Pribumi MP's idiocy

PETALING JAYA: Remarks in the Dewan Rakyat by a PPBM Pribumi politician yesterday not only show prejudice against HIV-positive patients but could also complicate recent efforts by the government to introduce more effective treatment and prevention methods, says an activist working with AIDS victims.

Martin Choo said the claim by Pakatan Harapan’s (PH) Bagan Serai MP Noor Azmi Ghazali that HIV is only spread through the sexual activities of homosexual men is not accurate.

“Anyone who has sex without adequate protection is at risk of HIV, regardless of their sexual orientation or how they choose to have sex,” Choo, of the Kuala Lumpur AIDS Support Services Society, told FMT.

Yesterday, Noor Azmi, an Umno MP who joined PPBM Pribumi last year, urged the government to step up efforts against the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community, saying they were practising deviant sex and had contributed to a spike in the number of HIV cases.

Choo, saying HIV cases had indeed increased, with 90% of new infections last year from sexual transmission, welcomed the government’s response to the problem.

He said the health ministry had increased access to sexual healthcare with special clinics to treat sexually transmitted infections.

“It will be regrettable if such efforts by the government to contain the epidemic are negated by prejudicial messaging, and deleterious if people are hurt as a result,” he said.

“Instead of calling out any one group for condemnation, perhaps we should encourage better sexual healthcare that will benefit all Malaysians.”

The Malaysian AIDS Council also disagreed with Noor Azmi’s statement, saying his description of homosexual intercourse using the “back door” analogy was off the mark and showed ignorance of scientific and medical facts.

“All this talk of LGBT is merely fear-mongering that targets Malaysians who are vulnerable and widely discriminated against,” said the council’s president Bakhtiar Talhah.

Influenced Pribumi members? 

“The only way to prevent HIV is through awareness and educating Malaysians with the proper knowledge to keep themselves safe, and if they are infected, to give them access to treatment that is already available nationwide.”

He voiced hope that views such as those by Noor Azmi would not dent the progress made by Malaysia in treating HIV victims.

He also said recent efforts had managed to stop the spread of HIV among drug addicts, and that the focus now was to keep it from spreading through sexual activities.


  1. Wikipedia vaguely describes his profession as “Physician”. No alma mater mentioned.

    Quick, someone check his degree. Fake or pasar malam? Charlatan maybe or a provisional half-past-six bomoh?

  2. Since anyone can just conclude and made statements without statistics and instead based on their whimsical hypothesis, here is another one.

    There is a very clear trend that most HIV cases are in the Northern States bordering Thailand and espeicially so in the States of Kelantan, Trengganu, Perlis, Kedah. And these states are mostly populated by Malays and Moslems.

    So, what's the conclusions?

    1. The conclusion is you're an idiot wrapped in a moron and smothered in imbecile sauce. Wakakaka..

    2. It is a fact that Kelantan, Kedah and Terengganu have among the highest rates of AIDS infection and deaths in Malaysia.

      The principal epidemic sub-group consists of Malay-Muslim men.
      Young unmarried men, followed by married men.

      The root cause investigation further established the principal high-risk activity is related to patronage of prostitution activities across the international border in Thailand.

      Due to the secretive nature of such patronage, there is a high rate of secondary infections among the men's partners.

      The secrecy also leads to serious delays in seeking medical testing and treatment, leading to a high rate of deaths.

      Properly treated and early treated, medical treatment for AIDS as of 2019 actually has a good outlook in terms of prolonging life, to the extent many HIV positive individuals live long enough to reach old age or die of other unrelated illnesses.

      This is hard science and statistics, no need to get too sensitive about it.

  3. AIDS is mostly (but not only) spread by 3 categories High risk activity
    - Those who partake in prostitution and the sex industry.
    - Drug Addicts who share hypodermic needles
    - Last (but not least) sexually active homosexual men

    It is no secret sexually active homosexual men remain the highest AIDS risk group because of the high levels of promiscuity inherent in that sub-culture. Safe sex practices such as using condoms reduce but are not certain prevention of AIDS spread.

  4. Wakakakaka…

    "an idiot wrapped in a moron and smothered in imbecile sauce."

    Give credit lah!

    Zombies have no understanding of IP rights. Hence the copycatted/plagiarized version of their holybook!
