MCCBCHST CALLS FOR CALM AND UNDERSTANDING

MCCBCHST (Malaysian Consultative Council of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Sikhism & Taoism) calls on all concerned to be calm and reasonable so that the authorities and the parties concerned will be able to find a peaceable agreement and understanding regarding the protest staged by some residents of Section 22 in Shah Alam, Selangor against the construction of a Hindu Temple in the vicinity.

Nothing can be gained by provocative action on the part of any side.

MCCBCHST regrets that a severed cow’s head was brought along in the demonstration. The cow is sacred to the Hindu religion.

MCCBCHST urges that unhappy residents will give the religious authorities of both sides a chance to discuss matters  with the state authorities so that an amicable solution can be arrived at.

Religious issues are best resolved around the negotiation table where mutual respect can be shown to all. No further demonstration by any side should be contemplated or allowed.

Peace and order should be maintained for the sake of all residents.
