About the speaker: Mr Raja Mohamad has been in the finance sector most of his life. But his involvement and volunteerism at the Nagore Dargah Indian Muslim Centre (NDIMHC) stems from his introspective query into his identity as an individual - Indian, Muslim, and Singaporean. He volunteers so that Singaporeans and other visitors would have the right narrative about Indian / Muslims in the local context.
