Another Hindu temple in Malaysia will soon join the growing list of non Muslim houses of worship to be destroyed by (Muslim) authorities in the name of ‘progress’. In this case, the last Hindu temple reportedly in the central business district of Kuala Lumpur will soon be demolished as a part of a ‘redevelopment’ project, which does indeed constitute progress if you’re an Islamic supremacist. From “Temple in Golden Triangle told to vacate”, The Star, 16 July 2012:
KUALA Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has given the Sri Muniswarar Kaliyamman temple committee five days to vacate the premises to make way for a new
development project, Malaysia Nanban reported.
Hindraf information chief S. Jayathas, representing the 30-man temple committee,
urged the developer to incorporate the century-old Hindu temple in the
project in Bukit Nanas instead of asking the temple to relocate.
“The temple, located in Jalan Tengah, off Jalan P. Ramlee, is sited on DBKL reserve land and is the only temple for Hindus within the Kuala Lumpur
business zone, also known as the Golden Triangle,” he said.
Jayathas added that the temple should be saved from demolition and given the land title.
Yes, it should be saved.
