Singapore, Nov 28 (UNI) Malaysia has warned Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi against interfering in Malaysian politics, according to a report published today in the Malaysiakini.com.

The warning was given by Malaysian Minister Mohamad Nazri Abdul Aziz following reports on Mr Karunanidhi's comments about last Sunday rally by ethnic Indians who were being marginalised in Malaysia.

The reports said Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had also been urged to take immediate action on the treatment meted out to the Indian origin citizens of Malaysia.

Meanwhile, 89 people were today charged with illegal assembly at the Selayang Sessions Court and the Kuala Lumpur Magistrates' Court following their arrest in the Hindraf rally on Sunday.

The rally was attended by almost 10,000 Indian origin Malaysians who vowed to hand over a petition to the British High Commission for failing of the former colonial masters in securing their well-being in Malaysia.

Some of the leaders had filed a 4 trillion dollar compensation claim suit in London against the British government for discrimination in their adopted country, where their fore-fathers were brought in as labourers in the 1800s.

The Malaysian national news agency Bernama reported that the Attorney-General's Chambers today applied for a revision of a Session Court's decision to free Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) leaders of a sedition charge.

The court is expected to hear the application next week.

Last Friday, three Hindraf leaders P Uthaya Kumar (46), P Wartha Moorty (41) and V Ganabati Rao (34) were charged with making seditious remarks in Tamil Kuala Selangor on November 16.

On Monday, the Klang Session Court Judge Zunaidah Mohamad Idris, however, granted them a discharge not amounting to an acquittal after ruling that the charge was unclear because the prosecution did not attach transcripts of the alleged seditious remarks in Tamil.
