Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad announced the formation of a mini-Islamic summit without the Kingdom, social media platforms and comments by tweets that highlighted the decline of the Kingdom’s leadership role in the Arab and Islamic worlds.
The abuses of the Saud regime, especially since Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s rise to power, including the Yemen war, have left the Kingdom losing its historic leadership role.
Tweeters considered that the formation of a mini-Islamic summit not attended by the Kingdom is a natural translation of the terrible decline in the status of the Kingdom and tarnish its reputation for violations and crimes of the regime.
“The Muslim world is not a cheap entertainment organization until it is given the leadership of a reckless teenage child system, cutting off its opponents with a chainsaw, and exaggerating the fateful issues of Muslims such as Palestine, Kashmir and Myanmar,” he tweeted.
Another tweet said the deportation of the Kingdom was a resounding fall for its role and perhaps the beginning of the withdrawal of the Two Holy Mosques.
Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad announced the formation of a five-nation mini-Islamic summit – Malaysia, Qatar, Indonesia, Turkey and Pakistan – and will hold its first meeting on December 19.
He said that these five countries constitute the nucleus of the beginning of broader Islamic cooperation covering many areas facing the Islamic world, such as economic development and defense and the preservation of sovereignty and values of culture, freedom and justice in addition to keeping pace with modern technology.
He explained that the upcoming Kuala Lumpur summit will discuss a new strategy to address the issues facing the Islamic world, including the reasons for its inability to put an end to the ongoing Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people.
Mahathir said in late July that the Islamic civilization could be promoted again with cooperation between Malaysia, Turkey and Pakistan, given the challenges facing Muslim countries in the world.
“By uniting our minds and capabilities, we can advance the great Islamic civilization that once existed, working jointly between Malaysia and Turkey, and in cooperation with Pakistan,” Mahathir told a news conference with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
He said that these Islamic countries should all be developed, and that a country should achieve this goal, and we believe that Turkey is a candidate country in this regard.
He stressed the need for the independence of Islamic countries, expressing confidence that the cooperation between Malaysia and Turkey will save the Islamic nation from the pressures it is facing.
