That's despite the organiser yesterday saying
They said it's just to hand over a memorandum to the PM.
I told myself that I still need to be there as I'm not really happy with just expressing myself over Adib's death in this blog.
True enough, the number of people who stayed back for the gathering after Friday prayers was just less than 500.
The other jemaah were mostly rushing off back to work after prayers.
The participants of the gathering had a short tahlil recital under the hot sun before proceeding to the nearby PMO to hand over their memorandum.
There were some of the usual speeches which were mostly delivered by NGO representatives.
The only politician who delivered a speech was a guy from Amanah who despite calling for the government to take action against Adib's murderers, was jeered by some in the crowd.
There were shouts such as "baruah DAP", "sembang lebih" and "pengampu bodek".
It seemed that the crowd have little tolerance of Pakatan politicians.
Well, I also think that it's because many of the participants are Pas members and they don't really like Amanah people who are previously their fellow party members.
Other than that, everything went well before they wrapped up the gathering about 3pm.
These are some of the pictures that I took at the gathering today;
