UPDATED | NGO Seni Khat Action Team (Sekat) proceeded with its National Jawi Congress in Petaling Jaya today and even got some protesters to join in.

Sekat secretary Arun Doraisamy fulfilled his promise of inviting the protesters to join in when he escorted several representatives from Malay NGO Gelombang Rakyat Malaysia into the hall, led by its president, actress Ellie Suriati Omar.

Their arrival caused a stir inside the hall as activist Siti Kasim, who was speaking at the time, acknowledged their presence but proceeded with her speech.
