Malaysian Worshippers Fear 79-year-old Temple Slated to Make Way for Development


KUALA LUMPUR, July 20, 2015 (The Rakyat Post): Hindu worshipper of a 79-year-old temple in Cheras were shocked to find themselves locked out from the place of worship. As word spread, it resulted in a crowd gathering. The timely arrival of police prevented any untoward incident, who ordered the temple main doors to be unlocked. And surprisingly, the individual who turned up to unlock the chain padlock was a suspected underworld element known to Cheras residents. Worshippers have now expressed concern whether the temple lock-out was a sign indicating the Sri Thohaiyadi Vinayagar temple located off the Km4 Jalan Cheras was earmarked to make way for a multi-million ringgit mixed development project. “This came as a real shock… finding the temple main doors locked to the public,” former Selangor and ex-international football player K. Kanagaraja told The Rakyat Post.
