Muslims in Asia Protest Trump’s Beit-ul-Moqaddas Plan

Thousands of protesters in Muslim-majority countries in Asia rallied on Friday to condemn the US decision to recognize Beit-ul-Moqaddas as Israel’s capital, as authorities tightened security outside US embassies.

Leaders in Indonesia, Malaysia and Pakistan have joined a global chorus of condemnation of President Donald Trump’s decision, Reuters reported.

In Malaysia, protesters gathered in front of the American Embassy in the capital, Kuala Lumpur. “Mr President, this is an illegal announcement. Beit-ul-Moqaddas is an occupied territory,” Minister for Youth and Sports Khairy Jamaluddin said through a loudspeaker towards the embassy.

Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak on Thursday called on Muslims worldwide to strongly oppose any recognition of Beit-ul-Moqaddas as Israel’s capital.

In Indonesia, hundreds of demonstrators mostly clad in white rallied outside the US Embassy in Jakarta, capital of the world’s biggest Muslim-majority country. At least two Palestinian has been killed and hundreds injured as "Day of Rage" protests continue across the occupied West Bank, East Beit-ul-Moqaddas and the Gaza Strip.
