Supreme Court verdict on homosexuality will lead sexual anarchy: Muslim organizations

By Muslim Mirror Special Correspondent,

New Delhi: Prominent Muslim organizations also reacted to the Supreme Court’s verdict decriminalizing homosexuality by partly striking down Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code. They said it will lead sexual anarchy and moral decay in the society as it was against the ethos of all religions and the law of nature.

Jamaat-e-Islami Hind (JIH) on Thursday expressed its disappointment over the judgement. JIH Secretary General, Muhammad Salim Engineer said it is dismayed and disappointed over the Supreme Court verdict to legalize homosexual behavior between two consenting adults, effectively scrapping section 377 of IPC and overturning the earlier judgment of the Delhi High Court.

It may be recalled that JIH along with leaders of different religious organisations had welcomed the decision of the Supreme Court (delivered on 11 Dec 2013) wherein the SC had refused to do away with section 377 and persisted with the view that homosexuality is a criminal offence. With that historic decision, the apex court had kept the country from going on to the path of moral degradation. But today the SC has ruled that ‘human sexuality cannot be confined to a binary and that homosexuality is not a mental disorder’.

He said by decriminalizing homosexuality and permitting male-male and female-female marriage will destroy the family system and prevent the natural evolution and progress of the human race. Jamaat firmly believes in the fundamental rights of all citizens and is a strong advocate of freedom and minority rights. However we wish to remind fellow citizens that with freedom comes moral responsibility and no society can accept crimes, vices and anarchy in the name of freedom and personal liberty. We will persevere to educate the people and exercise all democratic options to resist this shameful perversion and decadence in values which ignores religious teachings, our culture and the opinion of the overwhelming majority of the people. Such filthy experiments have destroyed human society and violated the rights of women on large scale in certain countries and we should learn a lesson from it,” cascading effect.

He appealed to the citizens, the government and all political parties that to “save this country from falling into sexual anarchy, protect our children from vile sexual predators, safeguard the rights of our daughters and sisters and prevent the infringement of the fundamental rights of its citizens as the abrogation of section 377 of IPC will have a cascading effect on the Personal Laws of many religions. We sincerely hope and pray that the country will be rescued from the dark precipice it is rushing headlong into.

Echoing the same sentiments, Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind (M) said the verdict is against India’s religious and cultural ethos and values. JUHwarned that the verdict would further compound and aggravate the sexual anarchy in the country.

JUH General Secretary, Maulana Mahmood Madani underlined that our society has already been in the grip of sexual violence and crimes against women. In this context, the apex court verdict is perplexing which may give impetus to sexual misconduct and crime. He said the Supreme Court should have stick to its earlier verdict delivered in 2013 in which the court had refused to do away with section 377 and persisted with the view that homosexuality is a criminal offence.

Maulana Madani passionately argued that homosexuality is against the law of nature that will lead to moral decay and disorder in the society and will increase sexual crimes and violence as we are witnessing daily.

Countering the argument of those who advocate homosexuality as part of fundamental rights, Jamiat leader said this shameful act will destroy the family system and will make cascading effect on the progress of human race.

You cannot push the whole society into sexual anarchy and moral decadence for the sake of a few people who championed homosexuality as fundamental rights, Maulana Madani said.

Such people (homo sexual) have been existed since the ancient times but every divine book described homosexuality as ‘unnatural sex and a crime against humanity and nature’, he further said.

Maulana Madani said Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind also focused on the moral training of youth as the country cannot put on the path of progress without the moral training of youths.

However, by allowing and decriminalizing same sex will make parents jittery about their wards who want to cultivate and nurture good values in them, he added.

  1. Honorable Supreme Court is promoting “unnatural anal sexual perversion” (prevalent now in minority) and making that as an acceptable deviation of norm — thus spreading filthy relationships, HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases and break-down of family moral values.
    Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed by divine wrath as mentioned clearly in Quraan and Bible scriptures–for these very crimes of lesbianism and homosexuality in gay males.

  2. Judgement or judges say minorities must not suffer on account of ideas of morality of the majority. Also right to privacy. Also justice and equality. Also inclusive society where individual likes and dislikes can’t be regulated by majority ethics. In so doing they say they upheld constitutional morality meaning constitutional article 377 was in way unconstitutional!!! Supreme court has thus ruled in favour of justice and secularism. For the same reason it ruled against personal law. So when will Supreme court in this similar way strike down articles of the constitution that promote communalism in otherwise secular constitution? The cow slaughter ban is to avert hurting of religious feelings of Hindus,a majority morality doing injustice to the minorities and striking down the right to eat what they like and a right to privacy as well. Another communal anti muslims article is people of this religion can’t get reservations because they belong to this religion even if all commissions appointed by government have unanimously upheld that muslims are a step down the dalits in jobs and opportunities in all fields and require reservations. The anti muslims constitution provision deprives even those who were getting reservations after they accept Islam though criteria of being down trodden remaining the same!!! Supreme court bulldozes muslim personal law proudly saying that religion can’t come in the way of constitutional justice and morality. The same Supreme court, though knowing fully well that muslims status is going from bad to worse as confirmed by all commissions of inquiry,shys away,runs away from its duty of striking down inbuilt communalism of the constitution under the pretext that Islam has no cast system!!! Lo and behold!! how respectful is the Supreme court to Islam this time unlike at the time of bulldosing the laws of the same religion in the name of constitutional justice for all. The double standards all the way by judges and the politicians alike when it comes to MUSLIMS. Shame,Shame, Shame upon you,the shameless. My apologies if it hurts you. Do I have the freedom of expression at least?
