The Malaysian government has revealed the reason for banning Thor: Love and Thunder and Lightyear

Malaysian government still seems to be operating in the past

The first eight months of 2022 have already passed, but the Malaysian government still seems to be operating in the past. The LGBTQ+ content in “Thor: Love and Thunder,” which is illegal in Malaysia, has been identified as the cause of the country’s ban by the Malaysian government.

Malaysian government is committed to eradicating gay culture

On Wednesday, a minister declared that the government is committed to eradicating gay culture. Distributor Disney submitted both “Thor” and the Pixar animated movie “Lightyear” for classification and censorship by the nation’s Film Censorship Board (LPF).

Both times, the studio declined to implement LPF-requested cuts, thereby denying the films a theatrical distribution.

In at least 16 nations with a majority of Muslims, “Lightyear” was outlawed.

The deputy minister of communications and multiplatform, said, “Recently there was a film that did not pass censorship, and that is the new ‘Thor’ feature. Although (the film) made mention of LGBT issues. We can observe that many other films with LGBT themes currently escape censorship.

The spread of LGBT culture in the nation will be stopped

The spread of LGBT culture in the nation will be stopped, according to Zahidi. He also claimed that the government and the religious division (properly known as the Islamic Affairs Department or JAKIM) are dedicated to doing so. Zahidi claimed that LGBT films were becoming more subtle in their approaches and blamed the issue on foreign elements. He also urged public vigilance.

“I am frustrated because the outside world was the one promoting LGBT,” he said responding to a question in Parliament. Zahidi said the government was always monitoring films and social media platforms for LGBT content and “would take severe action against individuals found promoting such elements.”
