Malaysia probably saw its first pro-LGBT march in the country but it has more than that to worry about with a surge in ‘religious’ attacks online Last week was an eventful one for Malaysia, with an LGBT march in Kuala Lumpur, the arrest and jailing of Malaysians for insulting the Prophet of Islam. The country also saw the condemnation of the government for its anti-LGBT stance and for apparently condoning the ‘harsh’ sentencing of the islamophobic offenders. Malaysian Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department in charge of religion Mujahid Yusof Rawa lambasted the LGBT community and civil rights organisations for what he calls “the misuse of the democratic space to defend things that are wrong in the religion of Islam.”
