Former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad today laid bare the repercussions of the 9/11 attacks on America, labelling it as the worst man-made disaster for the world since the end of the last World War in 1945.
He said the events of 9/11 had resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Iraqis and Afghans as well as a few thousand American and British soldiers, besides causing devastation to two Muslim countries .
“It has divided the world into Muslim and non-Muslim, and sowed the seeds of suspicion and hatred between them,” he said, adding that it had also undermined the security of nations which had to spend trillions of dollars on security measures.
