Australia: Gay Muslim granted asylum after being threatened by his family and a Muslim cleric

gay-hangingYet gay advocates in the U.S. such as Theresa Sparks and Chris Stedman attacked Pamela Geller and me for calling attention to the institutionalized mistreatment of gays under Islamic law. Their gay advocacy doesn’t extend to standing up to Sharia oppression of gays, even though that oppression is far more virulent and violent than anything from “right-wing extremists” in the U.S. And you can’t blame them: given the Leftist/jihadist alliance, it’s clear that if they spoke out against Sharia mistreatment of gays, they would no longer be invited to the best parties, and might even be branded as “right-wing.” Their moral cowardice and duplicity, however, are obvious.

“Indian gay student granted asylum in Australia,” CanIndia, April 24, 2014 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

A gay Indian student, who fled his country to escape his oppressive family and an arranged marriage, has been granted refugee status in Australia.

The 25-year-old commerce graduate, who lives with his ­boyfriend in New South Wales (NSW), was granted asylum by Australia’s Refugee Review Tribunal, The Australian reported Wednesday.

He arrived on a student visa in March 2009 to study for a diploma in business management but withdrew from the course after six months.

When the man last ­returned to his home city of ­Hyderabad in India in 2011, he claimed that his father locked him in a bedroom and pressured him to enter into an arranged marriage.

He alleged that his male cousins also assaulted him, twisting his nose and holding a knife against his throat. The student claimed that he was also threatened by a local Islamic cleric.

The student escaped his family home with the help of a female friend. He hid in her house until he got a return ticket to reach Australia, the report said.

Australia’s immigration department in July 2012 accepted that the asylum-seeker was homosexual but rejected the claim that the mistreatment amounted to persecution.

It also observed that he could safely move to another Indian city to escape danger.

The Refugee Review Tribunal ruled that if he returned to Hyderabad it was “reasonable to believe he would be assaulted and probably forced to marry, and if he were to refuse he would probably face more serious harm and be killed”.

“If the applicant were to return and try to relocate, this would result in his being disowned by his family and probably they would seek to find and harm him,” the tribunal found.

“I also accept that he would not be able to live openly as a homosexual in India at any location as, if he did, this would result in ostracism and probable further significant harm,” the tribunal observed.

The man, a devout Muslim, believed that Allah was “his protector”, the tribunal heard.

It also heard that the man and his partner, whom he met a day after arriving in Australia, registered to marry in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT).

“We are committed to be together for life… the law in Australia treats everyone as equal,” his boyfriend told the tribunal.

    He will need to be careful of the muslim vigilante squads in Australia, home of the “uncovered meat” imam.

    • Jax Tolmen says

      As an Australian living in Western Sydney, home to the largest Muslim population in the country, I can say that I’ve never once witnessed ‘Muslim Vigilante Squads’ anywhere.

      That being said, I have witnessed many gangs of Muslim youth who seem mostly preoccupied with getting into fights with other gangs, and harassing women from their cars. As yet we don’t seem to have the same problems as the UK with their morality patrols and similar garbage.

      It’s a common sight in the West, cars full of cat calling Lebanese and Syrian migrants being more annoying than actually dangerous.

      • joeb says

        I recently saw an episode of ‘Bondi Rescue’ on TV in the UK. There was a gang of “young men intent on trouble”. They were sexually harassing women, grabbing bums and boobs as they pleased according to the girls on camera. And, what’s that? Oh, some of them have a beard with no tache. How interesting! One girl who refused islamic advances was punched in the face and left with a bloody nose for her trouble. The “young men” disappeared into the crowd, and weren’t caught.

        • Reality Check says

          I guess this is the advantage of living in a relatively poor Eastern European country. Our welfare system is hardly enough for our own people and the Muslims know it, so they bypass us and go to the West. They know there is nothing to suck here, so they go to the rich countries along the Atlantic shoreline.

          I never thought something good could arise from poverty but in these times of peaceful Muslim conquest, it seems better to be poor than rich.

