PETALING JAYA: The government does not want to put a stop to the anti-Icerd rally on Saturday as doing so goes against democracy, says Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad (pic).

In a video posted on his YouTube page, Dr Mahathir thanked anti-Icerd rally organisers for their support, despite not seeing a need for the rally to take place.

He also told the organisers to assist the police and other enforcement bodies to ensure that no damage will be caused to public property.

"If possible, do not litter. I hope the rally goes smoothly without any chaos and disturbance.

"Let's celebrate democracy together," Dr Mahathir said.

The anti-Icerd rally will take place from 2pm to 6pm on Saturday (Dec 8) along Jalan Raja, Kuala Lumpur.

Earlier, a Human Rights Commission of Malaysia (Suhakam) event celebrating Human Rights Day supposed to take place on the same day was postponed.

Suhakam chairman Tan Sri Razali Ismail said that the police had informed them and the Prime Minister's Office, without divulging further details, on the "serious security risks" arising out of the planned events.

Umno and PAS have said that a total of 500,000 of its members are expected to attend the anti-Icerd rally.
