Will the people of UMNO gather at the Penang State Mosque tomorrow?


Many Penangites received SMS, informing all to stay home as there will be a scheduled demostration at the Penang State Mosque. If this would happen, will ISA be used against these people.

The police today warned that the Internal Security Act (ISA) could be invoked against those who participate in tomorrow’s rally in Penang or spread short messaging service (SMS) regarding it.

Acting Penang police chief Salleh Mat Rashid said action could also be taken under Section 27 (5) or 27(5)(a) of the Police Act 1967 for participating in a rally without a permit.

“They can also be arrested under the ISA for jeopardising national security,” he was quoted as saying by

The warning was given to those spreading SMSes regarding a mammoth gathering slated to take place in the state mosque.

The gathering is said to be a follow-up to the one staged outside the Komtar building last Friday in protest of the DAP-led state government’s decision to steer clear of NEP practices. Several former state excos had also participated.

“We would take action against those who continue to spread the SMSes and two police reports had been lodged regarding the matter so far. We are investigating the source of the SMS,” said Salleh.

The police chief said the gathering was against the law because the organisers did not apply for a police permit.

“Only two gatherings would take place tomorrow, the Maulidur Rasul (Prophet Muhammad’s birthday) celebrations at the Seberang Jaya mosque in the morning and at the Kapitan Keling mosque in the evening,” he added.

Salleh said 400 police officers and personnel would be stationed at both the locations.

“We would also take additional security measures, such as deploying personnel at the state mosque to face any eventualities,” he added.

Protest held in Selangor

In Selangor, a protest was held by several hundred people from the Coalition of Selangor Malays at Dataran Shah Alam against the PKR, DAP and PAS state government.

The protest led by Selangor Umno Youth leader Shukur Idrus started at 3pm and ended about an hour later.

They also handed over a memorandum to the Sultan, which was received by his private secretary Mohd Munir Bani who came to the scene.

Among others, the protesters urged newly minted Selangor Menteri Besar Khalid Ibrahim not to go against the wishes of the Sultan regarding the appointment of a deputy menteri besar.

They also called on the state government not to appoint a non-Malay deputy menteri besar and retain the exco composition at 60 percent Malays and 40 percent non-Malays.

The protesters also condemned DAP supremo Lim Kit Siang for allegedly insulting the Malay hegemony.
