India: Muslim cleric issues fatwa calling for homosexuals to be burnt alive, pushed from high wall or stoned





 But gay activists everywhere know that Phil Robertson is the real threat.

"Bareilly cleric issues fatwa against homosexuality, live-in relationships," by Shailvee Sharda for TNN, December 20:

LUCKNOW: A Bareilly-based cleric has issued a fatwa against homosexuality and live-in relationships calling them anti-Islam and said Shariyat has provisions to punish those indulging in such acts.
The fatwa was issued by Mohammad Afzaal Rizwi, the mufti of Darululoom Ifta at Dargah Aala Hazrat, Bareilly in response to a query by Akhlaq Ahmed Siddiqui Noori on the issue.

The mufti has cited two hadis (teachings of the Prophet Mohammed) from the Quran as a premise for his fatwa. As per Hadis Dur-re-mukhtar, such acts could attract severe punishment, he said. "A person may be burnt alive, pushed from a high wall or be beaten publically with stones if he indulges into either of the two behaviours," the fatwa states.

The other hadis is a story that explains why Islam is against homosexuality. The story relates to a tribe, kaum-e-looth, which existed in the pre-Islamic era. The tribe is said to have perished because it indulged in homosexuality.

Regarding live-in relationships, the fatwa says a couple staying together or having sexual relationship without solemnising marriage is banned under Islam. The woman in a live-in relationship cannot ask for the rights of a wife.

Many clerics have backed the fatwa. Maulana Tasleem Raza Khan of Ahle Sunnat Movement said the two relationships do not have legal validity under Islam. He said no religion would allow this and advised Muslims to boycott the law that promotes such behaviour.

Shia cleric Maulana Yadoob Abbas said both live-in relationships and homosexuality are against nature. "Going against nature would spell doom," he said. Maulana Khalid Rasheed Firangi Mahli of Eidgah Lucknow termed it "against Indian tradition".

To this day I still dont know why the left attacks Islam....
GOP House members came to Paul Ryan to be Speaker. He didn't come to them. And he was everybody's conservative darling back in 2012. So unless 1 of the remaining 240 wants to step up & do a better job in budgeting & negotiations & herding the party cats, then everybody please STFU. You go to battle with the army you have, not the one you want but don't have.

The thought of being burned alive just might keep a lot of Muslim homosexuals in the closet.  :nometalk:

Shouldn't Obama send a group of gay athletes to this "cleric" to protest? :pondering:

The enemy of my enemy is my friend.  The left knows Islam has the same goals, destroy all Judeo-Christian religions and any who opposes them.  The left figures that if they play nice, the Islamists will leave them alone.  What it really means is that they will be beheaded last.
