Buoyed by the success of the last Malay rights rally against Malaysia ratifying the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, Gerakan Pembela Ummah hopes to repeat it with a protest on Saturday, this time against Malaysia acceding to the Rome Statute. – The Malaysian Insight file pic, April 30, 2019.

DESPITE Putrajaya backing down on ratifying the Rome Statute, a Malay-rights group is going ahead with a protest on Saturday to give voice to what it said is a “growing sense of fear and isolation” felt by the Malay and Muslim community.

Gerakan Pembela Ummah (Ummah) chief secretariat Aminuddin Yahaya said the gathering in Kuala Lumpur will also send a clear message to Putrajaya to not make policies that threaten the rights of the majority.

  • Since when did Malay Muslim need defending? Do we not have a constitution? This is what happens when race and religion gets muddled up in politics. Even the palace is having a go at Tun.

  • Let them rally. Cold shoulder treatment is the best way to deal with all this rally. Exhaust their energy.
