Pro-moderation advocate Tawfik Ismail wants Perkasa president Ibrahim Ali to reveal what he intends to do if he finds out his prayer mat was woven by a gay weaver. “If someone could prove that Ibrahim Ali’s prayer mat was woven by a gay weaver, are his prayers invalid?” he asked. Tawfik was referring to a statement issued by Perkasa on Sunday calling for the public and Putrajaya to boycott companies that support the rights of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community, citing in particular Starbucks chairman Howard Shultz and Microsoft. Perkasa Islamic affairs bureau head Amini Amir Abdullah had also urged Putrajaya to revoke business licenses of such companies.
