Justice Golam Rabbani speaking

Justice Rabbani recently commented with a strong reaction against homosexuality, stating that the Penal code cannot be changed and even if it can be changed homosexuality can never be accepted because the Quranic Law has forbidden it.

Incidently he is perceived to be one of the foremost judicial reformers of Bangladesh, who outlawed the issuance of fatwas by Islamic Courts in a landmark High Court Judgement in 2000. This earned him a notorious infamity among the Islamists who promptly declared Justice Golam Rabbani as Nastic Murtad (Digusting Infidel) with subsequent life threatening  attacks on him.
