KL Summit to discuss problems of Muslim community, says Dr M

Mahathir Mohamad in a promotional video for the KL Summit to be held next week.

KUALA LUMPUR: The coming Kuala Lumpur Summit will be a significant platform for Muslim leaders to discuss the current situation faced by the community around the world, Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad said.

He said it has come to the stage where Muslims anywhere and everywhere are being oppressed.

“Muslims are labelled as terrorists, and there is now a fear of Islam. It is quite obvious to everybody that the situation is getting worse.

“On the other hand, that oppression does not seem to worry anyone,” he said in a video uploaded on Twitter today.

The summit will be held at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre from Dec 18 to 21.

“Welcome to Malaysia at the KL Summit 2019,” said Mahathir, who is the chairman of KL Summit 2019.

The Emir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim Hamad Al Thani; Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan; Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani are among the notable Muslim leaders expected to join the summit.
