Notice to hold ‘Defending sovereignt­y of Islam’ rally incomplete, says OCPD


KUALA LUMPUR: The notice submitted by the organisers of the ‘Defending Sovereignt­y of Islam’ rally here yesterday was incomplete, said Dang Wangi OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Fahmi Visuvanath­an Abdullah.

He said this was because the organisers, Gerakan Pembela Ummah, failed to submit a permission notice from the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL). Mohd Fahmi added that several documents should have been attached with the notice, including the permission notice from DBKL as venue owner, but this was not done, leaving it defective. “No incidents occurred. “However, the police will evaluate the speeches delivered at the rally to see if the content is against any laws of the country,” he told Bernama here.

Dubbed ‘Gathering 405’, the rally started in the morning at Masjid Jamek but ended abruptly at 3.25pm due to a downpour.
