Abstract: State discourse has identified race and religion as a ‘fault line’ and catalyst for disharmony in Singaporean society, and race and religion has often been blamed for the turbulent times sparked by race riots before independence in 1965. The government has been very understanding of religious and racial sensitivities, and has therefore imposed strict measures to moderate and control the press, especially after the chaotic times in the 1950’s and the 1960’s. Due to the sensitivity of the topics, race and religion have rarely been discussed in the public sphere, and, as the media has been largely state controlled and extremely self-regulating, race and religious issues have rarely made the news headlines. Spanning the decades and analyzing race and religious relations within the context of print media, this thesis will examine the ways in which perceptions of the Chinese towards Malays has been shaped in Singapore post 9-11.
