Ketter & Geest



Op de Britse site Pink Paper kwamen wij het bericht tegen dat islamisten een gebied in Oost-Londen tot homovrije zone hebben uitgeroepen. Homo’s zijn daar, volgens de aanplakbiljetten niet langer welkom. Verboden voor homo’s. Op affiches en de stickers zie je een regenboog met een streep erdoor.

Hier is het bericht:

Islamists in East London have sparked anger after flyposting stickers which called for a gay-free zone. The stickers were distributed around the Whitechapel, Shoreditch and Poplar areas over the weekend. Specifically, they were targeted at schools and pubs, including the gay-friendly George and Dragon.

The professionally produced, anonymous stickers say: “Arise and Warn. Gay free zone. Verily Allah is severe in punishment.”

The ‘Gay free zone’ slogan is within a diagonal bar across a rainbow flag.

Equality campaigner Peter Tatchell – who has been attacked by Muslim groups three times in the capital – condemned the behaviour. He said: “These stickers are part of a trend by Islamists and fundamentalists to target LGBT people. It is happening at universities and in communities. The main victims of this hate-mongering are LGBT Muslims.

“I appeal to Muslim religious and political leaders in East London to speak out against homophobia. We need a clear statement from the leader of Tower Hamlets council and from the senior imam at the East London Mosque. They should publicly condemn homophobia and call for tolerance within the Muslim community.

“Both homophobia and anti-Muslim bigotry are wrong. Our communities know the pain of prejudice. LGBT and Muslim people should stand together, united against hate,” he added.
