KUANTAN: Islam is now being tested aggressively by an ideology which can be termed as "human rights-ism", warned Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
The Prime Minister said the ideology was like a new "religion" growing rapidly inside and outside the country.
"This type of understanding is based on humanism and secularism as well as liberalism.
"It is retrograde as it glorifies human wants and desires," Najib said at the opening of the National Quran Recital Competition here Tuesday night.
He said "human rights-ism" rejected the values of religion and etiquette, but was instead wrapped in an image of struggling for basic rights.
Najib said Islam already protected the rights of all, regardless of race, language or religion.
"However, in this age of globalisation, there are attempts to spread retrograde values such as pluralism and liberalism by linking it to Islam. It is very dangerous to our faith.
"Of course, we will not tolerate any demands for apostasy to be allowed, or for Muslims' rights to implement Islamic teachings through the Syariah Court to be denied.
"What more for deviant movements like the LGBT to be recognised and permitted," said Najib.
