Singapore's Ministry of Defence (MINDEF) said it takes a serious view of the conduct of its servicemen in public.

It said this in response to media queries on reports that a full-time national serviceman (NSF) had posted on his Facebook wall a picture of text that criticises Islam.

The NSF was identified as Mr Christian Eliab Ratnam.

His alleged act was condemned by netizens, while his account has been deactivated.

In a statement on Sunday, Director of Public Affairs of MINDEF, Colonel Desmond Tan, said police investigations are ongoing.

He said MINDEF is assisting in the probe and will take appropriate actions, if necessary.

This is the second such investigation this month.

A former PAP Youth Wing member, Jason Neo, is also under investigation for an offensive caption on his Facebook account of Malay children in a school bus.

Seems like a pretty big invasion of human rights and privacy.
What human rights and privacy? Singapore isn't the United States. Does Singapore has the First Amendment as in the United States? I think it's more important for Singapore being a small country to maintain peace and harmony among the many religious groups.

I agree it's a big invasion of human rights and privacy but Singapore is a small country and if they allow people to say and do whatever they like, it will create unrest which the small island cannot afford. Such unrest would drive away foreign investments which are the main source of income for the island nation. The Singapore government needs to make sure that religious and racial harmony prevails for the greater good.

What you said is true. However, there are hundreds of other little things that a lot of other people are doing that aren't exactly acceptable either. Racism or what not, being excessively (and perhaps in a biased manner) selective about what we deem is ethically acceptable is something that's just as 'wrong' as being the individual committing this rather... immature act. Besides. There's no such thing as privacy across the internet. Pays to know this fact well.
