Two Books Normalizing Homosexuality Banned By The Home Ministry


PUTRAJAYA – The Home Ministry (KDN) has gazetted a prohibition order on two publications, titled “Gay is OK! A Christian Perspective” and “Peichi” under Section 7(1) of the Printing Presses and Publications Act 1984, effective Nov 27 and Dec 15 respectively.

KDN chief secretary Datuk Wan Ahmad Dahlan Abdul Aziz said that it is absolutely prohibited to print, import, produce, reproduce, publish, sell, circulate, distribute or own these publications in the country.

“These publications have been banned because they contain content that might be detrimental to public order, morals and public interest,” he said in a statement today.

He said the contents of the publication “Gay is OK! A Christian Perspective” was viewed as an attempt to promote homosexual culture in Malaysia, which goes against religious and cultural sensitivities in the country.

“Deviant lifestyles are banned and in opposition with all religious teachings, including Islam, Christianity, Buddhism and Hinduism,” he said.

The publication entitled “Peichi”, he said, contains pornographic and immoral material that goes against the cultural values and norms of Malaysian society, which emphasises civility.

He said anyone who violates the order can be jailed for not more than three years or fined not more than RM20,000 or both.
Complaints regarding such publications can be made to the ministry’s enforcement and control division at 03-88868047 or via the website
