Drizzling rain coincided with the spirit of justice as concerned Malaysians gathered in Kamunting on 7 June 2008 for a candlelight vigil against the draconian Internal Security Act (ISA).
All participants gathered at Masjid Jame’ at 7.50 pm before marching 1 km to the Kamunting Detention Camp. It was overwhelmingly heart warming to note that this noble cause transcended racial and religious boundaries as all peace loving Malaysians were united on that night for one cause, that is justice for our fellow Malaysians. All participants waited patiently at the mosque’s compound while waiting for their Muslim friends to finish their Maghrib prayers before proceeding with the walk to the Kamunting Detention Camp.
