SUBANG JAYA: An application for a place of worship in Pusat Bandar Puchong sparked a debate at the Subang Jaya Municipal Council's full-board meeting yesterday.
The debate was on whether to allow the application from the Local Spiritual Assembly of the Baha'i to use a shoplot in the township as a place of worship.
The debate started after MPSJ president Datuk Adnan Md Ikhsan announced that the council had rejected the application on two grounds.
The first was that there cannot be a change of usage of premises from business to place of worship and the second was that religious bodies must have government recognition.
