Malaysian Government asked to ease entry for Indian priests
Kuala Lumpur, June 30 (ANI): Malaysia Hindu Council chief R. Nadarajah has called on the Government to ease entry of foreign priests into the country.
Nadarajah, who is Sri Maha Mariamman Devasthanam chairman, said they had invited priests and musicians from India to conduct training courses to train locals, but the response has been poor.
He said the younger generation was not interested in becoming priests as it involved the learning of many scriptures and the need to follow a strict discipline.
Furthermore, the income was not encouraging, Nadarajah added.
He said many temples in the country were having problems conducting daily prayers and rituals, solemnisation of marriages and other religious prayers, as they do not have trained priests.
The Star quoted Nadarajah as urging the Home Ministry to look into the problems faced by the temples and make it easier for the recruitment of priests from India. (ANI)
