PETALING JAYA: The meeting with transgender advocate Nisha Ayub did not touch on equal rights of same-sex marriages but on the discrimination faced by the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community, says Datuk Dr Mujahid Yusof Rawa.

"In the meeting yesterday, issues related to same-sex marriage were not brought up at all. The meeting was more about addressing the discrimination face by the mak nyah community and problems faced by them including matters pertaining to religion, specifically worship," said the Minister in the Prime Minister's Department in charge of religious affairs.
