Malaysia: Hindu Temple Razed

The Times of India reports that on November 30, contractors appointed by the Universiti Teknologi Malaysia bulldozed a hundred-year-old Hindu temple situated on a plantation owned by the University, after obtaining a court order for the vacation of the temple premises.  The demolition occurred without protests or demonstrations at the site, and the state government arranged to move the deities to another location.  Various attempts to save the temple have been made since 1992, the year in which the university first claimed the land.
