- Not to take the peace in Singapore for granted.
- There are many similarities across the different religions.
- We can all contribute, make a difference and do our part to ensure the peace and stability of Singapore.
There have been occasions when our social cohesion and harmony have been tested. At the start of the second gallery, we learnt from a video about how and why the Maria Hertogh Riot in 1950 started, and the violence and destruction caused. This shows that sensitivity of religious issues can post a potential threat of violence and destruction to Singapore.
Do you know that many places of worship of the different religions can be situated very close to each other.
If you brought your children along to this gallery, do pick up a student activity book where the kids can jot down their thoughts and complete the tasks as they move along the exhibits. Natalie learnt that just on Telok Ayer Street alone, you can find a mosque, a chinese temple, a muslim hertiage centre and a church.
