I've gotten the following information from Options (The Edge) April 17, 2006 pp. 9.
In Malaysia, a total of 77,482 HIV and AIDS cases were reported between 1986 and June 2005. Of these, 12,168, or almost 16%, were heterosexual. Wait, there's more. Housewives made up 1,932 of the cases. Contrary to expectations, gay men made only 1,932, or 1.5%.
One reason for the low incidence of the disease among gay men could be due to the fact that they are wise enough to take precautions knowing they are already in the high-risk category.
According to Datuk Badruddin Amiruldin (I don't know who he is and I don't even give a fuck to know. But I think he's a funny man):
"We don't want to be like the West which has no values. We don't want to follow the Westerners who are road bullies, selfish and don't love others."
Wah, have we somewhat become road bullies, selfish and don't love others because we tend to be more like the West who "has no values"? This is news to me. I thought the most fucked up drivers are from Malaysia and I doubt they are "westernised" to start with.
He added: "Clothes can be indecent, too. That's why rapes happen. Clothes play a part when someone becomes a rape victim."
Wahlau! Now blame the victim lah. Clever pakcik. Very clever!
Whatever it is, read up. Give yourself a good laugh (or cry, whichever comes first)...
Interview with Datuk Badruddin Amiruldin (conducted by NST).
Q: Do you support the Cabinet's directive to Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting
to draft guidelines on indecent behaviour?
A: I fully support it. We want to build a courteous and well-mannered
community and build the human capital of a Muslim nation.
We want to show that Malaysia practises Islam Hadhari. We welcome the
guidelines because we want the younger generation to be well-
mannered. We don't want to be like the West which has no values. We
don't want to follow the Westerners who are road bullies, selfish and
don't love others.
But we are a civilised nation with Eastern values. I wouldn't want to
see my child hugging another person in public. Some may say this is
old-fashioned and not sporting, but where does it end? It will cause
social problems, and in the end, the Government will have to deal
with it. It is better for the Government to come up with rules to
control the behaviour of youth who don't project our values and
Q: What is your response to those who argue that legislating morality
infringes the human rights of others?
A: What is human rights? If one day a young girl comes home pregnant,
is that human rights? If the father is a drug addict, is that human
rights? On the issue of human rights, this is what I'm afraid of -
the conquest of our country through entertainment. Those days, we
conquered using the army and the economy. Today, it's through
entertainment. These things are injected via the television and even
the kampung folk are following it.
Q: Do you think people will actually follow the guidelines?
A: The focus is on the young people. The older folk don't do these
things anymore unless they're husband and wife and that's a sign of
affection. If you want to tell the young people not to do these
things, you cannot do it roughly. You have to tackle it gently.
In Islam, it says we have to advise (tegur) by speaking kindly. We
cannot embarrass them. We call them aside and tell them nicely.
They could be tourists who don't understand our way of life. The way
we handle this is very important. We cannot be rough with the young
When a young couple is together, they don't see anyone else. So, the
regulations have to be there. We have passed many regulations in the
Dewan Rakyat but the enforcement is not strong.
Q: What would you consider "indecent behaviour"?
A: Hugging while walking, hugging while standing and kissing in
public. As for walking while holding hands... in Islam, kalau tak
muhrim, tak boleh (if you are not immediate relatives, you can't).
Clothes can be indecent, too. That's why rapes happen. Clothes play a
part when someone becomes a rape victim. Screaming and shouting are
also indecent. These things are beyond our culture and religion.
Q: Do you believe that guidelines from the Cabinet is the best option?
A: In a multiracial country, we have to adopt the best measures. What
the Government is doing is in the best interest of everybody.
