TERRORISM of any form is not
justified whether it is stateâ€™s wholesale terrorism or peopleâ€™s retail
Similarly, â€œhomosexualâ€ lifestyle is not justified as it
is waging war against nature and killing the next generations before coming
into this world.
Say â€œNoâ€ to both.
The state terrorism of US in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya,
Syria, and other nations to occupy and control the resources are not justified.
The state terrorism of Israel in Palestine to keep control the lands of
Palestinians is not justified. The Muslim statesâ€™ terror against their people
is not justified. Non-Muslim statesâ€™ terror against their people are not
Similarly, terrorism of any form (even in reaction and
anger) that kills common people --men women, and children-- canâ€™t be justified.
We should denounce all form of terrorism --Kabul to Paris and Baghdad to
Witness the truth. Stand firm.
Similarly, homosexual life style (sodomy) is the waging of
war against nature and against
inherent psychological predilection. It is dishonesty with nature. While
homosexuals derive sexual pleasure, they fail to fulfill the societal
obligation. These people act dishonestly with human society; for, although they
avail the advantages offered by various social institutions, when they have an
opportunity to act, they use their abilities in a manner which not only fails
to serve that society but which positively harms it. Apart from neglecting the
obligations they owe to society, they render themselves incapable of serving
the human race and their own families.
They are stopping next
generations from being born. It will
diminish the human race. They will make extinct the most precious and the best
specie of the world, the human being. We have an obligation to stop them.

â€œAnd remember when We sent Lot [as a
Messenger to his people and he said to them: â€˜Do you realize you practice an
indecency of which no other people in the world were guilty of before you? You
approach men lustfully in place of women. You are a people who exceed all
bounds.â€™ Their only answer was: â€˜Banish them from your town. They are a
people who pretend to be pure.â€™ Then We
delivered Lot and his household, save his wife, who stayed behind, And We let loose a shower [of
stones] upon them, Observe, then, the end of the evil-doers. Quran: Alâ€™Araf (7: 81-85).
It is our moral, religious and social obligation to
resist against it.
Peacefully but firmly.
It is for our own safety. Protect ourselves from Godâ€™s
