The National Fatwa Council has banned females from dressing or behaving like men and engaging in lesbian sex, saying it was forbidden by the religion. Malaysia's main body of Islamic clerics has issued an edict banning tomboys in the Muslim-majority country, ruling that girls who act like boys violate the tenets of Islam, an official said Friday.
Harussani said an increasing number of Malaysian girls behave like tomboys, and that some of them engage in homosexuality. Homosexuality is not explicitly banned in Malaysia, but it is effectively illegal under a law that prohibits sex acts "against the order of nature." Harussani said the council's ruling was not legally binding because it has not been passed into law, but that tomboys should be banned because their actions are immoral.
"It doesn't matter if it's a law or not. When it's wrong, it's wrong. It is a sin," Harussani said. "Tomboy (behavior) is forbidden in Islam."
"It is unacceptable to see women who love the male lifestyle including dressing in the clothes men wear," The National Fatwa Council Chairman, Dr Abdul Shukor Husin was quoted as saying.
"(Masculine behaviour) becomes clearer when they start to have sex with someone of the same gender, that is woman and woman," he said.
What do you think? Everyone knows that homosexuality it's Haram. But on the other side I'm thinking of what was in the mind of these girls. We don't know how they grew up to become like this. This could be due to sexual abuse at a young age or some other dark sides they grew up which made them like what they are today. Some may have parents, some may be living with relatives, some may be living at orphanage, we don't know their history. Do you think we just be so prejudices? That is what was on my left side of brain said.
On the other side.. I'm totally agree with what they said about 'Tomboyism is not human creation, its God creation'. But He give us brain and idea or plan, so, why don't we use it to think and learn what was wrong and what was right? Rite? Agree with me?
My suggestion is, Council can suggest a better idea to have a session with the tomboys itself. They can invites a few of them and try to help them and find the right way to vanish the behavior slowly. Maybe these girls need professional help and someone should help them get through this. It is not so easy as to put a stop. Just my 2cent's.
