Homosexuality is considered to be one of the worst sins in Islam and one of the greatest crimes punishable under Islamic law.[1] The Prophet Muhammad not only condemned homosexuality[2] but even the "appearance" of homosexuality (effeminate men and masculine women).[3] With the rise of the Islamic population amongst historically non-Muslim societies, also comes the rise in persecution. For example, while Muslims comprise just 2% of the total British population, they commit 25% of all anti-Homosexual crimes.[4] However, this ongoing and increasing persecution of homosexuals by Muslims around the world, rarely makes the mainstream news. Thanks to the Internet, those of us who search can find many news items that would otherwise be lost.
