For one, the "take beer" banner is a dead giveaway (as the picture shows). The banner is unique only to UMNO and it's been used only by UMNO supporters/activists during the Permatang Pasir by-election. If this wasn't UMNO's handiwork, then why is this banner part of the demonstration?
And we all know that the issue of Section 23 temple was first brought into light by Noh Umar. It's a cheap racists poltical tactic by UMNO to incite hate so as to create dissatisfaction among Malay/Muslim electorate in Shah Alam against the Pakatan goverment.
As a result of Noh Omar's incitement, the demonstrators (whom i believe is paid by UMNO to demonstrate) when and take it a step further, that is, by bringing a severed cow's head as a sign of protest.
Another thing is that, only UMNO people has that amount of hate to openly transgress the Sedition Act. Only UMNO people are protected by the law from offenses related to inciting racial hatred and inciting sensitive issues. Other people are not fortunate enough and will never dare to cross the line.
So, in a way, Noh Omar is responsible for this particular act of racial and religous defacation committed by a group of unknown individuals who claims to represent the Section 23 residents.
True Muslims Would Not Defile Other Religion's Symbol Like What Happened
All over the muslims world, there exists hundreds of thousands of religous symbols and relics that is not Islamic in nature. But, over the years, Muslims have never taken any steps to destroy these religous symbols.
In Afghanistan and Pakistan, there exists Buddhists statues and temples aging in the thousands of years still standing. In Indonesia, we have the Brobodur Temple still standing in spite of the fact that the entire surrounding population have converted to Islam.
In short, Muslims are not thought to be disrespectful to other religion's symbols and signs. What the demonstrators are doing is against the teachings of Islam especially when the local Hindus DID NOT DO ANYTHING DISRESPECTFUL of ISLAM.
My Proposal: Leave the Section 19 Temple Where it is, and Sue PKNS for Lying to the Residents
I do not believe the Section 19 temple should be razed down. The temple has been there for more than 60 years, long before Shah Alam ever became a city. The Section 19 residents who were tricked by PKNS last time should sue PKNS for compensation.
It's not fair that the Section 19 temple has to be moved considering they were first there and they never wanted to distrub anyone. People came and lived in it's surrounding and those who came later should respect it's existence.
If those residents who were lied to feel the need to be compensated, then they should get it from PKNS and not force the Section 19 temple to be moved.
Pity we have UMNO trying to play up sensitive issues just to get political mileage and not have any regards for how other people feel and think.
