Kuala Lumpur, Aug 19 (ANI): Pictures of a semi-dressed young Caucasian woman supposedly praying at the Kek Lok Si Temple has left temple trustees furious.
The trustees have denied that the pictures, being circulated through an email, were shot inside their temple, and have claimed that it is the work of some mischievous people, who are trying to tarnish their name.
The 12 e-mail pictures show the young woman clad in a blouse and short skirt, exposing her panties and breasts while performing prayers.
Temple trustee Datuk Steven Ooi said that they were aware of the claims, but ruled out that the pictures were shot inside the temple.
"Someone is out to smear the good name of the temple, which is one of the state's popular tourist attractions," the Star Online quoted him as saying.
Ooi said that a comparison of the pictures with the temple's internal and external features, including the Buddha statues, showed that they could not have been taken at the Kek Lok Si Temple.
"It is almost impossible for the woman to pull off such a stunt inside the temple because it is busy with visitors, nuns and monks most of the time," he added.
Ooi said that the temple would not make a police report because they did not want to be dragged into a controversy. (ANI)
