Of Heroes and Heroin: How the Singapore Malay-Muslim Community Waged War against Drug Abuse. Archival photographs, anecdotes, interviews and written tributes are brought together in this volume, which celebrates the life and achievements of Harun Abdul Shani (1939-2005). His career is traced from his birth in poverty, orphanage education, work as a teacher, and later as Secretary-General of the Malay Teachers' Union, and from 1991, and as a Member of Parliament. His warm personality, constructive commitment to drug abusers and their families, and to the needs of the Malay community gave him a unique status. The book describes the ongoing assistance given to the children of drug abusers by the Harun Ghani Education Fund. Partly in Malay.
