POLICE FOIL HINDRAF GATHERING AT KAMUNTING

This morning, the police stopped almost 1,000 supporters of HINDRAF who wanted to gather at Kamunting Detention Centre to show the authorities that the 5 HINDRAF leaders who were arrested under ISA was done under malice and ill-fate, since they had only voiced the grievances of the Indian community through peaceful means that the Malaysian Indians had been neglected and marginalised by the government since Independence in 1957.

The families of the detainees were also holding a prayer sessions at a nearby temple.

The police had mobilised water cannons standby at the site and used psychological tactics to frighten the peaceful protesters.

There were no reports of any incident reported.
