The fracas at the Sri Maha Mariamman temple in Subang Jaya this morning was not a racial clash, said the temple's priest S Jayakumar.

"I appeal to all quarters, including Hindus in Malaysia, to be patient and not make provocative statements on social media.

"I wish to stress it was not a racial riot but the cruel action of those who want to demolish this temple," he told Malaysiakini.
