“How­ever, we will only lead this dis­cus­sion on the con­di­tion that there will no longer be any provo­ca­tion or gath­er­ing at the tem­ple, and all par­ties must abide by the state gov­ern­ment’s or­ders to en­sure the safety and se­cu­rity of all.”

He added that any de­ci­sion re­gard­ing the tem­ple will be put on hold un­til dis­cus­sions be­tween the re­lated par­ties are con­cluded.

The Shah Alam High Court had ear­lier yes­ter­day re­jected a bid by the tem­ple to post­pone the takeover of the land by One City De­vel­op­ment.

On con­cerns that the court’s de­ci­sion would lead to more protests, Amirudin urged the tem­ple task force and com­mit­tee to pre­vent the premises from be­com­ing a cen­tre for in­sti­ga­tion and provo­ca­tion.

“If they want to or­gan­ise prayers, that is okay. But if there are gath­er­ings in­volv­ing speeches, I think the po­lice will take stern ac­tion,” he added.
