Beatings, death threats and rejection: Woman tells of harrowing life as lesbian Muslim in Pakistan

A woman has bravely revealed what it is like to be a Muslim lesbian after moving from Pakistan to the UK.

Zayna, not her real name, who is 40, said she has been beaten, humiliated and threatened because of her sexuality.

As reported by the Manchester Evening News, she refused to deny her true identity despite physical and mental abuse as people believed she had misinterpreted the messages of the Quran.

Indonesian police arrest 58 men in raid on gay sauna

Indonesian police have detained 58 men including several foreigners in a raid on a gay sauna, an official said on Saturday, the latest sign of a backlash against homosexuals in the Muslim-majority country.

Police late on Friday raided a building in the capital Jakarta that houses a sauna and a gym after they received information from the public that it was being used for prostitution.

“We secured 51 and seven employees for allegedly providing pornographic services,” Jakarta Police spokesman Argo Yuwono said in a statement.

‘It was alleged that you made offensive comments about Islam’

Student ‘forced to leave’ university after saying extremist Islamic groups kill LGBTI people

“…Dr Browning said: ‘It was a conversation you had with a couple of other students that you weren’t originally part of. You joined it. The topic of one student being engaged to a Muslim came up, and it was alleged that you made offensive comments about Islam to that student.’

‘The topic of one student being engaged to a Muslim came up. It was alleged that you made offensive comments about Islam to that student.’

In the recording, MacDonald can be heard explaining: ‘I said that I was bothered that I could be killed in ten Muslim countries. I’m bisexual. So they’d definitely do that in the ten countries where I would be — you know.’

He continued to clarify that the comments were not targeted at the fellow student’s fiance, but ‘about the religious practices in those countries.’

Later on in the meeting, he asked Dr Browning what would happen to him if his comments were deemed inappropriate again in future.

She stated: ‘We’d put it either before the behavior intervention team or the student conduct board. And we’d ask them to make a recommendation.’

Dr Browning then went on to clarify they would either refer him for counseling. Or they would recommend that he be academically dismissed.


I have an issue with the article’s headline. It is incorrect, the original is; Student ‘forced to leave’ university after saying extremist Islamic groups kill LGBTI people.

1. He was not “forced to leave” he was only made to feel uncomfortable which prompted him to switch schools.

2. The headline implies only “extremist Islamic groups” kill gays. In fact as the article itself states Death for being homosexual is the law in 10 Muslim states. The murder of Gays is sanctioned by Islam, not some imaginary “extremist” Islam.

Indonesia To Pass Law Banning All LGBT Characters On TV

Indonesia’s House of Representatives is set to pass a law that will ban all LGBT characters from television programs broadcast in the country, the Jakarta Post reports.

“We can’t allow LGBT behavior on TV. It is against our culture,” says NasDem Party representative Supiadin Aries Saputra. “We have to ban it early before it becomes a lifestyle. It’s dangerous and can ruin the morality of the younger generation.”

In compliance with the new broadcasting bill, all TV programs would need to be screened by a censorship bureau, including commercials and documentaries. This bill would also prevent news media from reporting on any LGBT rights issues.

Justin Trudeau’s Government gave Indonesia 42 Million in 2016.

German Gays fear booming Muslim presence, join political far-right

GERMANY, September 27, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – Many around the world are shocked that Germany’s far-right political party, Alternative für Deutschland (AfD), won 94 of 709 seats in the Bundestag earlier this week — a feat unseen for the county’s far-right since the defeat of the Nazis in 1945.

What is perhaps far more astounding is that the party’s leading figure is Dr. Alice Weidel, a lesbian raising two children with her female partner who is also firmly against same-sex “marriage.”

While the combination of “right-leaning” and “LGBT” may be a rarity in the United States, Dr. Weidel’s assent is indicative of a significant trend in Europe, and in Germany in particular, as gays have come to realize that the spread of Islam represents a very real existential threat.

‘A Lot Of Girls Would Probably Rather Die’: In Russia’s Chechnya, Lesbians Tell Of Suffocating Existence

The young woman was riding in a taxi to the airport when she decided to make the call. She had just left her home in Russia’s southern Chechnya region — for good, she thought, first on a flight to Moscow to pick up emigration documents and then on a plane out of the country.

But the taxi driver was eavesdropping. And when the woman told her friend she had run away, he locked the car doors and drove her back home, fearing potential consequences for his role in her planned escape.

The 22-year-old woman was a lesbian who claimed that her relatives had beaten and threatened her with death after learning of her sexual orientation. Within a week of the fateful taxi ride, she was dead. Her family says she succumbed to kidney failure. Some who knew her believe she was poisoned; but a close friend rejects that claim, telling RFE/RL that she had indeed suffered from kidney problems.

Alarmed by Islam, Europe’s Gays Are Moving to the Right #M103

For decades, in both America and Europe, the gay establishment – gay magazines, gay rights organizations, and self-designated gay leaders – have been dictating politics to the gay multitudes. Those politics have been consistently left-wing and Democratic. Not all gays have played follow-the-leader, but most have, so that in the 2016 U.S. presidential elections Hillary Clinton won a far larger percentage of the gay vote than Donald Trump.

Even though Hillary had opposed same-sex marriage until 2013, had taken millions of dollars from governments that execute homosexuals, and was married to the man who signed the Defense of Marriage Act, the gay mafia had managed to depict her as gay-friendly while depicting Donald Trump, a longtime gay marriage supporter, as an enemy of gay rights.

Jamil El-Biza, from Wollongong south of Sydney, weighed into the postal vote survey on redefining marriage on his public page.

‘I see it as a sign of whether the public has openly accepted that f****ts and lesbians have the right to officially claim that they are married,’ he told his 3,668 Facebook friends.

Muslim leader on gays: “We are afraid if we come out with our opinion then the left may abandon us”

In addressing the taboo topic of why Muslims have been so quiet in the debate about same-sex marriage, Ali Kadri, spokesperson for the Islamic Council of Queensland in Australia, states that the “left side” has been the staunchest defender of gays and Muslims, so for Muslims to declare their opposition to homosexuality would risk losing the support of the “left side.”

Vancouver Pride float that protested Sharia law was acceptable in 2011, but banned in 2017

Shawn Shirazi is angry about cultural relativism and the growing unwillingness of people here to criticize radical Islam for fear of being labelled racist or Islamophobic.

Born in Iran, Shirazi immigrated to Vancouver where he became a founding member of Cirque de So Gay, an activist group of gay and transgender Middle Eastern men. For several years, the group marched in the Pride Parade and even won an award for their originality. But this year, its application was rejected as “culturally insensitive.”

The rejection is a microcosm of what Shirazi calls “hypocrisy” when it comes to global human rights, but what others argue is showing respect for other cultures and religious traditions.

Gay Muslims vow to ‘boldly’ challenge Islam on LGBT persecution

GAY ex-Muslims have vowed to challenge Islam and any other faiths that persecute the LGBT community, following their attendance at a Pride parade.

Members of the Council of ex-Muslims of Britain took to the streets of the capital with a series of controversial banners, in a public display of unity.

Among their least controversial signs were: “We’re here. We’re kaffir [unbelievers]. Get used to it”, “Celebrating apostasy,” and “Make LGBT rights universal”.

They also displayed a list of Muslim states that punish homosexuality with the death penalty – including Iran, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Yemen and Pakistan.
