A leading Islamic seminary has opposed Centre’s move to repeal a controversial Section of the Indian Penal Code, which criminalises homosexuality saying unnatural sex is against the tenets of Islam.

“Homosexuality is offence under Shariat Law and haram (prohibited) in Islam,” Deputy Vice Chancellor of the Darul Uloom Deoband Maulana Abdul Khalik Madrasi said.Madrasi also asked the government not to repeal Section 377 of IPC.

His objection came a day after Union Law Minister Veerappa Moily said a decision on repealing the section would be taken only after considering concerns of all sections of the society, including religious groups like the church.
