A 96-second video of an apparent homophobic attack has been circulating in Malaysia this week. A group of individuals verbally abuse, then violently attack, two men. The group accused the two of having a sexual encounter in a car. A Malaysia-based LGBTI rights groupThe Pelangi Campaign, has called for a thorough investigation. Numan Afifi, the group’s president, said that incident should be investigated as a hate crime. ‘This is not the first case of violence against the LGBTQ community,’ he said on Thursday (27 December).
