PM eyes new law on building houses of worship

PETALING JAYA: Parliament will pass a new resolution that no houses of worship can be built without the consent of the local councils, says Prime Minister Tun Dr Maha­thir Mohamad.

This is to avoid future occurrences of land disputes such as the one which led to the fracas at the Seafield Sri Maha Mariamman Temple in USJ 25 on Monday.