          Hence the Muslim bullies do not come to harass our women but go to the West. It’s because we don’t have the large free houses and bags of free benefits the British offer so stupidly to everybody whose complexion is the right shade of brown and whose religion is Pisslam.

      • Reality Check says

        This is a yet another post making a reference to the
        Lebanese as a source of sexual harassment for women and I’m beginning to think that this is not accidental at all.

        Bilal Skaf and his brother, Mohammed Skaf, who gang-raped countless Australian girls together with their friends, were Lebanese.

        Their lovely, saintly Muslim mother, Baria Skaf, who screamed in the Australian court upon the conviction of her sons “It’s not a crime to fuck a white slut!”, was Lebanese.

        Another Skaf from Lebanon, a woman named Aline, was a daughter-in-law to the Lybian dictator, Moamar Qadafi. Guess what she did? If memory doesn’t fail me, she poured boiling water on her Ethiopian nanny’s head because the poor girl refused to beat one of her children.

        A Finish woman married to a Saudi man keeps a blog called “Blue Abaya”, where she said that the men who were twice more likely to attack a foreign woman at a Saudi party were Lebanese.

        Too much coincidence. And where there is too much coincidence, there is a pattern.

  2. Bronson says

    Well in this instance the Tribunal appears to have not followed the usual rule of Islam trumps Homosexuality but what’s the bet that if a Pakistani Christian or Coptic Egyptian tried this the Tribunal would have them deported forthwith.

  3. Veracious_one says

    what? Muslim man runs away from an ‘arranged’ marriage…smells fishy….he’s up to something…

    • Jax Tolmen says

      It may have something to do with the fact he is a homosexual. Unless it was an arranged marriage to another man, I can’t see why he would want to be forced into an arranged marriage; regardless of his religion.

  4. Curious Teenager says

    I’m not going to say I agree with gay marriage or anything gay (if you want to hate, hate, I’m used to it) but I find it sad that this man had to run away in order to get away from his oppressive family and the people that share his religion. So much for Islam being the religion of peace and acceptants…

    • PAthena says

      Gay marriage is ridiculous. Any adults can live together, with or without sexual relations (except for incest), they can make whatever financial arrangements they want. Society has an interest in marriage – real marriage between male and female, what you find everywhere in the animal kingdom – because of children; it has no interest in whether homosexuals are in permanent or temporary relationships. So-called “gay marriage” is undermining real marriage. Homosexuals living together should not be allowed to adopt children. Will polygamy and polyandry be the next to be promoted?

      • Reality Check says

        You two are so refreshingly politically incorrect. I’m not very enthusiastic about gay marriage, either, but gay adoption is what really disgusts me.

        That being said, I do believe gays should be left alone and not bothered, beaten, stoned and all Islamic delights you could think about.

        But adoption? NEVER. NEVER-EVER! What are those Western officials thinking they are doing – twisting the minds and the sexual orientation of young children, who are the future of any civilized country!

        • PJG says

          Maybe we’ve gone past “post-modern” and have already entered the “post-civilized” state.

  5. Jay Boo says

    Bow those heads in shame
    What??? Insha Allah you claim
    oooooooooohhhh Yuh
    Yet Islam is still not a religion

    Can’t pin this all on Allah
    The whole world knows about your OOO Ya Allah
    Muslim It is YOU WHO SPEAKS for Allah
    unh huh unh huh
    Bow those heads in shame
    Go on and Say it ain’t so
    Allah is every Muslim’s disgrace

  6. PJG says

    But he still adores gay-hating Islam and the creepy prophet.
    Oh well, at least if he’s gay he can’t raise more Muslim children.
    Oh, wait…times have changed. “Two daddies”. Terrific. Will this set a precedent, and “gay Muslims” flock to Australia and demand the “right” to marry and adopt children? Can gay Muslims have more than one “wife”? Now there’s a question for progressive, modern, reform-minded Western imams.

  7. Pradman says

    Indian, muslim and gay? he could fit into many Indian cities. All muslim men are gay anyway.

