Given the similarities in culture and faith between Turkey and Malaysia, I consider Malaysia to be my second home. In this country, I have had the opportunity to experience many things such as learning and practicing English and Bahasa Melayu during my time at the International Islamic University and the University of Malaya. Being welcomed by Malaysians and having the opportunity to attend both these universities have provided unforgettable memories and experiences.
One of these experiences has been gaining a heightened awareness of global politics. For example, I have learned that there is a growing sense of empathy among Muslim Malaysians toward other Muslims such as Uighurs, Palestinians, Rohingyas and Indian Muslims. This shows there is a desire for unity among Muslims. Hence, Malaysia's efforts in providing a voice for oppressed Muslims are truly worthy of appreciation.
