British Muslim Group Attacks Gay Marriage Plans

19.03.2012

British PM David Cameron has presented a proposal to redefine marrigae and legalise gay marriage. Acording to Cameron, this redefinition is necessary, as any kind of relationships based on stability and commitment should be supported. Yet, Cameron’s proposal was attacked my Muslims and Sikhs in the UK. The Muslim Council of Britain, for instance, said that Cameron’s plans were „unnecessary and unhelpful“ (The Telegraph) and, furthermore, the proposal was „strikingly weak“. In their opinion, the recognition of civil partnerships was sufficient, as it gives homosexual and heterosexual couples equal rights.
