Seafield Temple Riot Caused By Developer’s Lawyers, Who Paid 50 Men To Trespass Into The Site

The past few days have been difficult for Malaysians, as the country struggle to understand the chaos behind the Seafield Hindu temple saga. It also doesn’t help that social media rumours have been adding fuel to the fire, stoking racial tension and stirring anger.

However, initial investigations have revealed that a group of men was actually paid to trespass into the Sri Maha Mariamman Temple in Putra Heights!

In a press conference today, Home Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said, according to a 2014 Shah Alam High Court order, the temple was to be relocated, but a group of Hindu devotees disagreed. After negotiations failed, the landowner decided to proceed with the court order to take over the site anyway.

But, this plan was allegedly hijacked by the landowner’s lawyers!

Tan Sri Muhyiddin explained, saying:

“150,000 ringgit was paid to the group’s leader, to trespass, take over and guard the temple. About 50 men were then hired to accomplish this.”

He added that each man was paid between RM150 and RM300. This forced entry provoked the anger of devotees at the temple, leading to a scuffle in the wee hours of 26 November. Following the incident, 21 people have been arrested, including the lawyers in question, but the landowner has repeatedly denied involvement. Meanwhile, the fireman, who was injured in a second scuffle at the temple on Tuesday night, is reported to be recovering at IJN. Phew!

The Home Minister reiterated that as such, the violence at the temple wasn’t motivated by racism, and urged Malaysians not to fan racist sentiments. Let’s hope Malaysians of all races unite, to heal the wounds caused by the traumatic events of this week.

Spread love, not hate, people!
