PUTRAJAYA (Bernama): A total of 30 activists representing 211 non-governmental organisations (NGOs) handed over a memorandum to Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to support Senator P. Waytha Moorthy.

The memorandum asks for him to be retained as a Minister in the Prime Minister's Department.

Lawyer and social activist Siti Kasim, said Waytha Moorthy should not be blamed for the riot at the Seafield  Sri Maha Mariamman Temple, Subang Jaya last month.

“We hope the Prime Minister does not bow to the demands of racial and religious groups seeking to aggravate the situation," she told reporters outside the Perdana Putra building here on Monday (Dec 24).

The memorandum was submitted to the Prime Minister's Political Secretary Abu Bakar Yahya.

There have been demands for the National Solidarity and Social Welfare Minister to resign as a result of his failure to ease racial tension over the riot that killed firefighter Muhammad Adib Mohd Kassim - Bernama
