MHS calls for Kamunting temple rebuild

Compiled by C. ARUNO and R. ARAVINTHAN

MALAYSIA Hindu Sangam (MHS) is demanding for a demolished temple in Kamunting, Perak to be rebuilt and statues of its deities returned, reported Makkal Osai.

The Sri Maha Mariamman Temple custodian claimed they received no notice before the temple, which was located opposite the Kamunting detention centre, was demolished.

MHS president Datuk RS Mohan Shan said the temple’s deities statues were allegedly taken to Penang, and were now in the possession of a prison officer.

MHS and the temple custodians had been discussing the status of the temple with the authorities since 2017. When the discussions stalled, MHS sought help from the previous state administration but to no avail.
