I don’t understand why Muslims are so anti human-rights, barbaric, cruel and inhumane? On 16th July Islamic militants killed a Yemeni man accused of being homo-sexual. I won’t blame these Islamic militants alone for their barbarity, Prophet Muhammad is equally responsible for such act, as he said in his authentic hadith:
Abu Dawud (4462) – The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “Whoever you find doing the action of the people of Loot, execute the one who does it and the one to whom it is done.”.
There are other ahadith too which command Muslims to kill or execute those who are gay or homosexual. The very base of Islam has barbarity and inhumanity. Read the news: Al-Qaeda militants kill Yemeni “gay” (from AFP)
The attackers from the Ansar al-Sharia group, which is on the US terror list, opened fire at 20-year-old Hashem al-Asmi late Monday in the provincial capital of Huj, the source told AFP, adding that the gunmen fled on their motorbike after killing Asmi.
The attackers who “accused the man of being gay… belong to Ansar al-Shariah,” the source said on condition of anonymity.
Ansar al-Sharia is the local branch of Al-Qaeda in Yemen where the network, although weakened, is still active mainly in the southern and eastern parts of the country.
Al-Qaeda loyalists seized large swathes of Yemen’s south and east in 2011, taking advantage of a decline in central government control during an 11-month uprising that forced veteran president Ali Abdullah Saleh from power.
Yemeni government troops have since recaptured much of the territory with support from US drone strikes, but the jihadists retain bases in the desert east and frequently carry out hit-and-run attacks using unlicensed motorbikes.
During their control of these areas, the militants had tried to impose a strict version of sharia (Islamic law) on residents, executing or lashing citizens they accused of various crimes. They had also severed the hands of many accused of burglary.
