Kuala Lumpur: Former Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad said on Friday that his remarks on attacks by Muslim extremists in France have been removed from context. He was disappointed. Mahathir (95) commented on Thursday on his blog, “France for the angry Muslims and France for the massacre in the east” You have the right to kill hundreds of thousands of people. ”

There was a demand to ban Mahathir on Twitter

Twitter deleted the tweet containing Mahathir’s comment. The company says the violence was proud of it. At the same time, the French digital minister asked the company to ban Mahathir on Twitter. Mahathir said in a statement: “I am disappointed with the misrepresentation of myself and the attempts to distort what I wrote on the blog.”

Mahathir said in the cleanup, people did not read the entire tweet.

He said critics failed to read his last lines, in which he wrote: “However, a large number of Muslims have not adopted the policy of eye for an eye. They don’t. Even the French people shouldn’t. Instead, France should teach its people to respect the feelings of others. “

He said Twitter and Facebook deleted his statement even after clarification. He called the move by social media companies hypocritical. He said: “On the one hand, they defend those who make questionable cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed and expect all Muslims to accept him blindly in the name of freedom of expression.” On the other hand, it has deliberately deleted the claim that Muslims have never talked about revenge in the past. “While that sentence was not removed on Twitter, one of Mahathir’s staff claims that Facebook deleted the entire post.
