A Hindu Temple was vandalized on 20th June 2019 by a Muslim man who is being described as a habitual offender by the locals.
The case is from Krishna Mandir of Ipoh and the culprit has been apprehended.
Earlier, in March this year, too he had entered the sacred premise in a Temple and attacked window panes behind the Temple’s kitchen area. A report was made, the source tells CurrenTriggers, but due to lack of action by the police the culprit walked free,
The locals suggest that the said man has several complaints against him and during the vandalism at the Krishna Mandir, he also used colorful language and screamed in the middle of the night.

CurrenTriggers requested a statement from Amnesty International Malaysia but so far we received no statement from them.

Desecration attempts against the Hindu Temples have been going on for quite some time often it has taken a top Hindu leader’s interference to bring to light such attempts. In Ipoh’s Krishna Mandir case, this is, unfortunately, not the case.
