Tow­els and min­eral wa­ter hot items at rally

The Star Malaysia - - Nation -

KUALA LUMPUR: It was a day of brisk busi­ness for most of the traders who set up stalls out­side the Na­tional Mosque, some as early as 4pm on Fri­day.

Azlina Oth­man, who brought 1,200 small tow­els with anti-Icerd slo­gans, each go­ing for RM5, said her mer­chan­dise was sold out by about 1pm.

She said she had or­dered the stock about a week be­fore the rally.

“All three stalls com­pletely ran out of the stock,” she added.

Ma­zlan Ibrahim, who hails from Tumpat, Ke­lan­tan, but now re­sides in Shah Alam, was busy giv­ing out free min­eral wa­ter to rally-go­ers who wanted to per­form their ablu­tion.

He said this was a way for him to show his sup­port.

“I’ve been here since 4am to get a spot,” Ma­zlan added.

Sis­ters Ros­nah and Khat­jah Ar­ishad set up their burger and drinks stall next to one an­other.
