KUCHING – Malaysia has called for relentless commitment from Muslim countries in dealing with terrorism and violent extremism as well as fighting Daesh.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak quoted the continued death and destruction in Iraq and Syria, Daesh attack on Marawi, the Philippines, and the humanitarian tragedy in Rakhine State, Myanmar.
“The scale of suffering and strife that has taken place cannot be allowed to go unchecked.
“As Muslims, we are enjoined to fight injustice and evil, and this is a sacred duty that we are tasked with,” he said at the 13th World Islamic Economic Forum (WIEF) here today.
Najib, who is also the patron of WIEF Foundation, said Muslim countries across the international community and the Islamic World, have a role to play in dealing with the challenges. — Bernama
