KUALA LUMPUR: Umno divisions have reported that up to 170,000 members might be willing to attend the planned Red Shirts rally on September 16.unnamed (3)

The figure is the response reported to Umno at a meeting held at Umno headquarters last week in preparation for the rally, called Himpunan Rakyat Bersatu.

However, the Red Shirts rally, called Himpunan Maruah Melayu or Kebangkitan Maruah Melayu (Malay pride uprising), is being called by anonymous groups and it was not clear if the Umno meeting was in relation to this rally.

Although Umno president Najib Razak has said that Umno was not officially involved with “Himpunan Kebangkitan Rakyat”, Umno members however were free to participate on their own.

Later on Saturday, former Malacca Mohd Ali Rustam, who is head of the Pesaka, the national silat federation, said his group was organising the Himpunan Rakyat Bersatu, to be held at Padang Merbok. He disavowed any link to the Red Shirts and said the Padang Merbok rally was open to all Malaysians and warned off those who were “racially angry”.

Umno executive secretary Ab Rauf Yusoh confirmed that a meeting about the rally was held at Umno headquarters and also confirmed that an image of the letter sent to Malaysia Today was genuine. “It is true. The meeting was for the early preparation in case the organiser invited us,” he said.

The biggest response reported to party headquarters is a possible 30,000 from Umno members in Felda settlements, while the smallest response is from Sabah where only 261 in three of the 25 divisions reported their willingness to attend.

The next best response was from 21 of 22 Selangor divisions, with 29,200; Perak with 15,100 from 19 out of 24 divisions; Kelantan 16,500 from 12 of 14 divisions; Pahang 14,500 from 12 of 14 divisions; Kuala Lumpur 12,000 from nine of 13 divisions; and Johor 11,350 from 20 of 26 divisions.

Ab Rauf acknowledged that some Umno divisional leaders who represent their NGOs would be taking part in the rally. Umno members would be permitted to attend the demonstration as long as they comply with the law, he said.

A list of responses obtained by Free Malaysia Today shows the responses from 139 Umno divisions and two NGOs. They are:
