Former Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohammad has said that Muslims have the right to punish the French. He made this comment in a blog post on Thursday. Qatar-based Al Jazeera reported.
France has been mired in controversies since the murder of a history teacher by a Muslim extremist over a caricature of Prophet Muhammad. In this event, Macron announced the continuation of the publication of the Holy Prophet (PBUH). His announcement provoked a strong reaction in the Muslim world. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Macron needed mental treatment for such an attitude towards Islam. On Thursday, three people were killed in a knife attack in a church.
Neeth’s attack is not mentioned in Mahathir’s blog post. Respect others – The title begins with the murder of French teacher Samuel Patti. It has also been published on Twitter. But the post that killed millions of French people has been removed by Twitter.
Mahathir, 95, is an eminent leader in the Muslim world. He says that he believes in freedom of expression but should not use it to insult others.
In a blog post, Mahathir writes that Muslims have the right to resent millions of French people from killings in the past. But the rule of eyes did not apply to the entire Muslims instead of eyes. Muslims did not. The French should not. Instead, the French should teach their people to respect other people’s feelings.
Mahathir accused French President Emmanuel Macron of being rude and primitive. Pointing to that, the Malaysian politician wrote that Muslims have the right to punish the French when the responsibility of an angry person is being applied to the entire Muslim and Muslim religion. The mistake that the French have been doing for so many years will not be compensated by boycott.
Mahathir further writes, this does not have to do with the teachings of Islam. But religion kills angry people regardless. Throughout history, the French people have killed millions. Many of them were Muslims.
Several chiefs, including Pope Francis, Catholic supreme religious leader, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, have condemned Thursday’s attack.
