Mamoun Mobayed on homosexuality July 11, 2006

Posted by Rasheed Eldin in Islam, Media.

Al-Fil has posted his thoughts on comments made by Dr. Mamoun Mobayed to a Qatari newspaper, Al-Raya (in Arabic). You can see his translation (which I haven’t checked), here:

UK Doctor Spreads Gay Misinformation in Qatar

A few quotes:

In the beginning, he said that the homosexual phenomenon exists in societies without exception, and may spread in specific certain societies, and that homosexuality exists in Arab communities, but not with the same frequency as in Western societies, despite his acknowledgment of the absence of statistics in the Arab countries due to the lack of studies on this phenomenon. He said communities still feel embarrassed to talk about such problems.

And he confirmed that a young man is a victim when he suffers from this problem and we should not issue moral judgement on him because the family and society are responsible for this behavior.

The issue must be developed in workshops or special courses for parents, and mode of discourse must vary according to age group and the target audience.
