The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

IPOH: Is­lam­o­pho­bia is often seen to be trig­gered when­ever an elec­tion takes place in West­ern coun­tries, said Youth and Sports Min­is­ter Khairy Ja­malud­din. He said can­di­dates and po­lit­i­cal par­ties were likely to make Is­lam a tar­get or cam­paign topic to win the sup­port of vot­ers. “Hence, the rise of ha­tred against Is­lam­o­pho­bia hasn’t sub­sided years af­ter 7/11; in fact, it has be­come more ex­treme,” he said. – Ber­nama
