Datuk Jamal Yunos today repeated his pledge that he will rally 300,000 people to counter the Bersih 5 protest planned for November 19. — Picture by Saw Siow FengDatuk Jamal Yunos’s so-called “Red Shirts” movement will hold rival events at every location where Bersih 2.0 will conduct roadshows ahead of its November rally.

The Sungai Besar Umno division chief said his group will also make an additional stop in Penang where they will protest against Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng over his corruption charges.

“We have decided unanimously to go and oppose them (Bersih 2.0). We will go to every location in the roadshows stating this Saturday.

“Our friends from every state, from every race including Indians, Malays and Chinese even Sabah and Sarawakians will join us. We will go the six locations they have announced yesterday,” he told reporters during a press conference at the Putra World Trade Centre today.

The six locations that Bersih plans to visit in its roadshow are Johor Baru, Lumut, Perlis, Kota Baru, Sandakan and Miri.

Jamal today repeated his pledge that he will rally 300,000 people to counter the Bersih 5 protest planned for November 19.

He then claimed to be “reliably” informed that the electoral watchdog group has been infiltrated by Islamic State (IS) militants, but provided no evidence to support his allegation.

“We’ll make a police report. We have trustworthy info that they have been infiltrated by IS and Daesh. We’ll leave it to the authorities to deal with it,” Jamal said.

Jamal also claimed that the Bersih 5 rally would involve the takeover of vital locations such as airports in the manner of protests in Thailand, but again did not provide any evidence to support the allegation.

The Red Shirts alleged that Bersih has moved from being an electoral reform group to being a tool used by the opposition to topple the government.

“Bersih 5 also has no clear objectives, they only bringing issues that confuse the people including 1MDB.

“The Red Shirts version 2 will protect the constitutional democracy in Malaysia and the prime  minister who was elected by the people,” Jamal said.

The Red Shirts rally last September was billed as a gathering to “defend Malay honour”, but was marred by anti-Chinese sentiments from some protesters.

It had also been held in response to the Bersih 4 rally the month before.

  1. The IGP has instructed the police to close their eyes, cover their ears and zipped their mouth on any provocation, threats and even chaos caused by Umno Baru thugs lead by Jamal Yunos . Rosmah Mansor is hell bent in wanting her highly corrupted hubby and kleptocrat to invoke the NSC bill.
