A Malaysian mechanic was so annoyed with cars blocking his workshop in the leadup to the Hindu festival of Thaipusam he used a forklift to move them across the street, the Straits Times reports.

Hasan Al Razak uploaded a video on TikTok on 21 January showing a Toyota forklift relocating three vehicles from in front of his business near the Batu Caves in the Malaysian state of Selangor. 

According to the news report, Al Razak says in Malay in the video: “You are welcomed to go to Batu Caves but please do not park in front of my workshop. I have a business to run.”

“This is the consequences of your actions. If there are dents all over your car, don’t get angry at me, okay?” he adds.

The Batu Caves, a popular tourist spot, house a giant golden statue of the Hindu god Murugan. 

Thousands of Hindus visit the caves to pray and perform religious ceremonies for Thaipusam, which fell on 25 January this year. 

The caves are also famous for the 272 steps that lead to the main cave, as well as the cheeky monkeys that frequent the site.

Some commenters on Tiktok said they wished they had a forklift to deal with annoyingly parked cars in their area.
