The Islamic Business Community and Professionals has backed the eight parliamentarians who are pushing for the legislation against Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer (LGBTQ+) activities in the country.

In a statement, the group described the LGBTQ+ activities as satanic which is against the Holy Quran.

Citing sections from the Holy Book, the Professionals stated that accepting the activities in the country will result to “an impending doom or disaster on our generation and businesses.”

1. As committed Muslims, and referencing the Quran as our Holy book, Allah completely prohibits the act and punishes severely individuals or nations who allow such practices to thrive:

“And as for the two of you men who are guilty of lewdness, punish them..” (Quran 4:16), again in another verse, “When our (Allah’s) command came, we turned the city (Sodom) upside down and rained layers upon layers of clay on it.” (Quran 11:83), to add, “And we let rainfall on them. Look how that was the end of the wrongdoers.” (Quran 7:84), and further readings, “He (Lut) said: help me, my Lord, against the people who cause disaster.”

2. As young businessmen and successful professionals, the clarity of impending doom or disaster on our generation and businesses due to this evil and satanic sexual preference and practice of a few is not lost on me and thereby answering duties call to support this bill.

We are certain that, If this bill passes, our generation will continue to have a normal business and human activity for the economic advancement of not only ourselves but that for our families and the country at large, without inviting the anger of Allah, the premise on this despicable act, upon our country in the same manner as those described in the Holy Quran in Sodom.

The scientific proof linking sodomy to the spread of HIV/AiDs and other sexually transmitted diseases constitutes another cristal reason our association supports the above Bill, more so, to guard against exposing the already venerable zongo communities to a greater risk thus diminishing the gains made so far.

On the basis of the above, we unequivocally state our support for the Private Members’ Bill sponsored by some Members of Parliament to criminalized LGBTQ+ activities in Ghana.

We further commend the courage, professionalism, and sustained strength of Hon. Samual Nortey George and all those who have worked effortlessly on this bill. Together we shall win.

We remain committed to protecting the values and norms of our beloved country Ghana. https://919eab234500f8dcb82123c259bf12d6.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-38/html/container.html
