Episode 1 – Religious Motivation and Social Reality

Singapore is a secular state but up to 80% of the population profess to belong to a faith tradition. What role does faith play in a secular yet multi-religious society like Singapore? Can one compartmentalise one’s personal faith and social conduct in the public sphere? Is there a need to go beyond the silos of faith-based organisations and work towards an inter-religious approach in addressing some of society’s pressing problems like poverty, health and environmental issues? Professor Yaacob Ibrahim, Dr Kweh Soon Han and Venerable Dr. Juewei sheds some light.
