Lawyer Adnan Seman, who appeared for Malay rights group Perkasa that acted as an intervenor, said Justice Datin Azizah Nawawi found that Hindraf erred by failing to make Dr Zakir a party to the action.

He added that the judge said it was imperative to involve the preacher as any decision in the case would “have an immediate impact on his life.”
