The National Chief Imam, Sheikh Usmanu Nuhu Sharubutu, has called on government in particular in the light of the recent outdoor formation of the movement of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex (LGBTQI) persons, to clearly state its stance.
The LGBTI movement has opened a newly acquired community space in Accra, which is making new stories in Ghana.
“Going strictly by the Quranic teachings and the traditions of the holy prophet Mohammed (S.A.W) regarding the non-negotiable prohibition of same sex, the Muslim community in Ghana remains resolutely opposed to any attempt to legalize homosexuality as a way of life,” the Chief Imam indicated in a statement issued on Tuesday, February 23.
He indicated that Islam “stands vehemently opposed to homosexual inclinations because it constitutes a dangerous threat to the existence and sanctity of human family values”.
The statement signed by Chief Imam Sheikh Sharubutu’s Spokesperson, Sheikh Aremeyaw Shaibu, said the mindset of LGBTQI emanates from “Godless, secular, humanistic worldview in which God has no place in the equation”.
“It is therefore contradictory to our national religious worldview as a nation.”
The Chief Imam urgently requested the government to ensure that the LGBTQI community space is immediately closed.
He also called for an immediate review of the law that criminalizes homosexuality in order to make it comprehensive and all-encompassing.
“Finally, we call on all citizens to engage in serious prayers for God’s interventions to free the proponents of LGBTQI from their sinful and deviant world view.”
