KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA, July 29, 2001: The Malaysia Hindu Sangam will organize The Millennium Symposium on the Future of Hinduism on Aug 12 in what the organizers describe as "a clarion call to take action to save our culture and religious heritage." "From the sociological point of view, we are losing our culture and religious heritage at an incredible rate," said Malaysia Hindu Sangam president A. Vaithilingam. He said children of the Hindu faith were growing up mindlessly imbibing only "television values," which were devoid of depth, morality or spirituality. The symposium, Vaithilingam said, while imparting knowledge of practical use to Hindus, would also outline an action program called ATMAH, or Action To Mobilize All Hindus. It will be held at the Kalamandapam auditorium of Sri Karthaswami Temple at Lorong Scott in Brickfields here. Vaithilingam said participants would comprise mainly business executives and professionals. For more information, email
