In an ideal society we would punish homosexuals', says Islamic cleric in BBC interview
by Scott Roberts
The Chairman of the Islamic Centre in Luton believes gay people would be punished in an ideal world of Britain resembling an Islamic state.
Abdul Qadeer Baksh made the remarks last Wednesday during a radio interview on BBC Three Counties alongside the former English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson.
Mr Baksh stated "In an ideal society" there would be "punishments for homosexuals". Whilst stressing that it was unlikely Britain would ever adopt Sharia law, he indicated that his personal preference would be to live in a society that followed the code – with no acceptance of homosexuality.
