So what's the practical thing to do, Khalid?

Not practical to scrap Rimba Kiara project, says FT Minister

'We can discuss to scale down the project ...' - Khalid Samad, FT Minister 

Should Taman Tun Dr Ismail residents stage riots, too, to get back their Rimba? After rioting and beating up an on-duty Malay-Muslim fireman half dead (Muhammad Adib transferred from ICU to IJN), the Hindus in USJ now get to keep their temple. 
Or at least that's the promise made to them by P. Waytha Moorthy
Until a permanent solution over the kuil crisis can be found, the Minister of Unity told a press conference after repeatedly saying he had met earlier with Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad yesterday. 
Did Dr M agree to that? 
I don't know but as I see it, Waytha has got to keep his word. He is the former leader of the militant Malaysian Hindu group Hindraf. And a promise made over a holy temple is not the same as promises made in a Pakatan Harapan manifesto that, we all now know after voting them in, need not be fulfilled ... 
Waytha made the promise despite a court order, the involvement of a public listed company and foreign investors, and even as Adib was fighting for his life .. 
Of course, I won't recommend that the TTDI residents stage riots to save Rimba Kiara from being turned into a concrete jungle. The more practical thing to do is to continue engaging Khalid Samad the FT Minister and pray that he would man up. And get your MP, Hannah Yeoh, to play a more active role in defending the park against the developers. She's been awfully quiet.
