Murugesan tells his version of Padang Jawa temple demolition

In Belit Khir Toyo, Rimba Jaya on April 29, 2008 at 10:41 pm

poobalan – (…) Coming back to Murugesan’s version, he also confirms that the inner sanctum was invaded earlier, same as mentioned by other readers. He also implicate the state Legal Officer in addition to the known fact that the Mayor was deeply involved. HINDRAF should have started campaign to remove these two people, along with Toyo. Is it too late now?

Reply To Dr Khir Toyo On Kg Karuppiah Temple Breaking

http://s-murugesan.blogspot.com/2008/04/reply-to-dr-khir-toyo-on-kg-karuppiah.html

Today (28th April, 2008), Malaysiakini reported that former MB of Selangor, Dr Khir Toyo stated that the Kg Karrupiah Temple (referred to by some as Rimba Jaya Temple or Padang Jawa Temple) breaking was ordered by MIC President Dato Seri S.Samy Vellu and that the temple was broken after Deepavali. This is my letter in reply to the editor of Malaysiakini.

To the Editor of Malaysiakini,

How could Dr. Mohd Khir Toyo say that the temple was broken two days after Deepavali? It was broken a week BEFORE Deepavali. Did the whole nation get it wrong? Or were all the reports and pictures in ALL the three Tamil Dailies of the broken temple, lies?former MB was referring to remnants of the temple structure Perhaps the that was left standing or the ‘temporary temple’ ‘rebuilt’ at the same site by some quarters after the initial breaking. However the Kg Karuppiah Maha Mariamman Temple as we know it was broken on the 30th October, 2007.

I was there on that day. The MBSA made the first attempt to break the temple in the morning around 9.00 am. They were stopped by the residence there and Shah Alam MIC Committee members. MBSA Officers then said that the temple will be broken by 12 noon and all the deities were to be removed by then. A number of youths began to gather at the temple site in an attempt to prevent the temple breaking.

MBSA kept to their word and made a charge around noon but was ordered to be stopped by the police as it turned violent. In the meantime fellow lawyer, Mr Sivanesan and me demanded MBSA to show that they had the authority to break the temple. The MBSA legal officer was called to the site but was unable to show a court order that specified that the temple be broken. He then resorted to a notice by MBSA. Upon inspection the notice was dated two years ago. We argued on the validity of the notice but the Legal Officer held his ground. A plea that the matter be referred to court to resolve ambiguity before the temple is broken also fell into deaf ears. more…
