Malaysian Minister of Communications and Multimedia Saifuddin Abdullah urges social media platforms providers, and local and international media to refrain from being biased against the Palestinians.
“Certain social media platforms appear to be biased; they easily censor content that supports the Palestinian struggle.
“I urge all telecommunications service providers and media platforms, both locally and internationally, to work together to improve connectivity and proactively and ensure that the information disseminated is authentic, fair, and equitable,” he said in a press statement yesterday, in conjunction with World Telecommunication and Information Society Day (WTISD).
He also added he dedicated today’s occasion to the Palestinian cause.
“I pray for peace and for Israel’s atrocities against them to cease immediately.
“As Muslims and citizens of the world who uphold truth, justice, and peace, we must comprehensively and consistently continue to support the Palestinian struggle, especially when the Israeli regime escalates its violence against innocent civilians, as it does now.”
The Minister also express delight with the role and aspirations of a new generation of Palestinian fighters and activists who have mobilized new approaches; for example, those who refer to Israel as an apartheid state.
