“Where was there a Malaysian prime minister before this who, when giving a speech, was so eloquent in quoting holy verses from the Quran? Furthermore, Anwar is a Malaysian prime minister who can deliver a sermon during Friday prayers in front of the New York Muslim community,” he writes. “When compared, whether with the previous Malaysian PM or with Muslim leaders from other countries, it is clear that Anwar is an exceptional and rare leader among the world’s Muslim community. As a result, Malaysians, and also those in Indonesia and the Southeast Asian region, should be proud and excited about Anwar’s leadership as “PMX” of Malaysia.”
