18 Months’ Probation For 21-Year-Old Who Posted Anti-Islam Remarks Online


A 21-year-old man who had posted content against a religion on his Instagram stories with deliberate intention to wound religious feelings was sentenced to 18 months’ probation on Thursday (June 23).

The man was also accused of making misogynistic remarks about a rape victim.

As part of his probation, Chinese national Sun Sicong, now 21-year-old, has to remain indoors from 10pm to 6am every day and perform 60 hours of community service.

His parents are also bonded for $5,000 to ensure his good behaviour.

The Temasek Polytechnic (TP) student, who is a Singapore permanent resident, pleaded guilty in May to uploading online remarks with the intention of wounding the religious feelings of others.

Sun had been suspended for two consecutive semesters following investigations it conducted in June 2020.

“(The polytechnic) does not condone any action or behaviour that incites hatred and violence. As the case is before the courts, we are unable to comment further,” it said in a statement back then.

He committed the offence between the year 2018 and 2019.

Two other charges, including one count of harassment, were considered during sentencing.
