Twitter removed a tweet by Malaysia's former prime minister Mahathir Mohamad on Thursday, accusing him of “glorifying violence” in a message that said that Muslims had a right “to kill millions of French people,” shortly after a knife-wielding man killed three people in a church in the French city of Nice.
But irrespective of the religion professed, angry people kill. The French in the course of their history has killed millions of people. Many were Muslims.— Dr Mahathir Mohamad (@chedetofficial) October 29, 2020
11. Macron is not showing that he is civilised. He is very primitive in blaming the religion of Islam and Muslims for the killing of the insulting school teacher. It is not in keeping with the teachings of Islam.— Dr Mahathir Mohamad (@chedetofficial) October 29, 2020
