Cleric who preached death for homosexual acts and toured Orlando visits Sydney
A controversial British cleric who toured Orlando in March and preaches that "death is the sentence" for homosexual acts is scheduled to speak in Sydney throughout June.
Farrokh Sekaleshfar, a British-born doctor and senior Shia Muslim scholar, travelled to Orlando two months ago to give a lecture about homosexuality in Islamic law.
He said in a 2013 lecture in Michigan on the same subject that "death is the sentence for homosexual acts" in Islam and this was "nothing to be embarrassed about".
