“Moderation is the best solution versus Extremism”

In the wake of recent brutal shooting of journos of Paris-based left wing caricature weekly Charlie Hedbo, many quarters especially were quick to give a blanket blame that Muslims as being intolerant, anti-freedom of expression and resort to extremism.

The fact is that, some people especially in west took the democratic principle of freedom of expression to the extreme end, which include the right to criticise and insult Islam and personalities revered by Muslims aka Prophet Muhammad SAW.

Foreign Minister Dato’ Seri Anifah Aman addressed the United Nations 67th General Assembly more than two years ago, having  to include the current issue at hand and the Muslims were wrongly portrayed for the stance and values, as his theme.

“Why is it when Muslims are stigmatised, it is defended as ‘Fredoom of Speech'”?

The fact this was raised more than two years ago is still very much relevant on present day.

Foreign Minister Anifah described those who intentionally provoke the 2 billion Muslims with materials and issues such as the one did by Chalrse Hebdo or other work of arts, as  “Extremist”.
