Gerakan Pendidik dan Ibubapa Bantah Elemen LGBT di Sekolah

Kami pihak guru dan ibu bapa merasa gusar dengan aktivis pro-LGBT yang telah secara terbuka ingin mempromosi gaya hidup tersebut dalam kalangan pelajar sekolah.

Islamophobic Assaults on Muslim Men are Hate Crimes

MACSA also reiterates the position under Article 8 of the Federal Constitution which prohibits any discriminatory practices on the grounds of religion.

Serangan Islamofobia Ke Atas Umat Islam Adalah Jenayah Kebencian

MACSA mengutuk sekeras-kerasnya serangan ke atas dua pengawal keselamatan yang mendakwa mereka ditampar, dipukul dan diacukan pistol oleh majikan mereka yang bukan beragama Islam kerana berpuasa.

Adib’s case: Tommy Thomas should not manipulate facts

MACSA and PPMM view the writing by former Attorney-General Tan Sri Tommy Thomas, regarding the series of incidents that resulted in the death of the late Muhammad Adib Mohd Kassim as manipulating the actual facts established by the Shah Alam Coroner's Court on September 27, 2019. Thomas in his memoir 'My Story: Justice in the Wilderness' has said, among other things, that: i. The injuries suffered by Adib was when the fire engine was reversing, "pushing backward the vehicle Adib was travelling in. Adib was apparently trying to reenter his car when he was pinned down. It was therefore an accident". ii. the findings of coroner Rofiah Mohamad are extraordinary because the police have informed Thomas that the possibility of foul play has been set aside as the cause of Adib's death. ...
