KUALA LUMPUR: The Human Rights Day celebration by Suhakam was postponed due to tangible security concerns, says Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun.

The Inspector-General of Police cited security concerns of the event, which is organised by the Human Rights Commission of Malaysia, being held on the same day as the anti-Icerd rally.

"We recommended and advised the organisers not to have the event today.

"They have heeded our advice as there are security concerns," he told a press conference after launching the mass circumcision event at Bukit Aman Mosque on Saturday.

Asked on the specific security concerns, the IGP declined to elaborate further.

The Suhakam event was initially supposed to be held on Saturday with Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad as the guest of honour.

Due to security concerns, it was postponed to Sunday (Dec 9).
