KUANTAN: There should be no compromise with the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community in the country because they clearly oppose the law of God and human nature, says Pahang mufti Abdul Rahman Osman.

He said Malaysia should prevent and curb LGBTs from becoming an epidemic in society as they violated Islamic law.

“This group is cursed by God and those who support the wrongdoings are equally sinning… why do we want to accept and be with them? There is no issue of compromise to allow the LGBT behaviour and actions which are clearly destructive to themselves, religion and society.

“We have to oppose them… but wisely, if we have the power to prevent (the minister, the government) it is easier to do it through law enforcement… not endeavour to understand them instead,” he told Bernama.

He said this when asked to comment on the meeting between Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Mujahid Yusof Rawa and transgender activists a few days ago.

Meanwhile, in Seremban, the Negeri Sembilan Umno Wanita chief Lattefah Aliyaru Kunju said the baseless demands of the LGBT group should be blocked and stopped.

“The rights they are claiming is just the start for the group to gain space in society and perhaps in future, they will ask for more and may also request that a law be drafted specifically for them.

“This should be contained from now so that this problem will not affect the lives of future generations,” she said today.

She said the movement rejected any LGBT claim that was against Islam.
