GMD in Malaysia
GMD in Malaysia took place on 20 January at Selongor International Islamic University. This year the theme was ‘Genocide in Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir’ being the main goal to highlight the incessant plight, denial of right to life, ethnic cleansing and genocide of Kashmiri Muslims at the hands of Indian occupying forces. The High Commissioner of Pakistan, Mohammad Nafees Zakaria was invited as a guest speaker and said that the choice of theme reflected the deep concern and understanding among the Brethren in Malaysia over challenges confronted by the Muslim Ummah, particularly the Kashmiri people in Jammu and Kashmir under Indian occupation.
