PETALING JAYA: The founding president of a lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights group, has quit his posts in DAP after having organised a “gay iftar” last month, MalayMail Online (MMO) reported.
Numan Afifi, of Pelangi Campaign, ... [...] ... however, denies being forced to quit from his posts by the party following the controversy raised after the “gay iftar” breaking of fast event on June 10, organised by Pelangi Campaign.
“I think for the cause I’m doing, I don’t want it to be affected by politics. So I think it’s best for the activism I’m doing to not be influenced by politics,” Numan told MMO, adding that he remains a DAP member.
Two DAP youth leaders also denied that the party had anything to do with Numan’s decision to quit from his posts.
LGBT is such a sensitive issue in religiously conservative Malaysia (not just with Muslims but Christians as well) that poor Numan Afifi felt he has to quit his political job just because he merely organised a 'gay' iftar.
This sounds ridiculous but not in Malaysia, where God's creation can be edited, audited and vetted for approval by mortal priests (of the Abrahamic religions).
By the way, for Malaysians (including and especially Malays, wakakaka) who might have forgotten what is the Malay term of 'buka puasa', it means the current Arab word 'iftar', wakakaka again.

The beautiful Pelangi people came for 'iftar'
In colours like the flag of Truth & Compassion
BTW, 'iftar' in our lingo means 'buka puasa'
When passion was for Allah, not Arabisation
They respect the Divine words on Ramadan
Abstaining thro' discipline and devoted piety
Praying, only breaking puasa at setting sun
They, best of god's children, fast in empathy
Priests of Hatred revile these God's Children
Defiling the Almighty's own beautiful creation
Insulting the Lord's hard work with derision
Blaspheming divine work without realisation
They believe not in God but enhanced prestige
Indulging in vile threats of malevolent hostility
Not unlike dark occult forces used to bewitch
Blind lemming-like followers of their religiosity
