Anwar: The unity government under his lead will never recognise secularism, communism and LGBT

NewsAnwar: The unity government under his lead will never recognise secularism, communism...

The concept of a secular state, communist ideology and the LGBT community will never be recognised by the unity government, said Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim.

Speaking in an interview with RTM, Anwar said the matter was only raised by certain parties to spread misinformation among the public..

“Sometimes these politicians will say that if Anwar becomes prime minister then Islam will be ruined, secularism and communism will gain a foothold, and LGBT will be recognised.”

“This is a delusion. Of course, it will not happen and God willing under my administration this is not going to happen,” he said.

When asked about the lawsuits he filed against several individuals, Anwar said it was because their accusations touched his authority as a leader.

“Thousands of accusations have been made, slanders have been hurled and for decades I have accepted it but if I feel it is too much as they question my authority and credibility as a leader, then they should be taught that this freedom does not give them the freedom to slander.”

“We use religion, then we slander, we make accusations, I would like to ask their teachers, Ustaz (religious teacher), to teach them first before teaching others,” he said.

After swearing in as the Prime Minister on 24 November 2022, Anwar has filed lawsuits against several individuals including Perikatan Nasional (PN) chairman Muhyiddin Yassin for making false accusations against him.

Confidence vote proves that Anwar has the majority support

Meanwhile, Anwar also said that the cooperation agreement between Pakatan Harapan (PH) and the other coalitions in the unity government has to be done because the majority obtained at that time was too narrow.

However, to prove that he has the support, Anwar said he brought the confidence vote motion in parliament.

“This vote of confidence motion was being challenged by the opposition. They said Anwar had no support. In a democratic system, the best way to prove it is through a vote of confidence or a vote of no confidence, which was not proposed.

“So, I submitted the motion and have proven that I have strong support,” he said.
