Posted by

Epigraph: We (Allah) made you (the Muslims) an exalted people and a nation of the middle course, that you may be guardians over mankind and the Messenger may be a guardian over you. (Al Quran 2:144)

Ban Ki-moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations with the Malaysian Prime Minister

UNITED NATIONS: Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak pleaded Saturday for Muslims to unite against extremism, warning that sectarian violence risked tearing the Islamic world apart.

“I believe the greatest threat to Muslims today comes not from the outside world, but from within,” he told the UN General Assembly.

Najib voiced outrage at violence between the Sunni and Shia sects in Syria, Iraq and Pakistan, noting that nearly 5,000 Muslims died in conflict in the three countries in the holy month of Ramzan.

“It is time to end the killing and concentrate instead on building a common agenda for peace and prosperity,” he said.

“I believe that peace-loving Muslims – the overwhelming majority of Muslims – should unite against the extremists who use our religion as an excuse to commit violence.” “Our task is to reclaim our faith by articulating clearly the true nature of Islam – the religion of peace, of moderation, of tolerance,” he added.

    Allah says in Qur’an ” Lima Taquloona Mala Taf-a-loon” PM should promote himself in lines of Quranic teachings.

    In the Name of Allah the Most Gracious Ever Merciful
    At least good speech, we congratulate PM of Malaysia for thinking on the write track, let us hope for a good time and let us hope for beginning of a new era of hope. We hope that he will address the situation in his own home land. Allah may empower him with angles to be true to his words.

    All advocate and long for peace in the world. Make loud claims that Muslims should unite – all sects. Nut Nobody has put forward the Solution. Be it known,
    loud and clear that “Repentance and the acceptance of the Imam of the Age- The Promised Messiah and Mehdi lies the solution.”

    It is a bolt from the blue the new revelation of Malayesian PM, Najib Razak who is advocating to fight against terrorism with concerted effort of all Muslim sects, when Muslim leaders of other countries are standing boggled. If Mr. Razak is sincere in his views, he should dare to move a resolution to this effect in the World Islamic Organization, which has arrogantly declared the minority Ahmadiyya Muslim sect as non-muslims violating as the Islamic teachings. May Allah reward the Hon. Prime Minister for his noble thought.
