KUALA LUMPUR: The politicisation of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) issue should be resisted as it could affect faith of the future generation, said Fiqh Contemporary Studies Centre chairman Nasharudin Mat Isa.
He said the issue was beyond politics as the LGBT was against the norms of the society.
"We must not pursue development to the extend of indulging in a negative Western culture," he told reporters after presenting a paper at a discourse on the LGBT organised by Pertubuhan Muafakat Sejahtera Masyarakat Malaysia here today.
Nasharudin, who is former PAS deputy president, said the sexual perversion could spread and invite the wrath of God if not contained.
"The sexual disorder can become cancerous that will spread and threaten and destroy the fabric of the society," he said.
He said all quarters should work together to ensure that the younger generation, who would be future leaders, would not develop LGBT tendencies to ensure that the country would be led by people of good and commendable character.
Federal Territories Islamic Religious Council's Legal Bureau committee member Mahamad Naser Disa said all parties should uphold the teachings of Islam and defend the religion against blasphemy and sacrilege by the LGBT group.
He deplored attempts by certain quarters to come to the defence of the LGBT group by clamouring in support of their rights.
"This is like popularising the perverted group by coming to their defence despite the sexual orientation is forbidden by all religions and against the law," he said. -- BERNAMA
