Ras Mubarak, journalists call for legislation to bar media from airing LGBTQI+ comments

The former Member of Parliament for Kumbungu Constituency in the Northern Region, Mr. Ras Mubarak says there must be a legislation that stops the media from airing interviews and expressed views on LGBTQ rights in the country.

According to him, the media should be rebuked for giving what he described as criminals such as LGBTQI people the platform to advocate and propagate their “evil agenda” which is criminalized by the Constitution.

“Parliament must rise to the occasion and legislate to curb the brazen airing of views of LGBTQI. It must strength existing legislation. There has to be legislation that reprimands media houses that air pro-LGBTQI views and content.

“Would these media houses give cyber criminals or drunk drivers to use their platform to encourage others to commit cyber crime or drink and drive?,” he wrote in a Facebook post.

He descended on the diplomats who graced the opening ceremony of an LGBTQI office in Accra.

According to him, such diplomats should not be welcomed in the country.

He noted that the participants at the ceremony was a gross disrespect to the country’s laws.

“It is unacceptable for some diplomats to decide to disrespect their host nation and take part in a meeting with a bunch of people who’s activities are illegal under Ghanaian laws.

“I hope, I really do hope that government would have the courage to declare these diplomats persona non grata,” he emphasised.
