Jacky Ng started this petition to The People of Singapore

Zainal Abidin Shaiful Bahari has been charged in court on 2 July 2020 under Section 298A (b) -
committing an act which is prejudicial to the maintenance of harmony between different religious or racial groups. This is in relation to his twitter handle, @sharonliew86.

Sharon Liew is deliberately designed to be ridiculous and majority of twitter users has the ability to discern this twitter account is one of satire. The usage of the word “apuneneh” is actually not to disparage Indians or people of South Asian descent but meant to highlight the racist micro-aggression that these people face every day.

Newspaper reports have not painted the complete story and chosen only to report specific tweets that seemed aimed at the Indian community. This is certainly not true as Sharon Liew aims to bring out the ironic racial disharmony and is showing what is but a true reflection of subtle racism of all races in Singapore.

This is an online petition in support of Zainal Abidin/Sharon Liew, that the tweets are not made with malicious intent and are made in satire. 

Please put your name below to acknowledge that you know Sharon Liew is a satire account and you want to #FreeSharonLiew
