TAWAU: Religious institutions such as temples play a role in educating the Indian community regarding integrity and anti-corruption, said Sabah Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Director Datuk Karunanithy Y Subbiah.

According to him, this is important in ensuring that temple management complies with all regulations and manages finances well.

“This is a preventive measure against the occurrence of corruption, abuse of power and malpractice in the management of religious institutions,” he said in conjunction with an engagement session with members of the Thirumurugan Tawau Temple Management Committee.

The session was attended by four Temple committee members, namely Temple Trustees Supramaniam s/o Arunasalam and Dr Kesavaa s/o Vasuthaven as well as Treasurer, Kamalanathan s/o Supramaniam and Secretary, Devi d/o Ananth.

He added that the engagement session was aimed at building good relations with the key communicators of religion, especially the Hindus in the district.

In addition, it was also an initiative to discuss corruption prevention programmes involving the Indian community in Tawau in the future.

He also presented the Thevaram Book which contains sacred songs for the use of the Indian community in Tawau.
