PUTRAJAYA, Dec 15 ― Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang will jointly spearhead a rally next Friday against the United States’ recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi announced today that the rally will bring together several Islamic non-governmental groups, with Najib and Hadi both scheduled to make key addresses.
“The prime minister will deliver a speech, while (Hadi) will also deliver a speech. A third speech will be delivered by a NGO (non-governmental organisation) representative,” he said.
The rally will be held at the Putra Mosque here on December 22, between 2.30pm and 4pm.
“I urge all Malaysians and NGO leaders, will [sic] gather at the mosque for the rally, regardless of religion,” he said.
Zahid said that the rally will be organised by both Muslim and non-Muslim NGOs in the country.
This would mark the second rally which Najib and Hadi are headlining together.
Last year, both leaders attended a similar rally organised in solidarity with the ethnic Rohingyas who are fleeing Myanmar due to an outbreak of violence there.
