Kuala Lumpur: In a shocking remark after a terror attack in France, former PM Dr Mahathir Mohamad today said that Muslims have a right to be “angry and kill millions of French people”.
“Muslims have a right to be angry and to kill millions of French people for the massacres of the past,” the tweet read.
Dr M further slammed French President Emmanuel Macron, saying he was blaming Islam for the killing of “insulting” school teacher.
Dr M continued what others saw a vicious rant.
“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,” said.
The comments came hours after an attacker beheaded a woman and killed two others at a Church in France’ Nice city on Thursday.
Earlier, Macron too, had made vitriolic remarks against Islam after the killing of a teacher over showing a controversial cartoon of Prophet Mohamad in France.
