M'sian authorities unhappy with gay confession

Kuala Lumpur (The Star/ANN) - A 32-year-old man from Muslim-majority Malaysia caused a stir with a daring confession on YouTube that he is gay, Metro Ahad reported.

His admission has drawn more than 38,000 viewers and over 600 comments since Wednesday, but it did not go down well with Islamic authorities, which felt that the man had tarnished his own image and Islamic precepts.

In his two-minute video clip, the man, who did not identify himself, said it took him quite some time to understand and convince himself that he was gay.

He admitted, however, that it was difficult to make such confession, considering religious and cultural taboos in the country.

The video, which has been uploaded on various websites, was purportedly part of a campaign in defence of the gay community.

Perak Mufti Datuk Sri Harussani Zakaria, clearly unhappy with the admission, said: "Since he acknowledged himself to be a Muslim and a Malay, he should not have made such a confession."

"In truth, he has derided his own dignity and Islam in general."
