Malaysia: Recently, foreigners have been increasingly attacking statues of Hindu deity and desecrating Temples in Malaysia. The Sri Maha Mariamman Temple was recently attacked by a Muslim man.

In the early hours of 17 August, he is suspected to have used a spanner to desecrate 15 Hindu god’s statues at the Temple situated in Kampung Dusun Bertam. The suspect is an Indonesian who has been arrested by the Malaysian police at about 4.15 am today.

The offender is said to be a patient, suffering from ‘mental’ illness.

This was not the first time that such an incident took place in Malaysia.

On 10 July 2016, perpetrators had vandalised Sri Muneeswarar Temple, Jalan Tengku Kudin, Gelugor, which is said to be at least 70-year old and the perpetrators had attacked three statues of Shri Ganesh, Muneeswarar and Sivalingam inside the Temple.

Earlier on 20 June this year, a Muslim man had vandalised a Hindu Temple. The guilty was termed a recurrent outlaw by the locals.

In March, the same Muslim man had entered a Temple and attacked its window panes which was behind the kitchen area. The culprit, despite this, had walked away freely as the police had not taken any action against him.

The said man has been associated with several criminal cases, according to the locals. On the day of vandalising the Krishna Mandir, he had also screamed in the middle of the night but still managed to escape the police.

Later on 5 June, the culprit, identified as Islam bin Ahmad, a permanent resident of the country, was charged and sent to prison for 16 months.

The local media, however, did not give much attention and coverage to the case of Krishna Mandir of Ipoh. This clearly shows that the rights of Hindu citizens can be easily walked over by foreigners with indemnity.

It has been quite often in Malaysia that Hindu Temples have been constantly attacked, triggering anger among the Hindu community in the country. The Hindus are finding themselves cornered on these recurring incidents.
