84 Hindu temples in green zones allowed to re-open on June 10

KUALA LUMPUR (May 27): A total of 84 Hindu temples in the green zones are allowed to re-open on June 10 and Malaysia Hindu Sangam (MHS) will soon announce the list of the temples.

In a statement on its website May 23, MHS president Datuk R. S. Mohan Shan said MHS was also allowed by the Ministry of Unity to submit more names of temples in the green zones by early June 2020.

He said the Hindu temples which are allowed to re-open on June 10 will only operate for public two days in a week on Fridays and Saturdays, from 6pm – 9pm only.

Mohan Shan said these temples are subjected to strict Standing Operating Procedures (SOP) as stipulated by the Ministry of Unity.

“Echoing this, Malaysia Hindu Sangam after consultation with Temple Management Committees, have also prepared detailed step by step SOP to be followed by temples to get themselves prepared before re-opening.

“The Temple Management Committees should take serious note that, permission to open their temples will be revoked by the authorities if they violate the stipulated SOP,” he said.

Mohan Shan added that marriage ceremonies at temples are still prohibited until further announcement is made by the authorities.
