Following the controversial ‘Hijrah Diri – Homoseksualiti’ app by the Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (JAKIM) being removed  from the Google Play Store, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Religious Affairs) Datuk Idris Ahmad had yesterday instructed for JAKIM to liaise with the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) for clarification and further action.

The app, which was developed by JAKIM in collaboration with Yayasan Ihtimam Malaysia is aimed to ‘save the LGBTQ among Muslims’ have drew criticism from many quarters, including getting some pretty bad publicity from publications overseas. These include articles from UK-based newspapers The Guardian and The Independent, among others.


As we’ve reported previously, the controversial app included an e-book that referred to a real-life experience of a homosexual man who has since repented and left the LGBTQ world, as well as videos on lectures about LGBTQ, feedback, prayers and papers regarding the view of the LGBTQ from Islam’s perspective.

Speaking of the app’s removal from the Play Store, the Religious Affairs Minister said that it is very unfortunate that an application to help people return to their nature was denied by certain groups. Furthermore, Idris, who is also a Dewan Negara Senator from PAS was quoted by national news agency Bernama of asserting:

“There are many other applications that lead to immorality which increasingly damaging the souls of Muslims and young people… This is our big challenge, and let’s face it together!”
