Hindraf to hold another two assemblies
Kimberley Lau


PETALING JAYA (Dec 27, 2007): Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) is organising another two peaceful assemblies to protest Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Tan Sri Musa Hassan's claims that the organisation is linked with terrorists.

Hindraf coordinator S. Manikavasagam said "we will hand over a memorandum to the Human Rights Commission of Malaysia (Suhakam) to investigate the validity of Musa's statement".On Dec 6, Musa accused Hindraf of soliciting help and support from terrorist groups.

"We want to 'mendesak' (force) and 'mencabar' (challenge) the IGP to present proof for what he said," he said, adding that the handing over of the memorandum will most likely be scheduled for mid-January. He said the accusations were inappropriate, claiming that Hindraf does not have any connections with terrorists.

Manikavasagam, who is also Parti Keadilan Rakyat Supreme Council member, said a second peaceful assembly will also be held in February in Putrajaya.He said a memorandum will be handed directly to the Prime Minister's Department.

Hindraf will apply for permits to hold these assemblies.
