With news and information being easily accessible at our fingertips, how do we determine what is fact or fiction? Does it actually matter? How does it affect the Muslim community and our community at large? In this instalment of the MClub Conversation series, participants will get insights into how to determine fake news and fake religious guidance, how it is created and how to fight it.

The world today faces the danger of deliberate online falsehoods creating divisions and misunderstandings within communities. In Singapore, we have seen how viral fake news content causes doubts, promotes distrusts, stirs controversy and reinforces religious and racial cleavages, compromising Singapore’s social fabric.

Fake news also affects our personal and community religious life. The porous nature of social media has led to the democratisation of religious knowledge. While this has empowered believers, the spread of false and problematic religious content may corrupt our personal religious practice and undermine religious community life in Singapore.
