Hindu temples as wrecking ball targets As a concerned citizen & a Hindu, I am asking what can be done to stop the wanton destruction of these places of worship? This issue more than anything has got my goat as it reeks of religious zealotry.
Yes, many of these temples are built hapharzardly and sprout up sometimes in inconvenient locales which hinder development. But in many instances, this is not the case. It is just the powers-that-be flexing their political muscle. Are we Hindus being targetted simply because we are a minority? Is it the BN's way of saying, "look at what we can do to you if you do not toe the line"? Is this what the DPM means when he proclaims the country an Islamic nation?
Even the famed Bukit Gasing Sivan temple is facing all sorts of obstacles in trying to complete the long awaited and much needed renovations. It is a world famous site & it is mind-boggling that the leadership of the MIC can't do anything given that they are regular worshippers at this venerated temple.
When will this campaign to destroy Hindu temples end?
