S'gor MB: No more developments that displace temples

Contributed by Anonymous on Thursday, November 11 @ 23:37:13 CST

ReligionThe Star,
SHAH ALAM: The Selangor state government will no longer allow developments that will result in the displacement of existing temples in the area. Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim said the state government would also not approve any developments, especially housing projects, that did notify buyers of the existence of temples in the vicinity.

Khalid said developers who were aware there were temples in the area but did not inform house buyers about them were the ones to be blamed for any untoward incidents. Most buyers realised the temples were there only when their houses were already being built, he said in response to a question from Ismail Sani (BN-Dusun Tua) at the state assembly sitting here Thursday. He said the state had received several such complaints. "We are doing our best to resolve this matter," he added. However, Khalid said relocating temples to a more suitable area was not an easy task. Nevertheless, Khalid said a temple was better off in a suitable location as opposed to remaining in an inappropriate area. "We have relocated a temple before and we will solve the rest of the similar cases soon," he said, referring to the relocation of the 150-year-old Sri Mahamariamman temple to Section 23 here. According to Ismail, Muslim residents in Taman Lagenda Suria, Hulu Langat, were unhappy with a temple that was situated about 20m away from their homes. Ismail urged the state government to consider relocating the said temple. "I hope the government takes immediate action to avoid any racial tension," he said. Ismail, however, admitted that the temple site was approved nine years ago.******
