The youths chanted "Hidup Melayu" and "Allahuakbar" as they marched towards the temple

Malay Mail reported the group's spokesman as saying that they meant to gather peacefully, and it was not an "attack" on the Indians. 

"We're just here to express ourselves and not for political reasons, we're asking them to not step on the Malays," spokesman Shahrizad Sahak was quoted as saying by Malay Mail. 

"What we are asking is that, do not force us... Do not sideline the Malays," he added.
