Silat exponents demolish illegal karaoke centre

KUALA LUMPUR, Sat. - About 50 silat exponents demolished an illegal karaoke centre with their bare hands (pictures above and left) today.

The structure was illegally built on land belonging to Pertubuhan Seni Silat Lincah Malaysia (PSSLM), whose members decided to take the matter literally into their own hands as the local council seemed hesitant to act.

PSSLM chairman Datuk Omardin Mauju said the Selayang Municipal Council had failed to act on the matter even after numerous letters sent by the association.

"They asked us to demolish the structures ourselves. The land belongs to PSSLM and as such it was our responsibility.

"We waited four years for the council to act but nothing was done," he said, after leading his students in demolishing the premises here today.

Omardin said the 1.6ha plot of land was given by former Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abu Hassan Omar in 1999.
