Rioters Sling a Singaporean Spring Revolution Print E-mail

Indian rioters are ignoring Gandhi's non-violent philosophy by sparking riots on the streets of Singapore.

According to Reuters, "A crowd of around 400 people set fire to vehicles and clashed with police in the Indian district of Singapore late on Sunday after a man was hit and killed by a bus, the first major riot in the city-state for more than 40 years."

They contend that only through violence can they achieve victory as Indians seek to implement US President Barack Obama's 'Share the Wealth' economic justice activism.

As reported by Reuters, "Police said they had arrested 27 suspects after the riot, which started after a private bus hit and killed a 33-year-old Indian national in the Little India area."

Nonetheless, Singapore Police Force Commissioner Ng Joo Hee disclosed to the public that no Singapore citizens were allegedly involved in the rioting to spark a 'Singapore Spring.'
