The attack on Subang’s Sri Maha Mariamman temple on Monday morning shocked the whole of Malaysia, causing racial tensions among the Malays and the Indians.
Police officers had made a few arrests that day and had been conducting investigation that have finally led them to the masterminds behind this heinous crime.
The Home Minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said that police investigation revealed that the leader of the group which broke into the temple was handed RM150,000 by the lawyers, which was used to pay the thugs RM150 to Rm300 each.
“Because they hired Malays to ‘take care of things’ at a Hindu temple, you can imagine the reaction it would trigger.
“As an example, imagine what would happen if you send Hindus to take care of a mosque?” said Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin
Among the 21 arrested by the police, two of them are the lawyers who paid the thugs.
On Monday (26 Nov), One City deny any involvement that it was behind the temple issues.
The developer said allegations of them being the masterminds of the incident were malicious lies and the company condemned both acts of violence and insinuations that they would resort to ”such despicable acts”
“Most importantly, One City is committed to adhering to the rule of law in addressing the temple which is sitting on its land,” the developer said in its statement.
