He was proved guilty by a court, of promoting enmity between communities and was fined Singapore Dollars 4,000 (equivalent to US $ 2,850) and repatriation to his home country. Singapore has been strict in implementing law against promotion of hatred and enmity and courts have been handing down stiff punishment to the violators. Jameel paid the fine.
