Insensitivity towards the Hindu religious sacred symbol

Country: Category:

On 28 August 2009 a protest march was held by a group of Malay Muslims in Petaling Jaya against the location of a Hindu temple in the vicinity of their residence. The protestors carried a severed cow’s head to rub salt into their overt disregard for the sensitivity of the Indian Hindus. Ten days after the incident the Police took no action against the Malay Muslim offenders. Yet 16 Indian Hindus were arrested for holding a peaceful candle light march at Dataran Merdeka to protest the desecration of a sacred Hindu symbol.
