"A public gathering for the people to show their emotions and desires is one of the natural aspects in a democracy," he added.
Datuk Zaid Ibrahim believes that the police must realize that the public have a right to express their opinions and peaceful assemblies must be tolerated like in any other democracies.
By denying this right, he said Malaysia was reverting to the manners of its colonial masters.
Police arrested more than 20 people and allegedly manhandled MP Tony Pua and other other community leaders.
More than 250 people had gathered to commemorate the anniversary of the Bersih rally.
Zaid argued that the police should not have forcefully dispersed the crowd as a similar rally was held in Ipoh the night before and the police had allowed the event to take place.
He said the police and the higher authorities should not be mistaken that more force will bring an end to future gatherings.... selanjutnya.
