Home Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin held a press conference on Wednesday on the riots that broke out at the Seafield Sri Maha Mariamman Temple in USJ 25 earlier this week. He said the incidents were not racial but stemmed from a dispute between One City Development and the temple administration committee over ownership of the land on which the temple stands. Muhyiddin also revealed that the developer’s lawyers hired a group of Malay thugs to “take control” of the situation at the temple which has been slated for demolition.
