On Friday twitter removed the former Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad tweet where he glorifyed the attack in France.

This tweet became viral after the French Government and French PM Macron criticised by the knife attack a woman and killing of two others.

The last tweet of Mahathir was
"Since you have blamed all Muslims and the Muslims’ religion for what was done by one angry person, the Muslims have a right to punish the French. The boycott cannot compensate the wrongs committed by the French all these years" and immediately twitter deleted it.

This problem began when an a knife-wielding Tunisian man shouting "Allahu Akbar" (God is Greatest) ahead of a woman and killed two other people in a church in the French city before being shot and taken away by police on thursday.

Macron started to define the cartoons and the right to mock religion, sparking widespread anger against France in the Islamic world and several campaigns took in Muslim-majority countries to boycott French products.
