(The Malaysian Insider) - The lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community along with liberalism and pluralism were today branded as enemies of Islam by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak in front of a crowd of over 14,000 imams and mosque committee members from across the nation.
“LGBTs, pluralism, liberalism ― all these ‘isms’ are against Islam and it is compulsory for us to fight these,” he said.
The event, organised by the Prime Minister’s Department, started off with the Islamic Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharom saying that imams must defend the government against these threats.
“Working as a minister in the Prime Minister’s Department today, there are so many attacks on our religion. LGBTs, pluralism, liberalism, Seksualiti Merdeka. We must stand strong and defend the government,” he said.
