PKR EXCO Member cum Indian Mandore for Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Khalid’s show time. The demolition of the 130 year old temple to be put off -Maha Mariaman Temple in Janjarom, Selangor. (The Star 9/10/09 at page N55 and also Makkal Osai 8/10/09 front page). This PKR Indian mandore comes to the temple and does the usual wayang kulit, which the previous MIC Indian EXCO Member cum UMNO Mandore had been playing for the previous 50 years until 8th March 2007.
It is the HINDRAF inspired people power residents of Jenjarom that stopped this demolishment. This PKR Indian mandore has done this very same wayang kulit at least two times before (and specializes in getting them published in the three Tamil newspaper)when this very same hindu temple previously came up for demolishment by the PKR led Selangor state government.
By the stroke of the pen the PKR led Selangor Menteri Besar, Anwar Ibrahim, DAP and PAS can stop this plantation’s historical and heritage hindu temple from being demolished by compulsorily acquiring this land and handing it over to this temple by virtue of Section 76 of the National Land Code (NLC). But UMNO or PKR, DAP and PAS would never save this or any other hindu temple for that matter. But they would all call themselves multi-racial parties.
Why doesn’t any surau or Masjid come up for demolishment like these hindu temples? The answer is that all suraus and Masjids which were previously on state and private land had been acquired converted and gazetted into Masjid and surau reserve land futher to Section 76 of the NLC by UMNO, PKR, PAS and DAP. But a different rule applies when it comes to hindu temples in Malaysia.
