MEDIA STATEMENT

Re: Hindraf Detainee fasts in Solidarity with Jemaah Islamiah and Darul Islamiah Detainees for abolishment of ISA During Month of Ramadan.

This is the fourth week in the Islamic holy month of Ramadan that Hindraf legal adviser P. Uthayakumar (left) - currently in detention without trial and held at Kamunting - is fasting in solidarity with fellow Jemaah Islamiah (JI) and Darul Islamiah (DI) detainees for the abolishment of the obnoxious Internal Security Act (ISA).

P. Uthayakumar hopes Prime Minister Badawi will unconditionally release all ISA detainees - especially the Jemaah Islamiah suspects, some of whom have been detained for seven years now, so that they can celebrate Hari Raya Aidilfitri with their families.
