Singapore: Following media reports suggesting that at least three of the four 7/7 London bombers received training from Islamic radicals at Pakistani madarassas, the Singapore government has begun monitoring the movements of its citizens visiting Pakistan, particularly the madarassas there.
Singapore Deputy Prime Minister Tony Tan confirmed this while speaking in the country’s parliament.
He, however, said that the government could not control every movement of its people.
“Yes, we do keep track. We try to keep track of who goes there, but we are a free society so we cannot be sure of everybody. We do know that there are Singaporeans who have gone to some madarassas in a neighbouring country and from there went on to Pakistan,” The News quoted Tan as saying.
