PETALING JAYA: The Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has given the green light to the National Silat Federation (Pesaka) to hold a rally at Padang Merbok on Sep 16.

Kuala Lumpur mayor Datuk Mohd Amin Nordin Abd Aziz said that the Federation had applied to use Padang Merbok for the Himpunan Rakyat Bersatu.

“We give approval for Padang Merbok only,” he told The Star Online in a text message.

He also said that Bersih 4 organisers had been offered the same venue for their rally at the end of August.     

On Saturday, it was confirmed that there would only be one rally on Sept 16 organised by the National Silat Federation or Pesaka.

However, those taking part may come in different coloured shirts and not just red or black, the colour to be worn by Pesaka members.

The organiser of the proposed red-shirt rally has now agreed to follow Pesaka’s lead and gather at Padang Merbok.

The group came to the decision following Pesaka president Tan Sri Mohd Ali Rustam’s statement that the federation would go ahead with their rally to protect the sanctity of the National Principles (Rukun Negara).
