JAKARTADAILY.ID - Deddy Corbuzier, a magician and talk-show host cum podcaster woke up on the wrong side of the Indonesian Ulema Council chairman's bed after he invited a gay couple to his podcast show this week.

Deddy invited Ragil Mahardika and Frederik Vollert to his YouTube podcast to talk about their lives as gay couples living in Germany. 

Naturally, the video quickly garnered criticisms from Indonesia's more conservative community.

Responding to the podcast on Youtube, the chairman of the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) Cholil Nafis stated that he considers LGBT to be an abnormality that must be treated, not tolerated. 

'I still think that LGBT is an abnormality that must be treated, not left on the pretext of tolerance. Even though it's innate, that's not natural. Normal humans are men paired with women and vice versa," said Cholil on his personal Twitter account @cholilnafis, quoted by Arahkata on Tuesday, May 10, 2022.

Furthermore, Cholil also appealed to the Muslim community not to participate in watching and broadcasting Ragil's content.

"Let us not participate in broadcasting the LGBT couple," said Cholil.

Cholil also reprimanded Deddy for inviting Ragil and Frederik. He stated that Islam forbids the existence of LGBT and will not tolerate them.
