Malaysian Muslim authority says ‘training & guidance’ can reverse homosexuality

Malaysian authorities have released a video explaining to Muslims how to approach the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community and suggesting that sexual orientation can be changed with “extensive training”.

The Malaysian Islamic Development Department (Jakim) released the three-minute video encouraging the Islamic community to ‘be patient’ and help those who wish to change their sexual orientation with “extensive training and guidance”, according to the Malay Mail Online.

In Malaysia, a predominantly Islamic country, homosexual activity and changing gender are illegal under both state courts and Sharia law.
