SINGAPORE - The people behind a new group lobbying for a culture of honour came together as friends, said its chairman Lim Siong Guan, downplaying their common Christian ties.

Mr Lim, who is also the group president of Singapore sovereign wealth fund GIC, said: "A group of us who have known each other for many years and who all think the same way about wanting Singapore to be a place of peace and stability, decided to set up Honour Singapore."

"Honour Singapore is not a Christian or religious organisation...

"We are not an advocacy group on issues of Government or public policies," he added, in response to queries from The Straits Times.
