Review on decision to use ISA against five Hindu Rights Action Force Leaders

Sisters in Islam strongly urges the Malaysian government to review its decision to use the ISA against five Hindu Rights Action Force leaders. We call for their immediate release.

As a member of the Gabungan Mansuhkan ISA (Abolish ISA Movement), SIS also urges the Human Rights Commission of Malaysia, SUHAKAM to work for the release of the ISA detainees and ensure that they are able to exercise their fundamental rights to a fair and open trial in accordance with the rule of law.

SIS wishes to remind the Malaysian government that the use of the ISA which denies a citizen to defend themselves in a court of law is against the principles of democracy, good governance and the Islam Hadhari that promises a just government, freedom and independence to the people, good quality of life for all and protection of the rights of minority groups.

The use of the ISA clearly contradicts and brings disgrace to the international image of Malaysia, especially since Malaysia sits on the United Nations Human Rights Council.
