Mr. Ramaji, an eyewitness to a pre-dawn attack of the 147-year-old Sri Maha Marianmman temple in USJ25, Putra Heights, has revealed an interesting story. According to the “Save Seafield Sri Maha Marianmman Temple” task force chairman, there were about 250 thugs who assaulted several devotees and temple priests who were conducting prayers.

 

The 2am attack on Monday (Nov 26) saw him with at least six others being held hostage at knifepoint. He told Malay Mail news media – “Wielding knives, axes, rakes, parangs and wooden sticks, they barged into the temple compound before ordering all within to vacate the premises immediately. They shouted that they were here to take over the land on behalf of One City.

 

He was, of course, referring to One City Development Sdn Bhd, the developer who purchased the land from Sime UEP Properties Sdn Bhd. The developer has denied the mobsters were sent by them. The Hindu temple riot saw 18 cars and two motorcycles burnt, forcing some 700 police personnel, including those from the FRU, deployed to the scene of the incident.

Initially, the Subang Jaya police declared the fight was between two rival ethnic Indian groups over the relocation of the temple. However, Mr. Ramaji disputed the police statement, exposing that the attackers as being of Malay ethnicity. He revealed the mob left behind their personal documents like identification cards (IC) and driver’s licenses, hence proof that the thugs were Malays.

 

With all the proof, deputy Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Noor Rashid Ibrahim finally acknowledged that the attackers were indeed Malays, saying – “Perhaps the side wanting to take over (the land) engaged a group of Malay men to facilitate the acquisition. It is possible that they are gangsters and, of course, the Indian group attempted to check the intrusion.”

 

However, the deputy police chief played down the number of mobsters involved, claiming there were only 50 thugs and not 250 as revealed by Mr. S Ramaji. Obviously, the police have some serious explaining to do as to why their initial report says that the riot was nothing but an Indian-vs-Indian clash. Why did they hide the fact that the clash involved ethnic Malays in the first place?

At best, the Subang Jaya district police chief ACP Muhammad Azlin Sadari was completely incompetent in handling such situation – mobsters terrorizing the Sri Maha Marianmman temple. At worst, the police chief was probably bribed by gangsters to turn a blind eye, even a racist himself – trying to cover-up the ethnicity of the attackers. Either way, he should be fired.

 

It’s certainly easier to blame the riot on the ethnic Indian alone. After all, the perception was such that the Indian community is normally involved in petty thefts, drugs, armed robberies, gangsterism and whatnot. That’s because a majority of them received very little education, not to mention they have been systematically discriminated by the previous Barisan Nasional regime.

 

Thanks to social media, people were quickly informed that the temple riot was not a racial riot. Still, can you see how the incident could easily be twisted and escalated into a racial riot? When you have ethnic Malay “running amok” inside the Sri Maha Marianmman temple, you don’t need Donald Trump to tweet that the Malays was trying to demolish an Indian temple and slaughter the Indians.

The lies from the Subang Jaya police chief have only added fuel to the tensions. It was alleged that only one patrol car from the Subang Jaya police station arrived at the scene at about 4.15am – 2 hours after the attacks. It also didn’t help that the racists and extremists from UMNO Malay Nationalist party and the PAS Islamist party have promised bloodshed in their coming Anti-ICERD rally on Dec 8.

 

In fact, there were naughty rumours that the attack by Malays on the Indian temple was a dry run – an experiment – by UMNO gangsters to start a racial riot on Dec 8. That’s because membership cards bearing logo and certificates of a Malay Silat group (Pertubuhan Silat Seni Gayong Malaysia) were found during the attack, presumably dropped by some of the Malay thugs.

 

And it certainly doesn’t look good on Mahathir government and the Royal Malaysia Police that UMNO and PAS troublemakers are allowed to freely incite violence and riot. Can you imagine what would happen if the situation is reversed – a group of ethnic Indians enters a mosque and start terrorizing everyone? All hell will break loose.

Like it or not, Mahathir government has to put a stop to all these nonsense – regardless whether it was a Chinese developer paying Malay gangsters to smash an Indian temple, or Indian rioters burning cars belonging to innocent owners, or defeated Malay politicians stirring up racial and religion sentiments by threatening May 13-style racial riots.

 

PM Mahathir and his ministers can only blame crooked Najib Razak and his evil wife Rosmah Mansor for only so much. The previous regime had collapsed. The new government calls the shot now. Exactly why the old man keeps bitching about some civil servants still being loyal to the previous regime, but has refused to sack those traitors and incompetent little Napoleons, is beyond comprehension.

 

Now, do you understand why we have to give a jolt of reminder to Mahathir government so that they would stop pussyfooting on racism and extremism being pushed by UMNO and PAS? If you think the temple riot is bad, wait until you see the terrorism and rioting to be unleashed by the radicalized followers of both political parties – thanks to instigators Zahid Hamidi and Hadi Awang.
