No Buddhist temple and church in Putrajaya too

Putrajaya is a new township after Shah Alam with NO non-Muslim worshiping places are planned in its master plan.

Mahathir believed that those non-Malays visit, stay or work in Putrajaya are either communists or atheists.

Although non-Malays in Klang Valley is about 50% or more, and no worshiping place for non-Muslims in Putrajaya is telling that

1. Mahathir is a fascist. His true color is only being exposed after he relinquished PM post.

2. UMNO is a racist and apartheid advocator.

3. MCA and MIC are second class component parties in the BN with no influence to shape national policies.

Hindu temple is only allowed now after UMNO sensing that BN will be defeated without the strong support from Indians.

Thai Muslims get the funding from Thai government to build mosques whereas Indian and Chinese in Malaysia have to raise their own fund. At worst, no worshiping place is permitted at all.

Sister Listen will suggest, “Why not you move to Thailand?”

Temple for Putrajaya

PUTRAJAYA: Members of the Putra-jaya Sri Maha Mariamman Devas-thanam Devotees’ Association finally had their prayers answered with the approval to build a temple in the administrative capital.

Having secured approval from the local authorities, the association is hoping it can start building the 17,000 sq ft structure by September this year.

The temple will be built on a one-acre plot allocated to them in Precinct 20. Even after receiving the green light to start building the Sri Lalithambikai Alayam temple, the association has one more hurdle to deal with before seeing its dream become a reality.

“At the moment we have very little funds. Our current estimate is around RM9.8mil to build the temple plus another RM2mil in floating funds, though we have been advised to try and bring down the cost to around RM7mil to RM8mil,” said association president Datuk Kanagaraja Raman.

Kanagaraja said they were hoping for some government funding to help cover the construction costs of the temple.

The temple will serve around 10,000 Hindus in Putrajaya and surrounding areas once completed in early 2016.

The association will also reach out to the public to raise funds for the project, he added at a press conference to announce the approval of the temple.

Kanagaraja revealed that the temple complex, which will be able to accommodate up to 600 devotees at any given time, will be a one-of-a-kind structure using elements adapted from existing temples in north and south India.

Apart from the temple proper and an administrative wing, the complex will also house an IT and learning centre which will be open to the public to gain a better understanding of Hinduism.

Kanagaraja said they planned on incorporating between 10 and 20 special pillars into the temple complex, which will ring when tapped not unlike the musical pillars of Vittala temple in the ruined city of Vijayanagara in the southern Indian state of Karnataka.

Former MIC president Datuk Seri S Samy Vellu who attended a briefing on the temple, said the approval for the temple’s construction was a fulfilment of the Barisan Nasional’s pledge to provide a place of worship for Hindus in Putrajaya.

I’m a catholic working in JPM’s office in Putrajaya. Every week I have to go to St John’s Church, Bukit Nanas, KL to attend Sunday mass.How nice if I have a dream like:- PM appear in my dream and asks me of what I want in my life and it will be fulfill. So my answer will be not asking for promotion, wealth, bussines licenses but I humbly asks for a Catholic Church to be build in any Precint in Putrajaya.

Kuanqiao says:

I think your dream is unlikely to be fulfilled by the current PM for the obvious reason.
Unless there is a sizable Christian population to be vote kingmaker. Putrajaya is an easy seat for BN with its BTNised civil servants’ votes, so unlikely for Umno to jeopardize it with more Christian population.

On November 16, 2005, Archbishop Murphy Pakiam announced that the Malaysian government had generously allocated a parcel of land in Putrajaya to the Archdiocese of Kuala Lumpur for building a Catholic church-run community centre. The Putrajaya Catholic Church Building Committee was set up on October 3, 2005. According to the committee, “The architectural planning and design will conform to the Liturgical requirements complimenting the ambience of Putrajaya’s lush greenery and landscape. We envisage the Putrajaya church to be a hallmark of the Catholic community in Malaysia and showcase the rich heritage of the Malaysian Catholics.”

Nam says:

Is this true, nkkhoo? I don’t think there will be any church in Putrajaya.

nkkhoo says:

Google map should be able to tell the truth.

Anyway, I will visit KDN in Putrajaya this week for a personal matter related to my late father and able to see myself any church in precinct 21 or not.
