Kuala Lumpur, Oct 12(ANI): A plea by four male Muslims that called for a review of an Islamic law prohibiting men from dressing like women has been rejected by a Malaysian High Court on Thursday.
A High Court in Negeri Sembilan state, which is 55km south of Kuala Lumpur, ruled that since the petitioners were Muslims and were born males, they must adhere to the law because it is part of their religion, the News24 reports.
The four petitioners have been arrested and fined several times by Islamic police for dressing like women.
The court rejected the argument of the petitioners that the law should not apply to them because they have been diagnosed with gender identity disorder. (ANI)
