THE Malaysia Hindu Sangam (MHS), which manages 1,900 of the nation’s 3,000 Hindu temples, will work closely with the Federal and all state governments regardless of who the ruling political party is, Malaysia Nanban reported.
Datuk R.S. Mohan Shan said this at MHS Perak’s 38th annual general meeting in Ipoh.
“The association must maintain its neutrality as it represents the Hindu community and is guardian to assets worth RM40mil,” he said.
In Perak, it was the Hindu community’s hope that the Pakatan Harapan government would continue protecting the state’s temples.
> A video of a sub-inspector in Tamil Nadu, India, beating a palmistry practitioner with his shoes has gone viral, Makkal Osai reported.
When he saw the palm reader outside a shop, the inspector asked him for a reading as he was retiring soon and wanted to know what the future held for him.
The palm reader said he would face problems getting his retirement benefits and government pension.
The furious cop then took off his shoe and beat the man with it as bystanders recorded the attack on their mobile phones.
