A CIVIL society group leader has accused the authorities of practising double-standards in arresting writer Uthaya Sankar over his comments on polygamy involving Prophet Muhammad.

Global Human Rights Federation (GHRF) president S. Shashi Kumar said police were quick to arrest Uthaya but did not act similarly against controversial preacher Syakir Nasoha, who had made deprecatory comments about non-Muslims.

  • Glad to see someone fighting for justice. Only when the law keepers act fairly will we have peace in this country. Pray the king will be a king for the people and act fairly and not only a king for one religion.
