Australia reviews visa of Islamic scholar over homosexuality comments

Australia is urgently reviewing the visa of a British Islamic scholar who toured Orlando this year and had preached in 2013 that “death is the sentence” for homosexual acts.

Farrokh Sekaleshfar, a senior Shi’ite Muslim scholar, is giving a series of lectures at an Islamic centre in Sydney on the topic of spirituality.

Sekaleshfar said in a lecture in Michigan in 2013 that in an Islamic society, the death penalty should be carried out for homosexuals who engaged in sodomy.

    Every Islamic centre that invites this #$%$ to be their guest of honour must know all bout him. Why aren’t they all being investigated (and bulldozed)?

      One could ask that same question about EVERY foreign imam “visiting/touring” any western, non-muslim country. These are the muslims that should be barred entry ANYWHERE. Ditto “foreign funding” of mosques in western countries. Kill that RIGHT AWAY. For starters…

    Don’t all islamic scholars say that death is the sentence for homosexuals? And by extension don’t all “good” muslims agree with them?

          Nope. That’s the Ayatollah Rouhani. He and Tommy Two-Passports are virtually twins.

      This imam strikes me as gay. 😉

    Islam does not have a problem with homosexual sex provided you are the giver and not the receiver. Of course this creates serious problems for the receiver.
