Film Director Faraz Arif Ansari today took to Twitter to allege that he has been receiving death threats after he called out Islamists for their homophobic tweets under #WhySoProud hashtag earlier this week.
I’ve been getting open death threats on Instagram today since I called out on how deeply problematic the #WhySoProud trend is. They want to throw me off roofs, stone me down and punish me until I die. Congratulations, fellow Muslims. Achievement unlocked. I hope y’all are proud.— Faraz Arif Ansari (@futterwackening) July 2, 2020
He said that the Islamists have threatened to throw him off the roofs, stone him and punish him until he dies.
Earlier he had taken to Twitter to call out homophobic Islamists who were trending ‘WhySoProud’ and said that discrimination and hate is haram, unlike homosexuality.
Dear Muslims who are homophobic,— Faraz Arif Ansari (@futterwackening) July 1, 2020
Your hatred is haram. Your discrimination is haram. If your hatred leads to someone’s depression or worse, remember, you will be called on the Day of Judgement for making lives miserable. Before you say, #WhySoProud ask yourself, #WhySoHateful?🏳️🌈
Earlier this week, many Islamists had taken to Twitter to voice their opinion and claim that homosexuality is a sin and ‘Haram’ as per Quran. Some Islamists said that since Muslims are answerable to Allah, they need to understand that homosexuality is Haram in Islam.
A homosexual himself, Faraz Arif Ansari has directed movies like Sisak and Sheer Qorma.
Homosexuality and Islam
As per Quran, ‘People of Lot’ were destroyed by the ‘wrath of God’ because men had sex with men. Some Hadith collections also condemn homosexuality and transgender acts. Male homosexual acts are prescribed death penalty. Many Islamic countries have death penalty for homosexuality.
