PETALING JAYA: The DAP has urged all political parties, religious groups and NGOs to set up a “conscious, deliberate and sensitive programme” to send out a signal to the world that Malaysia is not a terrorist centre as claimed by several foreign organisations. 

Its chairman Lim Kit Siang said the groups should formulate a national consensus condemning terrorism.. 

Lim said a White Paper should also be issued to debunk adverse reports by organisations such as the UN Security Council group on Al-Qaeda and the latest report “How the Jemmah Islamiyah Terrorist Network Operates” made by the Brussels-based International Crisis Group. 

“One of the greatest challenges facing Malaysians this year is how to eradicate, in the shortest possible time, the international perception that Malaysia is a so-called terrorist centre,” he said at the opening of the Segambut DAP branch yesterday.
