Satya wrote me, "After destroying more than 10,000 Hindu Temples with the premise that they are built illegally (build during British time when British allowed the laborers to build temples on the plantation sites -- only Hindu Temples are targeted while Mosques are left alone), Malay Muslims parade with a cow head after prayers threatening with bloodshed over building of a Hindu Temple in a Muslim area.
Make sure to 'Display Images' to see the picture of the parade with a cow head (after the prayers).
Why 'cow head'? Cow is considered sacred for Hindus. What are they praying, one would wonder?"
Muslim Protesters threaten bloodshed over Hindu temple Malaysia Reporter
SHAH ALAM, Aug 28 — A group of Malay-Muslim protesters claiming to be residents of Section 23 have threatened bloodshed unless the state government stopped the construction of a Hindu Temple.
Amid chants of "Allahuakbar," the group also left the severed head of a cow at the entrance of the State Secretariat here as a warning to Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim.
The "residents" said that the construction of a Hindu temple in a 90 per cent Malay- Muslim neighbourhood was insensitive because activities there would disrupt their lives.
They claimed that the "noise" from the temple would disturb their own praying, and that they would not be able to function properly as Muslims.
But their daily call to prayer is ......... soothing?
The group of 50 over protestors marched shortly after Friday prayers from the Shah Alam State mosque to the State Secretariat.
“I challenge YB Khalid, YB Rodziah and Xavier Jeyakumar to go on with the temple construction. I guarantee bloodshed and racial tension will happen if this goes on, and the state will be held responsible,” shouted Ibrahim Haji Sabri amid strong chants of “Allahu Akbar!”
Ibrahim identified himself as the Deputy Chairman of the Resident’s Committee against the building of the temple in S23 here, which is perceived by some as being a Muslim majority area.
He told the press that the state should move the temple to Section 22 as ‘originally planned’, and also labelled Khalid a “traitor to the Malay race and Islam”.
It is understood that the protest is an immediate reaction towards the Selangor MB’s visit to the Hindu temple site yesterday, an act seen by the "residents" as disrespectful to the Muslims of the community.
