of 60 students.
In a news release on Tuesday (Apr 14), MUIS expressed deep concern about the ongoing armed conflict in Yemen, and said that the council has also been in contact with Singaporean students there.
“Our priority has always been the safety and well-being of our students, and their loved ones who are with them. We therefore urge them to leave while it is still possible to do so,” said Dr Mohd Fatris Bakaram, Mufti of Singapore.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with them in these troubled times, and we wish them a safe return to Singapore. We also pray for a swift resolution of the conflict and for peace to return to Yemen.”
