Ariff Alfian Rosli’s return demanded by Muslim groups after he married his partner in Ireland

A Malaysian national living in Ireland is under fire from his home country after photographs were published of him and his civil partner.

Ariff Alfian Rosli has been studying in Ireland for eight years and married his partner (known only as Jonathan) at Dublin city hall.

The Irish Times has reported that the photos of Rosli and his partner were published on the front of some local papers.

This resulted in Muslim groups urging the Malaysian police to investigate the issue because Rosli didn’t comply with the country’s Islamic laws.
