Iraqi Minister Mukteda Sadr , one of the most influential figures in Iraqi politics, rejected science and blamed the worldwide outbreak of the coronavirus for gay marriages. Sadr criticizes both Iraq and the whole world.
Iraqi Minister Mukteda Sadr has been criticized for accusing countries of the coronavirus epidemic that has legalized legal marriages around the world. Sadr is called to stop targeting gays and think about science.
What did SADR say?
Sadr said in his social media post on Saturday that one of the main causes of the crown virus epidemic was the legalization of gay marriage and urged governments that had legislated in that direction to “resign” immediately.
THE ENGLISH AMBASSADOR: WE ARE PROUD OF THIS LAW
One of the first reactions to Sadr came from the British ambassador to Baghdad, Stephen Hickey. “Britain is proud of the law of equality, it will not change that law. Instead, let’s work together to build a better base based on medical and scientific advice and win the fight against the corona virus. ”
“TAKES THE FEAR OF UNKNOWN”
Amir Ashour, director of IraQueer, who defends the rights of homosexuals in Iraq, replied to the minister and said: “We believe that these tweets not only scientifically mislead the public, but also seek to transform the current situation into a weapon and use people’s fear of the unknown to intensify homosexual attacks. ” he said. Ashour also claimed that Mukteda Sadr had previously committed torture and murder.
Rasan NGOs said: “Iraqi politicians continue to deceive their nations and avoid accountability. It’s a shame and surprising that a name like Mukteda Sadr doesn’t know what’s going on, but accuses an excluded part of society as a source of Covid-19. ”
