Other protests affecting proposed burial plots
27/01/2006 The Malay Mail

SUBANG JAYA: Here are other recent cases of residents protesting against cemetery projects near their housing areas:

  • Kota Kemuning residents staged a peaceful protest on Jan 22 this year against a proposed cemetery project in their township.

    They claimed the l4-acre land allocated for a Muslim cemetery at Persiaran Anggerik Eria was too close to their houses.

    More than 100 residents staged a peaceful protest in front of the developer's office carrying banners and placards.

  • Members of the Desa Kiara Owners and Residents Association (DKORA) carried out a peaceful protest on Nov 20, 2003, over a proposed graveyard at Jalan Damansara in Kuala Lumpur adjacent to their condominium.

    Some 200 residents gathered at the leisure pool of the condominium holding about 35 placards written in English and Bahasa Melayu with slogans like "Pak Lah, we can count on you to help us", "Where is the respect for the living'?", "Bury the dead else-where, but not here", and "We say no to graveyard, do you care for us?"

  • On Jan 18. 2002. The Malay Mail reported that Tenaga Nasional Berhad's (TNB) land was given to the Petaling Jaya Municipal Council (MPPJ) to extend the area of the current Petaling Jaya Muslim Cemetery which has run out of burial plots.

    The land used to be a buffer between the graveyard and a row of bungalows and terraced houses along part of Jalan 14 that leads to Jalan 229 and part of Jalan 14/53.

    An MPPJ spokesman had confirmed that the land was given to them by TNB and would be used as a Muslim cemetery. When asked why residents were not told or consulted, she declined to comment.
