  1. Is Malaysia a muslim country, if it is you be very careful and watch your backs

    • I’m a Malaysian, and I’m a Muslim, we lived together peacefully and united despite races, religious (Christian, Buddha, Hindu) and skin colour. We welcome all tourists around the world with full respect, nothing to be feared come to our country Mr Mike Thompson to see how beautiful our country and its people. Thanks
