Just when we thought Perkasa has become ‘quiet’, it came up with yet another ridiculous statement.
The so-called Malay rights wing group Perkasa has been uncharacteristically quiet recently and it was quite unusually considering that the group seemed to have much to say about anything.
But then, just when Malaysians are enjoying the peace from the ‘silence’, its leader came out and started playing out the issue of the construction of the Sri Lalithambikai Alayam temple.
The Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor has hit out at Perkasa for questioning of the construction of the temple in Putrajaya where it suggested that it would change the population into Hindus there.
Tengku Adnan was responding to Perkasa Youth chief Irwan Fahmi Ideris who questioned the construction of the Hindu temple in a Malay-majority area.
Such a statement is just idiotic and it shows how immature some people can be.
In fact, Irwan suggested that the temple’s entrance should face Banting.
Tengku Adnan told Perkasa to stop playing up such issues which was utterly ridiculous.
It is people with this type of mentality which is holding back development in Malaysia. Would Irwan think that building a Hindu temple would increase the Hindus in Putrajaya?
It is as if Perkasa has no issues to play up anymore that they find every chance to make a statement, no matter how stupid, illogical or idiotic it can be.
It goes to show the intention of Perkasa. Are they championing rights of the Malays or just the ideologies of its leaders like Irwan and president Datuk Ibrahim Ali?
