Malaysia’s Government has endorsed gay conversion therapy after federal authorities claimed sexual orientation can be changed with extensive training.
A video produced by a Malaysian government department explains how Muslims can change their approach to the gay community so that it does not promote hate against a minority.
The video has sparked anger for its suggestion that sexuality can be “cured”.
In Malaysia, LGBT rights are largely unrecognised; sodomy remains a criminal activity under British Empire colonial era law.
Thinking of a holiday there? Perhaps somewhere else would be more appropriate.
