We must decide what’s best for us, Anwar hits back at Clooney

PKR president Anwar Ibrahim stressed the importance for Malaysia not to cave in to international pressure with regard to the LGBT issue.

“We must be fiercely independent, decide what is best for our country, representing the aspiration of our own people,” he told reporters at the sidelines of an event in Bangi, Selangor, today.

Anwar said while Malaysia had to take the international community’s concerns into consideration, the latter had no right to dictate terms.

He was commenting on Hollywood actor George Clooney courting flak for stating that Malaysia and Indonesia were considering the death penalty for homosexuality like Brunei.
