PAS Youth chief Muhammad Khalil Abdul Hadi has warned against “strong” domestic and international lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) movements, citing reactions towards the recent caning of two women in Terengganu. He claimed that the international press decided to make the caning punishment against the two for attempted lesbian sex a bigger focus, despite other more pressing issues within Malaysia.  “We saw how organizations including the BBC and The Guardian reacted to the sentencing and the carrying out of the sentence by the Terengganu Shariah Court,” he said, referring to two United Kingdom-based news outlets. “Thus we should remember that we will be faced with such challenges from the enemies of Islam around the world,” he added in his closing speech during PAS’ 64th muktamar, or annual congress.
