Politics or Homophobia? :by Dr. Waheed

10 Mar

Dr. Abdulla Waheed writes:

Pedophilia of any hue, be it heterosexual, homosexual or incestuous, is a heinous crime that must be condemned in the strongest words and punished with the harshest penalties. There is no dearth of any of these varieties of sexual abuse of children in the Maldives. However, the homosexual variety appears to be singled out for public outrage.

Currently there are fast expanding Face Book groups calling for imposing the death penalty on one Mr. Hussein Fazeel, who is under investigation for homosexual child abuse. However, when some months back, a former official of a prestigious government office was exposed after he allegedly had sexual intercourse with his own daughter for several years, the Face Book groups were missing. After being the topic of gossip for a few weeks, the public appears to have forgotten the whole affair. Why this difference?

Is there any moral or religious reasons for this difference. Even though I am not a religious expert, I don’t see any reason why incest with one’s daughter is a lesser sin compared with homosexual child abuse. Fornication is punishable with Hadd and according to some scholars stoning to death, whereas no such punishment is prescribed in Islam for sodomy.

    there are more than five marriages i know, in male’… which men are more than 40 years old and children were only sixteen when they got married. five of these marriages were performed out of male’ in srilanka, because the shariah and law here didnt allow it.In one case, the sixteen year old girl was not even sixteen when she got married. when she came to male after marriage she was pregnant, but she was sixteen by then.The shariah and law in male’ pronounced them as husband and wife and now the girl is 21 have four kids. divorced cause she finally came to senses, which shariah and law didnt have. the man is now 50. What does shariah and law has to say about this, and also the the most unique and the most MMAAAAI DDHEEEN ISLAAM DHEEN has to say about this? This is what i call child abuse, which has a legal lisence. What does islam call it?

    islam does not allow a paedophile to marry 4 adolescent girls. islam allows more than one wife under very specific conditions. it does not promote paedophilia. it prohibits sex out of marriage.

    if shariah also allows a pedophile to marry 4 adolescent girls, i’d rather not learn more about it.

    You need to learn more on Islam and Shariah. The Quran specifically mentions that same sex intercourse is forbidden. See Homosexuality in the Qur’an. The Abdullah Yusuf Ali translation of the Qur’an states, in Al-A’raf: “We also sent Lut: He said to his people: Do ye commit lewdness such as no people in creation (ever) committed before you? For ye practice your lusts on men in preference to women: ye are indeed a people transgressing beyond bounds. And his people gave no answer but this: they said, “Drive them out of your city: these …This alone is enough for any person with a mind to realize the great sin in this act.
