Amanah communications director Khalid Abdul Samad said today the committee would enable the community to express its rights more widely.
“If they circulate only among themselves, their voice will have limited scope and the other communities may be unable to give them attention and solve their problems. In Amanah, which comprises members of various communities, we have set up the special committee through the cooperation of the Indian Muslim members to carry their voice far, even to Parliament,” he said to reporters after opening the Kuala Lumpur Federal Territory Strata Community Mediation Centre here.
The committee would also be a draw for more members of the Indian Muslim community to join Amanah, he said.
Meanwhile, the committee chief, Noorul Hassan Saul Hamed, said about 5,000 Indian Muslims had joined Amanah following the setting up of the committee.
“We hope to have up to 20,000 Indian Muslims join Amanah by the end of this year,” he said.
