A Deputy Prime Minister in Malaysia “told a national counseling conference yesterday that the profession was needed to ‘curb’ the ‘spread’ of LGBT groups.” “The symptoms of sexual orientation disorder like LGBT, which was previously faced by the Western society are now faced in our society also,” Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said at the opening speech of the four-day conference. “I believe that through an effective counseling approach, we will be able to curb this negative phenomenon from spreading in our community.” The government of Malaysia has undertaken a campaign to “limit” homosexuality and is training volunteers and NGOs to carry out anti-gay campaigns that it believes will rid society of social problems like “prostitution, drugs, the risk of HIV/AIDS, as well as psychological and mental disorders.”
