The rally will be held at the Dataran Merdeka square in the Malaysian capital and led by the discriminatory Jaringan Melayu Malaysia group.

Azwanddin Hamzah, president of the JMM says: ‘We do not discriminate against individuals who may have been born with such [homosexual] tendencies. However we are against groups that are out to make this an acceptable lifestyle.’

‘There is an agenda among certain individuals who clearly wish to destroy the nation’s moral and religious values… we must put a stop to this.’
