KLANG: More than 1,000 people took part in a rally to “seek justice” for fireman Muhammad Adib Mohd Kassim, who died last week as a result of injuries sustained during a riot at the Seafield temple in USJ25 on Nov 27.

The rally, organised by Gerakan Rakyat Malaysia (Geras), began at the mosque in Klang town about 5pm and headed to the Dataran Seni Klang 500m away.

The participants shouted “Hidup Islam, Hidup Melayu”.

Geras secretary Wan Asshima Kamaruddin demanded that Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department P Waytha Moorthy be sacked from his post.

The organisers also wanted action to be taken against Human Resources Minister M Kulasegaran and Selangor exco member V Ganabatirau for their role in the temple dispute and subsequent riots.

The rally participants also conducted prayers for Adib and passed the hat around to collect funds for his family.

Police kept an eye on the participants to ensure nothing untoward happened.
