1. MB to discuss Temples

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 31 (Bernama): Selangor Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Mohamad Khir Toyo will meet the chairmen of all Hindu temples in the state on Friday to discuss problems affecting the places of worship.

Malaysian Hindu Council chairman Datuk R. Nadarajah said 800 temple chairmen would attend the gathering in Batu Caves.

He said a memorandum on issues relating to the Hindu temples would also be submitted to the menteri besar.

Nadarajah, who is also chairman of the Sri Mariamman Temple Dhevasthanam, urged chairmen or representatives of all temples to attend the meeting.

I hope matters relating to registration of all temples in the state, and the issue of land and grants for building temples will be discussed at the meeting.
