Panel to probe unregistered hill temples

THE Perak government has formed a special committee to address the plight of 15 unregistered hill temples in the state, Malaysia Nanban reported.

Sungkai assemblyman A. Sivanesan, Malaysia Hindu Sangam president Datuk RS Mohan Sham and state Hindu Sangam chairman P. Chandran attended a special meeting organised by the state.

There are 41 hill temples, 15 of which are unregistered and 14 face land issues.

The issue blew up after authorities reportedly issued eviction notices to some of these temples.

The temple officials who attended the meeting were advised to study the status of the temples and submit complete dossiers to the land office.

Sivanesan, a former state exco member, encouraged the temples to come together and work to save their premises while waiting for the government’s evaluation.

In the meantime, he said, the communities should avoid building more of such temples.
