What can the community and Muslim organisations (CMOs) offer in developing and enhancing the capabilities of religious teachers and counsellors?
While the repeal of Section 377A drives for inclusivity, how can we guarantee the outcome of nurturing our children according to long-established family norms?
How can we actively educate and imbibe our children with values and principles that would enable them to navigate the complexities of modern life with confidence and compassion?
Does the act of embracing the different sexual orientations undermine our religious faith and values?
Can we formulate a value-based framework to strengthen our family institution based on our religious traditions and guided by civic reasoning?
The right information needs to be given to our youth so they are not influence by the media or peer pressure to conform to the LGBT agenda. Rejecting that lifestyle does not need to be rejecting the LGBT community. The youth should be clear on the Islamic values vs western values in dealing with such people.
No, I think the act of embracing the different sexual orientations doesn't undermine our religious faith and values. I think we should be more empathetic about it. We shouldn't judge their choices in life. I think we should lead by example instead.
Sharing of experiences and view point

If CMOs want to take this on, counsellors need to be properly trained in managing this issue. Seeing as this is tied to religious convictions, this should be handled by religious counsellors.

cmo needs to have similar stand towards lgbtq. there nd to be continous education n training towards understanding the issue.
A standard guideline among all CMOs is needed so that we are all on the same page.
would think it is a more of a joint effort between cmo and religious instns. how to weave in the religious components / messages into the counselling session. Perhaps a curriculum can be created.
Counselling and religious counselling should be separate
We need a religious guidance on how we can live and let live with our loved ones who lead different sexual orientations lifestyle. Or else, kita sendiri akan dikecam oleh masyarakat for being miscontrued as supporting such lifestyle.
