Former Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew yesterday refuted a leaked United States Embassy cable which reported that he had described Islam as a “venomous religion”.

In a statement issued by his press secretary, Ms Yeong Yoon Ying, he said: “This is false.”

Mr Lee said that nowhere in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs notes “does it record me describing Islam as ‘venomous’, nor did I say anything which could have given that impression”.
