Muslim Islamic NewsMuslims: Legalisation of homosexuality is an attack on Indian values

30 June 2009

The Milli Gazette

Joint Statement of Indian Muslim leaders

Legalisation of homosexuality is an attack on India’s religious and moral values

Issued in Delhi on 30 June 2009

We, the religious, political and community leaders of the Indian Muslim community, are shocked to see reports in the media that the Union Government is considering the repeal of Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code, which means making homosexuality legal.

We strongly feel that this is not simply a question of repealing an old law on the statute but it is an attack on the very moral and religious fabric of our society, as all religious communities in our country are unanimous that homosexuality is a sin and a social evil which will only lead to societal disintegration and break-up of family, the basic unit of society, and as such it should never get legal sanction.

We strongly urge the government, especially Hon’ble Prime Minister, Hon’ble Union Minister of Law and Hon’ble Minister of Home Affairs not to be influenced by the decadent trends of the Western culture and not to give in to the demands of a miniscule minority which displayed its vulgarity on the streets of various Indian cities including the capital as soon as it felt that the government of the day will not enforce what still remains a law on the statute.

The government should not test the patience of the silent vast majority of the country which abhors such behaviour. We feel strongly that the government before considering any change in the concerned law should encourage a debate and discussion on the subject with all sections of the people.
