Baseless and discriminatory reasons from HDB

Straits Times 
20th December 2012

Laws and rules are made for men and not the other way round! Laws and rules can be amended according to times. So why is HDB being so rigid? Where is the compassion and empathy? Since they are retirees and buying their first HDB flat, why is government grant denied? Weii reasons given that they are not employed for the past year and they being retirees are baseless and discriminatory. 

Is the HDB practising age discrimination? Or is it gonna be a reality from ex-Health Minister Khaw Boon Wan once said that old folks need to stay in JB, Malaysia for their retirement? 
Is this what you call a "Singaporeans all inclusive" nation by Prime Minister Lee? Is this another "respectful" way to signal to our senior citizens that they are of no more use and contribution to society?
