Khir Toyol's Temple Destruction Story - Samy Vellu Tells Toyol To Stop Playing Politics

MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu has told former Selangor Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Khir Toyo to stop making baseless accusations as the reasons for the Barisan Nasional's loss of the state in the general election last month.

"He has said that I gave him the go-ahead to demolish a Hindu temple (at Kampung Rimba Jaya, near Shah Alam) on Nov 15. I wish to clarify that the temple was demolished in mid-October.

"Why didn't he mention that I was the one who pleaded to him and the Prime Minister (Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi) to stop the original planned demolition of the said temple. Don't blame others for your own folly and arrogance," Samy Vellu, the former Works Minister, said in a statement here Tuesday.

In an interview with Malaysiakini, an Internet-based news portal, Khir claimed that Samy Vellu had instructed him to demolish the temple as it was used for gatherings of the Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) supporters.

"Samy Vellu called me on the night of Nov 15 and told me that the Hindraf people had infiltrated the temple and that it must be demolished that night itself," alleged Khir, who was Selangor menteri besar at the time.

"But the temple had already been demolished, with the deities already removed by the end of October and what is there to demolish anyway and why would I ask for a temple which has already been demolished to be demolished again," Samy Vellu retorted Tuesday.

He said Dr Khir should stop looking for scapegoats for the loss of the state to the opposition and take responsibility for "chasing away Indian votes from the BN".

"My request to him is to stop talking about all this and let us rebuild the BN and the component parties to get back the support of the people," he said, adding that he had great respect for Dr Khir's ability as a leader who had really turned around Selangor as a major developing state.

Meanwhile, MIC Information Chief Datuk M. Saravanan, who is also Federal Territories Deputy Minister, was more vocal against Dr Khir, telling the former menteri besar to stop making baseless accusations just to escape responsibility.

"We all know ... the whole world knows how Samy Vellu wanted to stop the demolition of the temple. We are not blind. He pleaded and pleaded but at that time the former menteri besar just refused to listen, not only to the MIC president but also to the prime minister.

"We wanted the demolition deferred but did he listen? He thought Indians were pushovers. He did not give it a second thought. If Samy Vellu has so much power that he could order the demolition of a temple, then why didn't Dr Khir listen to Samy Vellu when Samy Vellu wanted the planned demolition stopped in the first place," said Saravanan.

He said Dr Khir should first apologise to Indians in Selangor for his arrogance while in power and for treating the community as second-class citizens of the country during his tenure as menteri besar.

"We have it on record. Just look at the Tamil Nesan of Oct 31. In a statement, Dr Khir had said that he could not save the temple from being demolished because of a court order ... now he says Samy Vellu instructed him to do so," he said.

Having served as menteri besar of a state which has a multiracial electorate, Saravanan said, Dr Khir should have been more cautious in handling issues which involved race and religion but the former menteri besar was not so during his tenure.

He also told Dr Khir to stop dwelling on issues of the past and justify the wrongs of the past which he said were now haunting him.

Dr Khir had been blamed for the controversial demolition of the Kampung Rimba Jaya Hindu temple in Shah Alam, which caused Indian voters to turn their backs on the BN in the general election.

The incident has been cited by both opposition and BN members as a key factor in influencing the outcome of the March 8 polls.

The BN and Umno took the brunt of the voters' anger over this and other issues, resulting in the state government falling into opposition hands for the first time in election history. Dr Khir then resigned as Selangor Umno chief, and is now leader of the opposition in the state legislative assembly.

"My advice to him would be for him to start afresh. Only we know the damage caused by Dr Khir because of his arrogance. We are the ones facing Indian voters day in, day out. He can talk, he can blame (anyone) but at the end of the day, the community looks at us for answers," said Saravanan. (Bernama)

***** On reading the report about Toyol's accusation I had a feeling that the Toyol's version of the temple demolition didn't quite add up. Samy Vellu's strong rebuttal merely proves it.

It is so difficult to believe that an arrogant umnoputera like Toyol could be ordered around by Semi Value. Either there is something seriously wrong with Toyol's memory or he is trying to push the responsibility for Selangor's humiliating defeat to others, while at the same time hoping to divert the focus of attention from the Balkis debacle by creating a new controversy.

When is the ACA going to get off its butt and investigate the Toyol couple?

I really love this episode. Its what the chinese would call "Kwai Tar Kwai" or the hantu lawan hantu. This tempe loving toyol is such a shameless creature that it disgraces the other toyols that I have busted. Before the 12GE, he boasted his arrogance by terrorising the ordinary bangsa Malaysia while protecting his umnoputras like the disgraced late Zakaria. Now he wants to be the umno youth head. Lets get this delinquent toyol busted and the bonus bust will be his globe trotting mrs toyol of the balkis joint. As for Sam, forget about him, he is in Jurassic park waiting for the Maika members to skin and debone him and turn him into waste fossils.

The Toyol thought he was so powerful that no Indians nor Samy Vellu can touch him. I think he was done in by the Indian deities whose temple he destroyed.

If Semi Value's story is true, then don't forget that he asked both Toyol & Pak Lah not to demolish the temple.
Even if Toyol did not listen, then Pak Lah could have overruled Toyol. However, the temple was demolished & so Pak Lah did not stop it either!
Thus not all the blame should be put at Toyol's feet. Don't forget Mr. Flip-flop!

For 50 years MIC was sleeping and than went into coma last 30 years.
Now it seems they are partially awake and still mostly talking about the past and temples.
Come on assholes you guys got nothing else to talk about other than temples.
Fight for basic rights of Indians or if you want to look at the bigger picture as some guys put it, than fight for the basic rights of all malaysians.
I am tempted to say here fight for Indian rights because just like UMNO/PKR/PAS will look after malays, MCA/Gerakan/DAP will look after chinese. PKR which is largely a malay based party will naturally look first after malay interest while the DAP which is more than largely a chinses based party will definitely look after chinese interest first as evidently being seen in Penang. MIC/PPP keep on banging balls.
One question for the MIC/PPP Indian leaders, or even for that matter, for the Indian Opp MP's. When you all take up Indian issues has it ever seen the light at the end of the tunnel.
I think HINDRAF is the only group that took the Indians issues from the streets of KL to No.10 Downing Street and than to Buckingham Palace and finally to Kamunting!
Which Indian based party leaders has sacrifiesed so much to the extend we are told some of them are so ill.
MIC/PPP pls fold up. You are a fucking waste of time for a very very long time, 50 years. Time to be buried once and for all and join either PAS, PKR or DAP. FULL STOP FOOLS.

Kill Toyol is a crook, No Value is a thief; both are scumbags.

Two vicious cobras fighting it out.
I hope they kill each other off (politically speaking, that is).

Based on the original chronology of events, I think Semi-Value's version is more correct. Toyol is just spouting more self-serving lies, as he has been continuously doing since voters sent him packing on March 8.
