“Muslims Have Right To Kill Millions of French Citizens”: Malaysian Ex-PM Mahathir

Mahathir said, “When you blame all the Muslims for the wrongdoing of an angry person and blame them, Muslims also have the right to punish the French.” 

 

On Thursday, a terrorist killed three people in a knife attack in France’s Nice. The attack took place in a church. There is anger all over the country on this incident and all are expressing their condolences to France. However, former Prime Minister of Malaysia Mahatir Mohammad has made an outrageous statement supporting the Nice terrorist attack in a way. Mahatir bin Mohammed said that Muslims have the right to kill millions of French citizens.

Without mentioning the Nice attack, Mahathir on Thursday said in a blog post titled ‘Respect others’ that Muslims have the right to be angry and also complete killing millions of French citizens for genocides in the past. He said, France should teach its citizens to take care of other’s feelings. Mahathir referred to the incident of the murder of French teacher Samuel Patty by an 18-year-old boy after the former showed cartoons of the Prophet in class.

Mahathir further slammed French president Emmanuel Macron and called him rude. He attacked Macron and said that it is not right to blame the whole Islam for killing of a teacher who insulted any religion. He said that Macron doesn’t appear decent. Mahathir said, “When you blame all the Muslims for the wrongdoing of an angry person and blame them, Muslims also have the right to punish the French. Just boycotting French goods will not be enough.”

Three people were killed in a knife attack by an assailant in a church on Thursday in Nice, France. Investigating officers said that the attacker has been identified as a citizen of Tunisia. The attacker entered the Church of France with a copy of the Quran in his hand and a knife and then killed three people. This is the third such attack in France in the last two months.

The attacker who carried out the attack at Notre Dam Church was injured while being apprehended by the police and is hospitalized. A bomber rammed a truck into the crowd during the Bastille Day Parade in 2016, a kilometer from the scene of the incident, killing dozens of people. The two police officers did not disclose the name, saying that the attack is believed to have been carried out by the attacker alone.
