Malaysian Student Marries Partner in Ireland, Stirs Controversy at Home
The reported "gay marriage" between a Malaysian and his lover in Ireland has triggered outrage online, with one Facebook group urging he be brought home to be "saved".

The controversy erupted after pictures taken at Ariff Alfian Rosli's same-sex civil union surfaced on the internet last week, three years after the University College Dublin medical student was reported missing by his family.

In the photos, the 28-year-old could be seen wearing a black baju Melayu with kain samping while his partner -- known only as Jonathan -- wore a black tuxedo and green tie.

Local criticism of the same-sex union has been swift and harsh, with mainly Muslim users attacking Ariff Alfian on Twitter for straying from Islam and dishonouring his family.
