We need your support to Save Vivekananda Ashramam Brickfields from losing its heritage and from being defaced.
The Star 16 Oct 2014 brought the shocking news that the 110 year old Vivekananda Ashramam in Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur Malaysia will be redeveloped with a 23 storey residential tower built over it. The reason sighted by the Trustees who made this horrendous decision is for MONEY. Money to carry out the Trustees noble program to better serve the community in the true spirit of Vivekananda's true teachings. The unanswered question is how much MONEY do they need to fulfill their objectives? Did the Trustees look at other options to raise the MONEY? Didn't the Trustees realize all the MONEY will not save a heritage left behind by our forefathers? Does putting a ugly looking residential tower over the building amount to saving our heritage? How many heritage sites do we need to destroy all because we have in our midst MONEY mongers who are not interested in engaging stakeholders to look at other viable options? Why the secrecy in closing this deal without a public discourse? All Malaysians who want to save our historical sites for future generations need to support this move to save the Ashramam. All followers of Swami Vivekananda's teachings across the world need to weigh in to stop these Trustees from executing their despicable plan. WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT PLEASE!!!
