KUALA LUMPUR: A senator has proposed the enactment of laws related to discrimination, such as the Anti-Discrimination Act, to ensure harmony among the community.

Senator Mujahid Yusof Rawa said further discussions needed to be held to ensure that the drafting of the Act would take into account the country’s plural society.

The former religious affairs minister also suggested that the government deal more firmly with the issues of racial and religious hate speech by introducing an anti-hate speech law.

“Without a specific law, racial and religious issues will continue to be played out, which may ultimately divide the society,” he said when debating a motion on the 12th Malaysia Plan’s mid-term review at the Dewan Negara.
