Malaysia Releases Video Saying Homosexuality can be Changed

Malaysia’s Islamic authority likened sexual orientation to horse-riding, claiming that with training and practice anyone can change their techinque.


Malaysia’s federal islamic authorities—the Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (JAKIM)—have suggested sexual orientation can be changed in a video aimed to educate Muslims in the country on how to approach LGBT issues.

The 3:08-minute video has received 16,000 views and urges homosexuals to fulfill his sexual desires through marriage, or subdue desires by fasting. It advises Muslims to be patient and help their friends change if they discover them to be LGBT.

The video states, in Malay, “fact is, there are those among Muslims that has non-heterosexual orientation but remains steadfast on the path of Islam.”

“For them, this is a test of Allah, and they choose to face the test appropriate with what Islam demands,” said the video.

JAKIM also likened sexual orientation to horse-riding, claiming that with training and practice anyone can change their techinque.

The video has received mixed mixed reactions online with some praising JAKIM’s “soft” and “respectful” approach to LGBT.

Others pointed out that it is impossible for homosexuals to change their orientation.

“This video is going to make people believe that there is a way to 'change' homosexuals into heterosexuals. No way you can do that,” said one user according to Malay Online.

“I was not impressed by the video. And it's very dangerous for them to encourage heterosexual marriage as a way to ‘fix’ the LGBT person, for the person, the spouse AND the children they may bear,” commented user Huda Mutalib.

I don't think there is anything in human society that is quite as harmful as religion, not just Islam - all religion. It embraces prejudice against people who don't follow the prescribed line, encourages hypocrisy, and retards progress in both society and technology. While religious leaders claim to have love for all, they are busily condemning people who disagree with them. People are ostracized, jailed, and murdered at the whims of various gods, none of which demonstrably exist. And the people who use religion to torment innocent people are evil.

There is not Women prophets and discipleship in Hollybooks of Islam and Christian. That is figure that Women emancipation is wrong and can be changed or cured.
Virus of Women emancipation Disease can be sterilized.

Sexual is not about fucking but all desires
Emancipation of women is wrong sex Orientation

True leadership is leading by example....Show me how it's done!!

I did 18 years of Conversion Therapy and found that you can change sexual behaviour and NOT sexual orientation.

Show me how to change and I'll try it....become Gay if you can!!
15. 2017-02-15 11:59  
People can be changed. It happens everyday.

Even the most imprisoned has freedom of choice.

Well done to the religious leaders. Shouldering the most sin can't be very enlightening.
16. 2017-02-15 15:24  
hivyo why i took conversion Therapy? Why you didn't give Therapy to people that Hate you? that no love you?

Heterosexual men/women are also should get Conversion Therapy due to Flood of Population.

To Hate, to disturb and to discrimate gay is very big Sin and unforgiveable Sin.
They will be sent to Hell by God/Allah

Title : Making Reason
you always make misleading of my sincere heart.
you never respect of my genuine love
we went by hurt
we succumb and patient

you always look for cause and for reasons
therefor you get what your desire

Your mouth is sweet and you play hollybook verses game

IF the Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (JAKIM) want everybody the same as Them, Then Everybody should be received to be JAKIM member


There must be Millions of JAKIM-like organizations as competitor

The concept of JAKIM is Similarity, it is very easy right?

You must learn people / certain religion behavior.
At first they offered friendship, solution, simpathy or many kind to be able to enter your society.
When They grow stronger, They will Kill you

That is the Technical.
it is like small rain that growing to be bigger rain.
When you see small rain, you seem like happy but this rain will never stop and growing bigger, making flood, and disaster
30. 2017-02-16 16:12  
That why you should not never to accept that religion, even with very small follower at first
there should be no reason acceptable as they will never accept any of your reason in future.

The Headline of Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (JAKIM) word is,
"Killing, intimidate,discriminate, violent, etc to minority is Legal"

and we had to make flash back, that this religion was minority at first.

31. 2017-02-16 20:33  
Islamic Development Malaysia (JAKIM) is lost of consciousness and should get conversion Therapy, to be cured.
Because Malaysia is not Islamic country but Malaysia Country.
it is also not Allah Country but Malaysia Country.
Allah Citizen having Own Territory
If They Confess as Allah Citizen or Allah Umat or Allah Society mean they are in collonialism
32. 2017-02-16 20:50  
No matter that Religions correct or wrong we don't bother

no matter Religion preaching debate correct or wrong,
we should just love ourselves and should none insult us.

People who are not able to preaching is majority.
People who are able to do preaching of Religion is Minority.
33. 2017-02-16 20:54  
Everybody having right to be Prophet
34. 2017-02-16 21:05  
few Religions are just Psychological Games.
So, you should not let anyone to mastering your psychology.

You should free yourself from Trap or Jail of Psychology.
There should be none to win your Psychology

Preaching is Psychological Game
Hollybook Verses are Psychological game.

People may win in Preaching or debate
but you should not let them to win over yourself and your family
They just want to Kill your psychology of yourselves
but you should master yourself and love your own family.

People who are lost in Preaching/speech is The winner
People who is smart in Preaching/speech is the loser
