JOHOR BARU: Those speaking at the anti-Icerd (International Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Racial Discrimination) rally have been reminded not to go overboard during their speeches.

Home Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said that they were aware of the number of speakers and a permit has been given to the organisers.

"However, I hope everything is done in accordance with the law.

“I have spoken in the past at a Bersih gathering and everything was peaceful.

“The most important thing is to maintain peace,” he said, adding that the police have been directed to ensure everything goes smoothly during the gathering.

Muhyiddin added that there were discussions between the police and the organisers on the locations to gather and other matters to prevent any untoward incidents.

He was speaking to reporters after opening the Johor Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Pribumi) state convention here Saturday (Dec 8).

The rally is aimed at celebrating the non-ratification of the United Nations covenant.

Six main roads around Dataran Merdeka have been closed since 6am for the rally, which is expected to be held from 2pm to 6pm today.

The affected roads are Jalan Hishamuddin (before the tunnel), Leboh Pasar, Jalan Tun Perak (from Masjid Jamek LRT station onwards), Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman (near Sogo), Jalan Raja Laut (near Summit Hotel) and Bulatan Dato Onn.
