I refer to the recent allegation by DAP Kedah’s Chairman, Thomas Su that certain illegal Hindu and Chinese temples would be demolished by the relevant authority in Kedah. However, Menteri Besar of Kedah, Dato Seri Azizan Abdul Razak had denied the said allegation, including knowledge of such matter by the state government and the relevant local authority.

In view that there were certain purported evidence produced yesterday by Thomas Su to substantiate his allegation, it is important now for the Kedah state government to set up an independent inquiry committee to investigate such allegation and the purported evidence on an immediate basis.

A transparent independent inquiry on this allegation and the purported evidence would be important to clear the name of the PAS-led Kedah state government on this matter.
