Zeinab Badawi speaks to Malaysia’s Minister for Islamic Affairs Mujahid Yusof Rawa.

Malaysia has one of Asia’s most vibrant economies – the result of decades of stability and economic growth. It is also a multi-ethnic, multi-religious federation – but the majority ethnic Muslim Malays dominate the country politically.

Are racial and religious divides threatening Malaysia’s stability and future prospects? There is growing concern that such tensions have been getting worse since a new government took office last year.

Listen to the interview on the BBC website.

I’m not MALAY and I love Malaysia but… the fact that it is a Muslim country and that it is openly hostile to the LGBTQ community, that it is now embracing Sharia Law … raids gay Halloween parties, uses fear and intimidation tactics like in political campaigns …these are the tactics and behaviours of authoritarians and despots—like Russia and other despot countries—well, need I say more?

How can you claim to be good people, but treat people the way you do? And live as though as though you still living in the 7th century? I cannot understand how these men can sleep at night.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
