There must be readiness at the international level to tackle Islamophobia – PM Anwar

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has urged the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to take decisive action in dealing with the issue of Islamophobia.

He said this was among the views he had voiced out personally when receiving a courtesy call from OIC secretary-general Hissein Brahim Taha and his delegation here today.

“Islamophobia is an extreme stance of hatred and anti-Islam which is unreasonable and of insanity because it takes a rather hateful attitude towards all Muslims, and looks down on and insults the religion and beliefs of its followers.

“And so we are asserting that there must be readiness at the international level (on this matter),” he said in a press conference after the courtesy call, which was also attended by Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir and Communications and Digital Minister Fahmi Fadzil.

The prime minister and his delegation arrived here earlier today for a three-day official visit to Saudi Arabia.
