I'm a young female American wanting to visit Malaysia however I've heard that the Muslim population is sympathetic to Al Queda. I'm worried about being American. What are your feelings on how the majority of Malaysian's feel about Americans, specifically the Muslim population? Thank you

Hi Kei / Michelle,

I'm a Malaysian and a Muslim. Please come to Malaysia, you will be as safe as in your own neighbourhood. It's true that the Muslim are the majority here, but the other 40% of the population are Buddhists, Hindus, Christians, etc. You are free to practice whatever faiths you beleive in.
This year is the Visit Malaysia Year -- we had scheduled plenty of programmes and promotions just for you. Mail me at harun_muhamed@yahoo.com -- I'll be glad to assist you.

Hello , i am a malaysian.It is safe as well as NOT safe to visit Malaysia.If you are black colour , chinese nationals , Bangladeshi or looks like Indonesian or Burmese the local police here WILL stop you and question you.The malaysian police is very bias towards certain foreigners and looking for easy bribe money.If you are white , they wont bothers you at all.Most police officers here speaks basic English language or nil at all.Special tourist police only available at certain tourist location/s.If really coming to this country.Please ignore all those muslim religious fanatics.Just IGNORE them.Theres good people here too.Beware of nasty taxi drivers upon arrival.Ask your malaysian friend/s about this.

Do NOT carry your valuables in a Handbag.This country is FULL of snatch thieves.And if a stranger is getting TOO friendly.BEWARE !

Terima Kasih.

Zeek808, your views are justified, but do we want to treat others the same way? Of course not. All tourists are safe here, Michelle and Kei the only things u have to worry is the local cab drivers who will try to fleece you down to the last penny.

By and large Malays (99.9% muslim)are friendly engaging people. The real worry is with the government who (at least in the past..when Mahatire M was president))for political purposes, like to incite the Malay (not Chinese or Indian) population with anti-US sentiment. This is quite easy to do as all public press is government censored. Anyway y'all look Canadian to me, and Canadians get along with just about all: Say your Canadian.

His name is spelled Mahathir, and no, he wasn't president. He's the ex-Prime Minister. Big difference. And where did u get that idea that Mahathir was anti-U.S? Anti-Semitic maybe.. Oh btw, our newspapers are NOT government censored.:)

Difference between PM and President? Aren't they both heads of their respective state governments. Blair and Bush in the west represent both positions and except for constitutional framework are in effect doing almost similar jobs. Obviously each country has its own constitution (thanks anyway for the lesson). You apparently have been in Malaysia a long long time if you believe there is a free press (maybe the PAS on the east coast: or Sabah/Sarawak) for Chinese or Indian opponents of the government on the Peninsula. I spent 2 years in Malysia (KL)in the mid 1990s when Mahathir was PM, and for those 2 years he walked on water, cured the sick gave sight to the blind and used the ISA to imprison anyone who spoke out against him. In regards to his attitude towards the US are we talking about the same Mahathir. Did you work for the (Mahathir) government at one time?

To say that Mahathir is president means that the public voted him to be president, and we would have a democratic government instead of a constitutional monarchy (i think). But then again You're right, our press is government controlled (foot in mouth, arrgh). I'm not even working yet, still in high school. hmm, it's funny to see Mahathir from a different perspective especially about the ISA and it's scary in a way. But is he really against the U.S? I don't know about that. I do know that he doesn't like George Soros though. Tq for enlightening me.
