Over 2,000 celebrate Singapore's diversity at racial harmony event | Singapore Informer

SINGAPORE: More than 2,000 people gathered on Sunday evening (Jun 12) at the 12th Inter Racial Inter Religious Harmony Nite to celebrate Singapore’s diversity.

Guests included religious leaders, members of the public and foreign diplomats representing 21 countries.

Singapore President Tony Tan Keng Yam and his wife Mrs Mary Tan joined them at the event.

Guests also broke fast together in celebration of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, during which Muslims do not take food or drink during daylight hours.

Guests enjoyed ethnic cultural performances from various self-help groups.

They also folded 78,500 paper butterflies, breaking the Singapore record for the largest display of paper butterflies.

The butterfly is the emblem of the event, with its graceful flight representing the harmony that Singaporeans enjoy.

The event is organised by non-profit voluntary welfare organisation Thye Hua Kwan Moral Society.
