Malay Rights Protesters Claim UEC Bad For Nationhood And LGBT Worse Than Child Marriage

07/29/2018 |

Yesterday, 28 July, close to two thousand supporters of Malay political parties and groups attended a rally in Kampung Baru to “defend race and religion.” The organisers of the Himpunan Kebangkitan Ummah (Gathering for Muslim Revival) claimed that the interests of Malay Muslims have eroded since Pakatan Harapan won the polls on 9 May, The Straits Times reported. According to New Straits Times, the assembly, which featured Malay-Muslim groups such as Malaysian Muslim Consumers Association (PPIM), Ikatan Muslimin Malaysia (Isma), and Perkasa, was organised to discuss the topic of ‘New Malaysia post GE14: Malay Muslims Under Threat.’ Some of the protestors in attendance also argued that the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community pose a greater threat to society than child marriages.
