BBC NEWS | Asia-Pacific | Malaysia to curb 'moral policing'

All power and kudos to the government of Malaysia for asserting control over activist religiousity.

But a huge question over freedom of religion still remains. Under the Malaysian Constitution, if you are born of Malay parents, you are Malay and hence Muslim. You cannot effectively deny your faith for that would be apostacy and would be subject to Sharia Law.

Will write something longer another day but have expended time and brain-power writing response to argument for abstinence-only policy and quasi-homophobia on Young Republic.
