Malaysian Bar Council's 'Walk for Justice', Putrajaya

PDRM roadblocks caused many of us who were driving to the 'Walk for Justice' Protest March by the Malaysian Bar Council to make a detour every time we came to a road leading towards the Palace of Justice in Putrajaya this morning.

I went there with MENJ who snapped thes photos as I was driving. After the 3rd roadblock, I managed to get through after pointing out to the policeman that I was heading to the Masjid Putra.

I understand that the policemen manning the roadblocks were only doing their duty but to have their superiors order such measures against lawyers gathering to march and handover a memorandum was to me just a tad paranoid.

We are talking about lawyers here not social misfits like the Mat Rempits!

I'm bushed now so am just going to share pictures that MENJ took with me.

I had written in detail just now but the computer crashed and the current Blogger system somehow fails to auto -save hence I had to do it all over again. This is why I am sort of tired and am writing sparsely.

Anyway, I'll let the Malaysiakini video and our pictures speak for themselves.

Good night Malaysia!

Salam Mahaguru,

I heard you were around yesterday. Unfortunately fate didn't bring us together.

I must thank you for the support anyway as a member of the bar and a blogger.

Hopefully we will meet up soon.

Wa'alaikumsalam Elviza,

The honor and pleasure of being with our nation's finest in the legal profession was mine as well.

I have always supported the legal practitioners who are truthful and sincere in practicing rightful laws whether those which are those of the Civil or the Syaria Laws.

To not be there with the Malaysian Bar will be a great loss of opportunity to participate in something as important and history in the making as we do not know when we will again get to march for justice in our nation's administrative capital.

Insya Allah, we might get a chance to meet in person one of these days at either any events of All Blogs or our own initiative, the Muslim Bloggers Alliance.

The Malaysian Bar can count on me and the MBA for our support of any worthwhile causes.

Do keep in touch and update me of anything worth knowing.

Thanks for reaching out to me and making contact.

Really appreciate it.

Selamat Berpuasa. @};-
