Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin called for tougher laws in Asean countries to act against hate speech, including harassments over one’s sexual orientation.

Ironically, this comes just days after Putrajaya announced the possibility of there being harsher laws under the Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act 1965 or Act 355 against lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgenders (LGBT).

But Muhyiddin now says Asean countries should consider enacting stronger laws to protect the community against hate speech, meaning, gays and lesbians do have rights.

This means Muhyiddin does recognise the right for gays and lesbians to exist, contrary to Ahmad’s claim that the LGBT community was “committing offenses” by “going against norms.”


PETALING JAYA: Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin called for tougher laws in Asean countries to act against hate speech, including harassments over one’s sexual orientation.

Ironically, this comes just days after Putrajaya announced the possibility of there being harsher laws under the Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act 1965 or Act 355 against lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgenders (LGBT).




On Tuesday, Deputy Minister in Prime Minister’s Department (Religious Affairs) Ahmad Marzuk Shaary said it was hoped that the amendment to the Act, meant to ‘cure’ the LGBT community, would have an impact on its members.

This means the LGBT community is ‘not recognised’ in Malaysia and has no rights in this country. Fair enough.

But Muhyiddin now says Asean countries should consider enacting stronger laws to protect those with different sexual orientations against hate speech, meaning, gays and lesbians also have rights.

He added that some form of punishment could also be carried out for any speech that promotes violence or attacks, whether physical or verbal.

This means Muhyiddin does recognise the right for gays and lesbians to exist, contrary to Ahmad’s claim that the LGBT community was “committing offenses” by “going against norms.”

So which is which?
