Temples at risk of being demolished


Compiled by SIRA HABIBU, C. ARUNO and R. ARAVINTHAN

TEMPLES which were built on land belonging to the state or private individuals in Kedah may risk being demolished, Malaysia Nanban reported.

Out of the 523 Hindu temples in the state, only 25 are sited on their own land.

It is unclear how the rest of the temples had been built without permission from the landowners.

The information was shared by a special officer of Kedah Mentri Besar during an interview on Facebook with an activist.

He also said that a new committee had been formed to address the issue.



> Eight students from underprivileged families in Kulim, Kedah received laptops, thanks to the efforts of a doctor and a former teacher, Makkal Osai reported.

The students were picked based on their families’ financial situation.
