I'm rather Appalled by The Hypocrisy Of Ali Rustam and most Government leaders with regards to Seksuality Merdeka. Being Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender is nothing new or unknown to them, they have LGBTs in their immediate families, they have studied and lived the life overseas with maximum exposure but they return here, claiming their allegiance to the most narrow interpretations of Islam to seek political mileage & popularity.

Malacca to amend laws to prosecute homosexuals
ALOR GAJAH: Malacca will amend its state Islamic enactment to prosecute gays and lesbians by applying the same type of Syariah legal mechanism used against deviant Muslim sects.
Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam said homosexuals and lesbians could be tried at the Syariah Court once the enactment was gazetted as Syariah law.
“We will revise the current enactment to specifically deal with homosexuals and lesbians in the state, including groups that promote such uncanny sex,” he said here yesterday.
Mohd Ali, who is also Malacca Islamic Religious Department chairman, said the enactment had to be revised as there was no specific law at present to prosecute such groups.
“We will suggest the enactment to also cover bisexuals and transsexuals,” he said, adding that action could also be taken against any non-governmental organisation promoting and supporting such sexual practices.
“We don't want such unsavoury culture creeping in and damaging the moral fabric of our society,” Mohd Ali said.
Separately, he called on Sisters in Islam to drop the word “Islam” from its name as he claimed the NGO had been frequently issuing contradicting and confusing statements on Islam.
