A new rap video performed by Arvind Raj, Pele L, Touche and others has hit 35,000 views in just two days.
Produced by Music Kitchen, the rap performance titled Melayu, Cina, India is a collaboration among people of various ethnic backgrounds.
The release of the video comes in the aftermath of the attack on a temple in Seafield and ahead of two major rallies in the Klang Valley on 8 December – one by the Human Rights Commission of Malaysia (Suhakam) to celebrate 70 years of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and another by Umno and Pas to oppose the UN Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination.
Suhakam has since announced that it was calling off its rally on 8 December, upon the advice of the police. It insteead postponed it by 24 hours to Sunday, 9 December. The festival time and programme will generally remain the same, with minor changes only.