  8. Reality Check says

    I risk becoming cynical here but is there any chance he made up the harassment story to get an asylum permit? It’s all based on “claimed” and “alleged”. Nobody in Australia ever witnessed his family’s treatment of him, so it’s all say-so and nothing else.

    I simply don’t trust anything a Muslim says – that’s it. They will say anything to get to a good non-Muslim country – and since Islam gives them a licence to lie, they will lie their way into just anything.

    • joeb says

      This is the other side to my comment below, and I lean more towards Reality Check’s than my own…

  9. joeb says

    He’ll still have to look over his shoulder in Australia. Plenty of ‘cultural enrichment’ there, now…

  10. RonaldB says

    I agree with you that if he remains a Muslim he should not be admitted to Australia as a persecuted refugee.

    There are many reasons to keep him out.

    The first is that as a devout Muslim, he adds political support to the Muslim groups providing political pressure to import more Muslims and to implement sharia gradually. It’s time that countries adopted the principle that immigration is for the benefit of the host country, and cannot be triggered simply because the immigrant wishes to change countries, or even needs to change countries.

    The second reason is simply that his story is simply fishy. He is persecuted on the basis of Muslim teaching, and yet remains a devout Muslim. Does this add up? He seems to have discovered a way to practice taquiya to fool the infidels and he doesn’t even have to pretend to renounce Islam to do it. He simply relates a story of family persecution. As an added bonus, he doesn’t even have to go to the trouble of showing that he couldn’t move to another city in India. The immigration authorities are willing to go along with the claim that his family “may” hunt him down.

    All in all, I hold the belief that the only valid refugee from Islamic persecution who even begins to be eligible for immigration is one who publicly renounces Islam and agrees to be deported should he ever “revert” back to Islam.

    • Reality Check says

      I totally agree with you but if citizenship becomes contingent upon the renunciation of Islam, there will be dozens of “apostates” in next to no time. These people have no problem lying – Islam allows it.

      The only solution is “Don’t approve any applications from Muslims. You simply can’t trust anything a Muslim says.”

      India is a vast country. He could hide in any Indian city where the advantage of already speaking the language would be at his disposal.

      What does he do? He goes nearly 5,000 miles to the East claiming persecution for being gay (ah, persecution – the Muslims’ favourite gag) and that’s something nobody can confirm.

      Let’s face it: the guy probably wanted an Australian passport and probably made up the harassment story to evoke some public sympathy for himself, though if he is a liar, he is playing a very dangerous game, indeed. Some Australian Muslim may believe him and overreact and kill him on the spot.

      It is about time Western immigration authorities stopped taking harassment stories from Muslims in good faith – the Muslim world is such that somebody harasses somebody every day. If we had to take every victim of alleged harassment here, we would have to take them all, to the last person. The Muslim world would be depopulated.

      Sometimes I have the feeling that the immigration authorities are stricter with non-Muslims than Muslims.

  11. Carolyne says

    Once upon a time in America, there were quotas for each country when it came to immigration. Europeans had higher quotas because it was thought they could contribute more to sociey
    Homosexuals were not allowed to enter.
    I don’t think’s that’s all bad.

    • Jay Boo says

      Muslims wash their bloodied hands before they pray.
      When dogs pee on the grave of Muhammad, Satan is honored.

    • Kepha says

      Well, a goodly chunk of my family is Far Eastern, so I have mixed feelings about the quote system.

      In church, we’ve had to make space for ex-Muslims, too.

      However, as I’ve said before, when it comes to the perverts, we ought to make them swim back.

    • Mazo says

      The same America which illegally invaded Hawaii, invaded China in the Boxer Rebellion and then violated the Bates Treaty and invaded the Moros in Mindanao? I say if you are bullying other countries and sending your troops and merchants there to rip the locals off, don’t complain when immigrants start coming into your country.

