Muslims have a right to kill French people, says Malaysian PM
New Delhi : In the backdrop of recent killings and beheading incidents in France, the Malaysian PM has defended Muslims by saying that 'they have a right to kill French people'.
In his blog post on Thursday, Malaysian PM did not mention about the Nice attack but took reference from the recent incident where a teacher was beheaded outside a school.
"Muslims have a right to be angry and to kill millions of French people for the massacres of the past. But by and large the Muslims have not applied the ‘eye for an eye’ law. Muslims don’t. The French shouldn’t. Instead the French should teach their people to respect other people’s feelings."
He also targeted his gun on France PM Emmanuel Macron by calling him uncivilized and "primitive".
“It is not in keeping with the teachings of Islam. But irrespective of the religion professed, angry people kill. The French in the course of their history has killed millions of people. Many were Muslims,” he wrote.
“Since you have blamed all Muslims and the Muslims’ religion for what was done by one angry person, the Muslims have a right to punish the French,” he said, addressing Macron. “The boycott cannot compensate the wrongs committed by the French all these years,” he added, referring to the call in some Muslim countries to boycott French products.
Pope Francis prayed for the victims of Thursday’s attack in Nice, as the Vatican said terrorism and violence can never be accepted. “Today’s attack has sown death in a place of love and consolation. The Pope is aware of the situation and is close to the mourning Catholic community,” Vatican spokesman Matteo Bruni said.
