THE Islamic Development Department of Malaysia (Jakim) is planning to take action against a Muslim engineer who confessed on YouTube that he is gay, Harian Metro reported.

Jakim community, social and family development director Saimah Muhktar said the man’s revelations were detrimental to Islam and society.

She added that Jakim would hold a meeting with several departments including the Multimedia and Communication Commission on the matter.

Saimah said Islam abhorred homosexuality and it was considered a major sin which went against the order of nature and Islamic laws.

The daily also reported on an old couple lamenting about their stepdaughter who sweet-talked them into auctioning their house, land and jewellery.

Abdul Aziz Ibrahim and Zahrah Mohamad, from Johor, said their stepdaughter was jailed for two years in the 1990s for cheating.

She added that the woman was welcomed home after she claimed to be remorseful.

However, the stepdaughter began showing her true colours when she coaxed them to give her their money to pay off her debts.

She also managed to re-direct money from the parents’ bank loan account into her own account.

“We were shocked when she managed to lease our land to others without our knowledge.

“We had planned to sell the land to repay the housing loan,” Abdul Aziz added.
