PETALING JAYA: Former Court of Appeal judge Datuk Seri Hishamudin Yunus has criticised the police for supposedly siding with those who violated the constitutional rights of the people when dealing with racial and religious issues, reported Sin Chew Daily.

Citing a cancelled gathering by educationist group Dong Jiao Zong to discuss the teaching of Jawi calligraphy in vernacular schools and the removal of Chinese New Year decorations at SMK Pusat Bandar Puchong 1, he said there were elements of the police actions which “favoured the offenders”.
