Gudwara Sahib Greentown, located along Jalan Hospital is more “secured” now, as the state Government had recently declared the slopes surrounding the Gudwara as reserved land.
The good news was passed on to Chairman, Sarjit Singh by the Executive Councillor for Local Government and Non-Islamic Affairs, Dato’ Dr Mah Hang Soon. According to Sarjit, parishioners now felt “safer” due to the gazetting exercise by the state.
The Gudwara is located on reserved land, however, this does not include the slopes. The size of the gazetted area is 49,000 sq ft.
Earlier Mah disbursed over RM400,000 to 39 Gudwaras and seven NGOs for their activities.
The State Government had given over RM2 million for the Sikh community in Perak since 2009.
