There is a reported incident that came to my attention today regarding the intruders who created unnecessary racial tension in the Seafield Temple yesterday night. I outrightly condemn this cowardly action by a group of intruders who doesn’t have any authority to enter the temple with dangerous weapons and attacked the civilians in the temple.
The issue of relocation of the temple is an outcome from the tussle between two groups within temple administration. However, Selangor State Government stand with its decision that everyone need to abide with court decisions and rule of law should prevail. At the same time, the State Government is also facilitating the temple with the cooperation from temple management, the Task Force and relevant authorities to find an amicable solution for this issue.
Meantime, the attack by a group of Muslim group who shows there are attempts to create disharmony among races who have been living peacefully all these while. I urged Police to investigate thoroughly on this incident and provide necessary protection to the civilians in accordance with Article 11 of our Constitution.
