Yadim urges MCMC to pull, delete Hari Raya music video promoting LGBT

MELAKA: Yayasan Dakwah Islamiah Malaysia (Yadim) has urged the Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) to pull or delete the recent Hari Raya music video featuring well-known cosmetics entrepreneurs, who clearly promote lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) culture.

Yadim Chief Executive Officer Tuan Kamarul Arief Tuan Soh said apart from that, MCMC was also urged to take appropriate action under the commission act, so that such barbaric actions would not be repeated, especially by the same individuals, especially during the month of Ramadan.

“It is time for stricter action to be taken by the responsible parties, especially MCMC, because it involves dissemination in cyberspace, there is no need for warnings to be given to the individual, because he has been involved in such controversies many times.

“MCMC can not only withdraw or ban the video, but action can also be taken against the broadcaster and maker of the video. There are limits that cannot be violated, especially in Malaysia and involving the Muslim community, and during this Ramadan,” he told reporters after the program. Aidilfitri Yadim Aid is here today.

Earlier, he spent time helping single mother Umi Nur Faizah Fauzan Ali Halimi and her four children aged seven to 15 to choose the raya clothes donated by Yadim.

He said Yadim was also ready to make a report to the MCMC on the music video if needed, to enable action to be taken against the individual.

He said apart from that, the public was urged to use their power as consumers, so that entertainment categorized as ‘junk’ was no longer presented to the general public.

Tuan Kamarul Arief said the music video was seen only as one of the marketing methods by the individual for his business, although the approach was incorrect and labeled as ‘bad promotion’.

In the meantime, he said Yadim said he was committed to curbing the LGBT normalization process in the country through various approaches including information, law enforcement and ongoing advocacy which would be mobilized by about 10,000 dakwah agents of the foundation, who were at the university and school levels.

In another development, he said Yadim had allocated about RM500,000 to help 10,000 asnaf, the poor and the needy during Ramadan.

Meanwhile, Umi Nur Faizah, who is looking for used items to raise her four children, said she was grateful to receive donations of Hari Raya clothes for her family, thus giving joy to her children to celebrate Eid.

“Alhamdulillah, thank God … there are also raya shirts for my four children and myself. I did not expect to be able to prepare for Hari Raya like others,” he said.
