Penang Hindu authorities on the lookout for spray-painting vigilantes
The Penang Hindu Endowment Board (PHEB) will be on the lookout for spray-painting vigilantes, come Thaipusam.
PHEB chairperson P Ramasamy said the board would be meeting the police next week and speak about the 'Thaipusam Spraying group', which is out to create trouble.
"We have never had issues with women dressing inappropriately during Thaipusam.
"Why is there, suddenly, this group calling themselves vigilantes, who want to spray paint on women?" asked the Penang Deputy Chief Minister II.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
