Kuala Lumpur: Liberal democratic countries of the world keep changing their old and conservative laws with their new generations. Over the past decade, many stricter laws have been abolished across the world for the well being of LGBT community. But it was a sad day in Malaysia as the federal government said that it does not rule out the possibility of amending the law more strictly against the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT)
Making a sound like a radical leader, Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Religious Affairs) Ahmad Marzuk Shaary said that three years imprisonment, RM5,000 fine and six strokes of the cane are not enough punishment for the LGBT.
He clearly indicated that the government will implement harsher law for this community. Malaysia has less than 1 percent of the LGBT community but the government believes that these people are a looming threat to the Malaysian society.
Don’t forget, Malaysia alway took pride as a land of diverse traditions, multicultures, creeds, and many more.
“It is necessary (amendment) and for now we adopt the existing enactment,” Shaary told the media after the handing over of food bank donations by the Federal Territory Islamic Religious Department (Jawi) in Kota Bharu, today.
Shaary also urged people to file reports to the authorities if they have information or see the inverse activities of the group. He said people can report LGBT community even on social media.
He said that authorities will take stern action against ‘unhealthy’ activities of LGBT community.He also pointed out that parents should also keep their eyes on their children’s ‘behaviour’ and activities.
Today, LGBT community is being accepted across the world but Malaysia does not even wish to respect them.
Once Dr Mahathir Mohamad had said homosexuality is a Western behaviour and Malaysia cannot accept the same sex marriage or LGBT rights.
Actually, LGBT is not a Western Culture and it’s a false phenomenon of homophobia made by some radical people and extremist groups. The book called Kamasutra was written by Vatsyayana over two millennia ago and it has a chapter of explicit instructions on gay sex. The history of gay sex in China and Japan during the dynasties also cannot be denied.
