Singapore, June 8 : A senior executive of a Singapore-based software company was sentenced to three weeks in prison on Tuesday. This officer had made racist tweets in April last year in which he had condemned Indians and Indian diaspora regarding COVID-19. This was stated in a media report. According to the news of Channel News Asia, Zainal Abidin Shaiful Bahari has accepted two charges, including carrying out activities that harm harmony between different ethnic groups in Singapore. Two other similar charges were also considered at the time of sentencing.

Jennifer Marie said that race and religion are sensitive issues and people should be aware that reckless comments can break the social order.
