THERE will be no new Hindu temples built in Johor without the approval of the state government, Makkal Osai reported.

This was announced by Yayasan Sultanah Rogayah chairman Datuk Sugumaran Raman at the annual general meeting of the Johor chapter of the Malaysia Hindu Sangam. He was at the event as a special guest.

There are now 250 Hindu temples in Johor.

Sugumaran also said that a RM1.3mil funeral rites centre being built in Masai will be completed this year.

> A YouTuber in India is in trouble with the law after announcing the gender of the baby his wife is carrying, Makkal Osai reported.

The man, identified only as Irfan, had found out that his wife was expecting a girl after an ultrasound procedure when on a trip to Dubai.

He relayed the news to his family and later uploaded a video of his announcement on YouTube.

This led to the Tamil Nadu authorities sending him a summons over the issue.
