The Islam-based United Development Party (PPP) has recommended that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people be "cured" of their sexual orientations in a program covered by the Social Security Management Agency (BPJS).
“We recommended to the government that an LGBT healing program could be covered by the BPJS,” PPP deputy chairman Tamam Achda said during the party’s national leadership meeting at the Haj Dormitory Building in East Jakarta on Monday as reported by tribunnews.com.
Tamam did not mention details about the treatment that would be used to "heal" LGBT people.
The World Heath Organization does not consider homosexuality, bisexuality, or transgenderism to be psychiatric disorders.
Tamam said the party also suggested the government should pass a law on LGBT people, making their actions criminal offenses.
The PPP called on the public, including educational and religious institutions, to be aware of LGBT issue.
“We also warn family institutions to be aware and to protect young generations from the dangers of LGBT [orientations],” he added. (jun).
