Increase Collaboration With Non-Islamic Countries To Tackle Islamophobia - Zahid

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 22 (Bernama) -- Malaysia today called on Islamic nations to be proactive in tackling the problem of Islamophobia faced by the world currently.

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said at the same time, Islamic nations should increase cooperation with non-Islamic nations to correct the latter's misperception of Islam.


Speaking at a news conference after opening the 1st Putrajaya International Security Dialogue, here, he said non-Islamic nations had the wrong perception of Islam due to the actions of a small number of Muslims.

"The actions of this group of Muslims who wrongly interpret Islamic teachings have tarnished the image of Islam," he said.

Ahmad Zahid said international understanding and collaboration to understand the true teachings of Islam should be given attention in order to end Islamophobia.
