Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Zulkifli Mohamad’s call for religious authorities to take action against the transgender community could fuel hatred against them, warned NGO Seed Foundation.

In a statement, the trans-led community-based organisation urged Zulkifli (above) and the authorities to cease harassing the marginalised community and to instead uplift the transgender community without the agenda of rehabilitating them as “they are not a problem that needs to be solved”.
