Muslim cleric who advocated death penalty for homosexual acts leaves Australia
A British sheikh who advocated death as the penalty for homosexual acts has left Australia ahead of a decision to revoke his visa.
The immigration minister, Peter Dutton, told Sky New on Wednesday he had already decided to cancel the sheikh's visa and he was unlikely to be allowed to return.
The Australian government chose to review the visa of the Shia Muslim cleric Farrokh Sekaleshfar after a video surfaced of him telling a Michigan audience in 2013 that "death is the sentence for homosexual acts" in Islam and this was "nothing to be embarrassed about".
