KUALA LUMPUR, March 21 (Bernama) -- A Barisan Nasional (BN) backbencher
today called on the government to establish a homosexual rehabilitation centre
to prevent same-sex relationships from getting rampant in the country.
Datuk Baharum Mohamad (BN-Sekijang) said the centre should offer suitable
treatment and therapy for those involved to leave and avoid homosexual
"We have to find a solution to combat these activities from getting rampant
just like the efforts we take to combat drugs.
"A study has found that, right now, three out of 10 men in Malaysia are gay.
This is scary," he said when debating the motion of thanks for the royal address
at the Dewan Rakyat sitting today.
Baharum said cooperation from all quarters, however, was needed to ensure
success of the effort.
The sitting continues tomorrow.
