Marina - We All Answer to Allah

Social activist Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir has spoken out against the show of support by many Malaysians only for the Palestinian people, while ignoring acts of oppression in other parts of the world. 
Explaining that Malaysians must be concerned about violence and oppression in the world regardless of religion, race or country, Marina said although what was happening in Gaza now was most saddening, the oppression occurring in other countries should also not be forgotten because humans were the creation of God and all were equally important.
She urged Malaysians to be concerned about the oppression taking place in Palestine, Syria, Sri Lanka and elsewhere based on fundamental rights and humanity and not based on religion or race.
"I have always supported those who are oppressed, regardless of race and based on human rights. Most world communities, regardless whether they are Muslims, Christians or Jews are supporting Palestine.
"But in Malaysia, we like to say this is only for the Muslims, or that for the non-Muslims... This is actually wrong and should not happen,".
Marina also hoped that Malaysians who wished to comment on any particular issue on social media, such as Facebook or Twitter, would make an effort to understand the issue thoroughly before giving their comments and views, so as to avoid offending others.
