Kuala Lumpur, May 15 (ANI): Temples in Malaysia should be used to unite the Malay Indian community, the Tamil Nesan quoted Malaysian Indian Congress (MIC) secretary-general Dr. S. Subramaniam, as saying.

He also said it was important that those holding positions in temple committees have the respect of the community and also be accepted by all.
