"This is all being purposely done to cover up other problems."

Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim defended the rights of the organisers and supporters of the 2011 Seksualiti Merdeka festival which has been described as a forum for discussion and meetings between lesbian, gay, bisexual and transexual (LGBT) groups.
