To all who may be concerned:
It being me a deep concern to know that an disrespectful attitude towards
religion is openly conducted in Singapore.
The manner and the rational of such an act not only show utter disrespect to
the Buddhist community. Having the Buddha's associated to the an
organization of liquor-sell is the exact opposite and against one of the
basic tenets of Buddhist teachings. Furthermore having to display some of
images most sacred in the Buddhist tradition in a very disrespectful way is
not appropriate even to the extent of disgusting.
As a Buddhist, I strongly urge you to out an immediate stop in associating
Buddhist representation in your business.
I also call upon the Registrar of Companies of Singapore to take action to
stop this company from further promoting their business interest using the
Buddhist most scared representations .
I trust our principles and belief will be respected.
