Don’t be a gay or lesbian: Former Malaysian PM

Muslim majority Malaysia retains its colonial era penal code criminalising sodomy.

Don’t be a gay or lesbian as the whole human race can be wiped out. This is what former Malaysian premier Mahathir Mohamad has to say about what he calls “not natural”.

He said LGBTs were “not natural” for biological reasons.

“Men marrying men,women marrying women… It’s not natural. Just imagine if we all indulge in that. No children. One generation and the whole human race is wiped out,” Mahathir said.

Speaking at a forum “Politics and Business: The Malaysian Connection” here,Mahathir said that once you catered for a specific group such as the LGBT,others would follow suit and ask for more rights too.
