A PAS MP today said most of the criticisms levelled against the government’s policies on the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community were “biased” and urged the government not to entertain them. Describing the actions by LGBT activists against the government as “prejudiced”, Nik Mohamad Abduh Nik Abdul Aziz (PAS-Bachok) said these individuals were against measures to rehabilitate members of the community to the right path. Nik Abduh said the group may have not read a manual published in 2013 by the Islamic Development Department (Jakim) that explains measures to assist and rehabilitate members of the LGBT community. “They are prejudiced against the positive measures taken by the government, especially Jakim,” he said, adding that the measures were aimed “at saving” the LBGT community.
