2013 Little India riot - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

2013 Little India riot

2013 Little India riot Date 8 December 2013 Location Little India, Singapore Causes Traffic accident Methods Rioting Parties to the civil conflict Lead figures Casualties Injuries 27 Arrested 40 Charged 31 The 2013 Little India riot occurred on 8 December 2013 after a fatal accident occurred at SST 21:23 at the junction of Race Course Road and Hampshire Road in Little India, Singapore, causing angry mobs of passersby to attack the bus involved and emergency vehicles that had by then arrived at the location.

Chen Hao Wei's insight:

In Singapore, we are multi racial and I think they should not have started the attack even though it is a chinese driver who knocked down a indian man. Even if so, the Chinese driver will be a full responsibility and they should not start attacking and start a riot leading to worsen conflict. They should have helped out instead of starting a riot.

Mali's conflict and a 'war over skin colour'

Afua Hirsch: Many Tuaregs have fled Mali after a split along colour lines. But will the factions unite against an Islamic state?
Chen Hao Wei's insight:

Racism is the core of conflict. I think the two races should know one another better to resolve but they cannot as their skin colour was different. I think that fairness is the most important to ensure that racism should not occur.

Chen Hao Wei's insight:

In racism, not only skin colour would be the cause of conflict, but religion too. I think that we should accept each other's different religion and beliefs. They should know their difference and not to start a conflict between their religion as they live in the same country.

Justin Ng Jie Ern's curator insight, July 14, 2014 10:14 AM

There are many types of prejudice.  There are racial conflicts and there are also religious conflicts. But all this prejudice and conflicts are all caused by one problem, and that is that people do not want to understand and accept one another for who he or she is. I feel that the only way to stop all these prejudice is to acknowledge the differences between each other.
