PETALING JAYA: Police are investigating Friday's protest against the relocation of a Hindu temple under the Sedition Act.
Selangor police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar said they would be calling those who were involved for questioning.
"We have identified those involved in Friday’s incident and will be recording their statements,” he said.
He also warned that police would not hesitate to take stern action against anyone out to create racial tension.
On Friday, the protesters, numbering 50, marched some 300m from the state mosque to the state secretariat building in Shah Alam.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak had asked the Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan to investigate the protest against the proposed relocation of a Hindu temple in Shah Alam.
DCP Khalid said he has instructed the Shah Alam OCPD to monitor the situation and to act accordingly.
He said police would not take sides and would ensure peace and security prevailed at all times.
The Selangor government, meanwhile, condemned the protest.
Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim said the state regretted the provocative, offensive action taken by the group.
"It is indeed appalling that such religious intolerance still exists amongst fellow Malaysians," he said.