  12. says

    The leftists don’t know what side to take when gays and Muslims clash. So they try to ignore current events like that. CBC Radio, Canada’s public radio voice, is so in love with both groups that they can scarce praise anything else, with the exception of feminism, of course. How feminism, gays, and Muslims fit together is a puzzle that no one may be able to figure out.

  13. Jay Boo says

    Carolyne

    A photo of men hanging by a noose in the name of Allah (Satan) and all you can come up with is that.

    There is no excuse for Islam
    No comment on Muslims being allowed in with their filthy ideology of Muhammad written in the unholy satanic hate-speech-porn manual Qur’an.
    All Muslim men are repressed homosexuals anyway beginning with the Serpent of Satan Muhammad.

  14. says

    “The man, a devout Muslim, believed that Allah was “his protector”, the tribunal heard.”

    Stockholm Syndrome at best. He believes in and supports the very same monster that wants to kill him and, short of that, to make his life a living hell.

    Above, the chinese mohammedan – chinese, and mohammedan – accuses the Yanks of “bullying” and of imperialism.

    ROFLMAO. Pot. Kettle. Black. Also, a blatant use of Tu Quoque.

    Let’s just focus on Islam: the Arab National or, rather, Imperial Religion, a vehicle of Arab supremacism, a cult of enslavement, rapine, pillage, and mass murder. Let’s contemplate the de facto empire of Islam that stretches from Morocco to the East Indies and from southern Russia to about halfway down Africa.

    It’s pretty ripe-smelling hypocrisy for *Muslims* to accuse Americans of imperialism, bullying, and treaty-breaking!! Muslims had already been carrying on a ruthless imperialism non-stop for 1100 years on three continents before the USA even came into existence. Not to mention that the first Muslim attacks on US merchant ships, off the coasts of northwest Africa and in the Mediterranean, were *totally* unprovoked.

    David Greenfield simply *skewers* the Ummah’s malign and despicable attempts to portray itself as victim even as it steps up its neverending campaign to enslave the entire human race and every inch of planet earth:

    The Dangers of Legitimizing Muslim Grievances

    “Grievance is the stories that Muslims tell themselves to justify their violence.
    To explain why they kill children and why they murder the innocent.
    The list of grievances is an endless as the violence.
    Every act of violence carries its own narrative..

    “Muslim grievances are the frustration of conquerors, the broken teeth of predators who weren’t allowed to feed on the world until their stomachs burst.
    All the lands they couldn’t conquer, the peoples who rebelled against their rule, the inferior civilizations that pushed them back and drove them off…”.

    Let’s just repeat that. “Muslim grievances are the frustration of conquerors, the broken teeth of predators who weren’t allowed to feed on the world until their stomachs burst. ”

    Yes. Andrew Bostom’s the Legacy of Jihad and Serge Trifkovic’s “The Sword of the Prophet” make that chilingly clear.

    Now, back to Greenfield.

    “The fundamental Muslim grievance is that they are not in power, not just in Israel where the world has accepted their demand to be in power as a wholly moral and legitimate demand, or throughout the Muslim world where Western governments have helped bring the Islamists to power with bombs and political pressure. The fundamental grievance is that they are not in power… everywhere.”…

    “People are not innocent, and the [Muslim] conquerors and oppressors of much of the world are certainly a long way from innocent.

    “Historical Islam was a brutal conquering ideology that fed off blood and human misery.

    “No amount of revisionist history will make that go away and the revisionist history is a disgusting insult to the millions killed and the cultures wiped out for the greater glory of Islam.

    “A religion that has never stopped practicing genocide, slavery and repression as religious mandates is the worst positioned to act out the charade of innocence, to pretend that everything was fine until the Ottoman Empire fell and the British and French colonialists replaced the Muslim colonialists and gave the local minorities civil rights instead of a spiked boot in the face.”

      And Tibet was not practicing imperialism when it invaded Qinghai in 1932, only to get utterly thrashed by Hui Muslim General Ma Bufang?

      You were saying something about land being taken away from an invader every they invade, thats just what happened to Tibet.

      Its hilarious coming from an Australian who lives on occupied Aboriginal land.
