SHAH ALAM: A group has gathered outside the Shah Alam court complex, ahead of the verdict of the inquest to determine the cause of death of fireman Muhammad Adib Mohd Kassim.

Gagasan Rakyat Malaysia 7 (Geras 7), which champions religion, rulers and Malay interests, were seen dressed in baju Melayu and carrying banners calling for justice for the fireman.

President Abu Bakar Mohamed said the group had four basic demands.

"We are fighting for justice for Adib. We urge Attorney General Tommy Thomas to step down.

"We also urge the government and the opposition to stop playing up racial and religious sentiments," he said at the Shah Alam court complex on Friday (Sept 27).

NGO Ummah is expected to organise a rally to seek justice for Muhammad Adib and to call for the protection of Malay rights.

PAS Youth chief is also expected to be at the court complex and to have a press conference led by its deputy Fadhli Shaari.

Muhammad Adib, 24, became critically injured in the early morning of Nov 27 after he and his team members from the Subang Jaya fire station responded to an emergency call at the Seafield Sri Maha Mariamman Temple where a riot was taking place.

The fireman was taken to SJMC after he was found injured, before being transferred to the National Heart Institute (IJN) for further treatment, where he later died on Dec 17, at 9.41pm.
