Dear Friends & Supporters of Truth
SMEGMA, written and directed by Elangovan and presented by Agni Kootthu (Theatre of Fire)was the most controversial play of 2006.
On 1 Aug 06, MDA gave the play a public entertainment license with RA-18 rating, and suddenly cancelled the license on 4 Aug 06, the eve of the production.
MDA replied that SMEGMA portrayed Muslims in a negative light.
But MDA had the full particulars of the 5 Muslims who were acting in the play.
Subsequently, MDA's bureaucratic acrobatics raised questions on 'transparency in censorship' (if there is one in Singapore) in the international print-media and alternative websites.
Since then, many have asked for the text of SMEGMA.
SMEGMA, the book, ISBN: 981-05-6441-4, S$15 (without GST). is now available at

The communication between Agni Kootthu (Theatre of Fire) and MDA, as well as the press-release to the international media are documented in SMEGMA, a social register of the hilarious state of censorship in Singapore.
Kindly globalise this information for those who would like to enjoy reading SMEGMA to inhale some alternative truth from the plastic nation.
