Leaked report shows intent to criminalise gay activities

The government should “comprehensively criminalise” activities that promote homosexuality in the country and lay down stringent requirements for registration of civil society organisations, a leaked report reveals. The report by the National Bureau for Non-Governmental Organisations or NGO Bureau shows the government’s intention to clamp stronger shackles on the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Queer (LGBTIQ) activities in the country. “Individuals linked to organisations involved in promoting LGBTIQ activities should be profiled and mechanisms put in place to prevent them from forming other organisations for a similar purpose,” the January 2023 report says.
