Group accused of handing out anti-gay death sentence leaflets
Fundamental religion based hate for Gays in England comes from a group at a Mosque. Like the Hate groups AFA, Westboro Baptist, Family Research Council, and even the Catholic Bishop protesting the gay pride event in the US, these guys will probably try to paint themselves as victims of religious discrimination.
A group of men handed out a leaflet calling for homosexuals to be given the death sentence, a court has heard.
The five men from Derby are said to have distributed notices titled The Death Penalty? outside a mosque and put them through people’s letterboxes.
The men deny stirring up hatred on the grounds of sexual orientation.
The prosecution at Derby Crown Court called the literature, given out in the lead up to a gay pride event in 2010, as “frightening”.
Ihjaz Ali, 42, Mehboob Hussain, 45, Umar Javed, 38, Razwan Javed, 27, and Kabir Ahmen, 28, have said the leaflets were designed to “raise awareness”.
‘Punished by hanging’
The court heard the leaflet was one of three distributed by the group as it tried to organise a protest against Derby’s Gay Pride event in July 2010.
It showed an image of a mannequin hanging from a noose and said gay people were destined to go to hell
Prosecutor Bobbie Cheema said a copy was handed to a police officer near Jamia Mosque, on Rosehill Street in Derby, on 2 July 2010.
