Islam kicks against homosexuality

Sunyani, July 21, GNA - The Brong-Ahafo Regional Chief Imam, Alhaji Sheikh Umar Abdul Kaadr, has said Islam would not support any political party or politician who would allow or tolerate the practice of homosexuality in the country.

He said Islam regarded homosexuality 93as a big sin and even more dangerous than a man and a woman committing adultery".

In an interview with the Ghana News Agency on Wednesday Sheikh Kaadr stated that people caught indulging in the obnoxious practice should be punished.

He said the holy Quran talks against such acts and any one found practicing homosexuality or lesbianism cannot be supported by the Islamic religion because that person wanted to destroy the religion.

He said the peace and development Ghanaians were enjoying was because such acts were not allowed and added 93If it is legalized Allah's anger will come upon us as he did to Sodom and Gomorrah".

Sheikh Kaadr hazardous jobs in the country were undertaken by Muslim youth because of their low level of education and appealed to parents to at least see their children through senior high school education.

Sheikh Kaadr cautioned politicians not to involve the youth in violent politics and advised them to seek the interest of the nation first and stop the politics of insults.
