Malaysian opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim on Sunday accused the government of stifling non-Muslims' rights, as his party declared it has begun preparing for the next general elections. Anwar, a former deputy prime minister and an ex-stalwart of the ruling party, also said Malaysia's majority Muslims feel their own rights are threatened by greater clamor among minorities for protection of their rights. "The worrying thing is the Muslims feel their position and their power in religious discourse is eroding. The non-Muslims feel they are being marginalized and discriminated against," said Anwar.
