“The publication of this prohibition order is in line with the provisions of the Printing Presses and Publications Act (PPPA) 1984 (Amendment) 2012.”

“It stipulates that printing, importing, reproducing, publishing, selling, producing, circulating, distributing or possessing the results of the publication involved is absolutely prohibited in Malaysia,” the statement read.

 

On top of that, KDN shared that the measure is committed to prevent the spread of elements that are harmful to morals, public interests and the country.

They added that the results of the publication involved were subject to a ban because they were harmful publications by promoting, supporting and normalising the LGBTQ+ movement, which is not accepted by Malaysians.

“The offense includes producing, circulating, offering to sell, distributing or having in possession for any such purpose and any prohibited publication,” they explained.
