Here's how muslims treat their gay sons and daughters....

Where's the outrage from the gay community???
A UK charity is dealing with an increasing number of young gay Muslims becoming homeless after fleeing forced marriages and so-called honour violence.

During a weekly drop-in group held by the Albert Kennedy Trust in London, Suni, a 20-year-old London student, helps himself to a warm mince pie and a steaming cup of coffee.

In 2008, during a holiday to Pakistan to visit relatives, his parents suspected the truth about his sexuality. They believed marriage would "cure" him of what they considered to be a psychological disorder.

"They told me I'm going to be forced into marriage and they're looking for a girl and I'll be married in two to three months and I won't be able to come back to London," Suni said.

When he refused, he was imprisoned in his family's ancestral home in a remote village of Pakistan and subjected to regular beatings and abuse as he had brought "shame" on the strict Muslim family.

I think I'd be vulnerable if people knew about me - I've heard a lot of remarks in the past about people saying that gay people should die for religious reasons

"I stayed there for three months and he was always beating me. He was telling me I had blackened our family name and he was saying it's a sin. I know it was just for honour."

Suni managed to escape and return to the UK, penniless and homeless.

Relatives and friends were reluctant to help him due to fear of violent reprisals from his family.

After a night spent in a police cell, he was put in touch with the trust, which helped find him safe accommodation.

Trust worker Annie Southerst said in the past six months there has been an increase in the number of Muslims coming to them for help.

"They face threats of physical violence, actual violence and restriction of liberties," she said.

"We've had people chased out of the house with knives and we have had issues around young people who had exorcisms planned to get rid of the gay demons, I suppose.

"They come to us because they're homeless, or in danger of being homeless imminently. We sort out emergency accommodation for them.

"But the biggest loss they face is the loss of their families.

Meanwhile, in the UK, terrorists like Choudhory et alia get tens of thousands of pounds in welfare and beautiful homes in which to raise their dozens of brainwashed offspring who will seek to destroy the West. How about housing and subsidizing the gays and throwing the hetero terrorists and their litters out in the street - in fact, why not out of the country?

how ironic can it get. under the banner of freedom of religion and expression we allow Muslims full protection under out laws, who in turn, want all gays dead, as well as all non Muslims.

The more Muslims flourish in the West the more at risk women, gays and minorities become. wake up!

I cannot understand how a parent would put ANYTHING before the well-being of their child, including religion or what anyone else thinks (that whole honour-twist).

How can people see this, from killing girls for not wanting to enter arranged marriages to beating or killing young men for being who they are - how can people see this and still think there is any morality in such behaviour?

It boggles my mind!

I'm not gay,
But my child is .
And I would destroy anyone who tried to hurt him for any reason.
Fact is , None of us woke up one morning saying to ourselves "Gee I think I'll be Hetero" or I think I like boys like me.
It don't work that way !
God made each and everyone of us the way he wanted us !

i am a Hindu. i follow multiple gods or goddesses pattern of worship though this religion say God is one.. So my belief is secular. I don't have a fundamental approach towards Gods or Goddesses or the so called holy texts.

islam destroyed civilization, humans, texts and culture. They are still doing them. Where is the end of it. They stay with us and plan against us when they start taking their self sufficient breath. irony.. or stupidity or what... i can say.. they are not humans who hates the humans of some other order. its just like one demands other to wear a jacket that is allergic. God and Goddesses are very personal.

i think Islam is a threat to free thinking patterns of human beings.

I'm a Muslim myself, but I hate those families who try to banish their own kid from their life just because of their sexuality.

It's sad that while there are Muslims who fully support the gay community, we are buried under the typical stereo-type gay-hating Muslim families.
