Indian intellectuals, who want to be secure in their liberal beliefs, may not understand what is going on.

Outrage in Kuala Lumpur over demolition of Hindu shrine

Kuala Lumpur, Dec 3 : The Malaysian Indian Congress has expressed anger over the Kuala Lumpur City Hall's (DBKL) decision to demolis a 15-year-old Hindu shrine in Taman Desa, Seputeh.

DBKL issued a notice indicating the actions it would take on October 23, but the message was pasted on the shrine''''s wall and not handed over to the management.

Asking for an explanation from DBKL on demolition of shrine, which was located on a field, MIC president Datuk Seri S.Samy Vellu said he would talk to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

"I have an understanding with the Federal Territories Minister that no existing temples would be demolished. If there was any development on the land, then the temple would be relocated," said Deputy Federal Territories Minister Datuk M. Saravanan, the star online reports.
