I was living in Muscat then and saw this programme relayed live from Singapore in Star TV (I think). One important aspect has been omitted in the narrative above. After the Hon’ble PM shut down the Pak envoy, there was a perceptible embarrassment for the legendary Lee Kwan Yew as an incident like this had happened when the whole world was seeing. A young girl stood up to ask the next question to the PM and before she even opened her mouth, Lee Kwan Yew said “Hope you are not a Pakistani”. It took a few minutes for the applause to die down!
