I refer to the Malaysiakini report 'Temple urged to withdraw police reports' which quotes Shahbandar Shah Alam MIC branch chairman K P Samy asking the Batu Caves temple committee to withdraw the police report lodged by the temple against the 'protesters' who were at the temple grounds preceeding the Nov 25th rally in 2007. Seventy people were subsequently charged in court for illegal assembly and damage to public property.
I fully support this move, and urge the temple committee to strongly consider withdrawing the reports, in conjunction with the Thaipusam festival tomorrow. Let us put our differences behind and move forward as one. I am eager to see the charges against the 70 dropped.
I sincerely hope MIC leaders will take this call by KP Samy seriously and persuade the temple committee to withdraw the reports, and see that the AG drops the charges.
