With the demolition of 101-year-old Sri Muniswarar Kaliyaman temple off Jalan P. Ramlee still fresh in our minds, comes another news of another temple on the brink of destruction. Even though the demolition is only partial - only the mural wall, fish pond and the adjacent caretaker's home that houses a shrine are slated to be… Continue reading Why is our government so spiteful towards Chinese and Hindu temples?
