A religious lesson for 'Ku Nan'

Over a hundred volunteers and supporters turned up at Jalan Panggong near the iconic Petaling Street street market to show support and solidarity with Dapur Jalanan a weekly soup kitchen for the poor and homeless in the area.

Amongst them were Parliamentarian Tian Chua, Selangor Assembly Assemblyperson Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad.

The event today was an announcement by Federal Territories Minister Tengku Adnan Mansor to move the homeless and beggars from the city's streets and he has threatened to fine those who give money to beggars as well.

He has also put a ban of a radius of two kilometres from the city centre against soup kitchens from operating.
