Saudi Arabia’s top religious body has declared homosexuality to be ‘one of the most heinous crimes’. According to a statement by the official Saudi Press Agency, Grand Mufti Abdulaziz al-Sheikh said that homosexuals are a ‘disgrace and shameful in this world and the hereafter’. He also added, “Human rights… are first and foremost within God’s law and not in the perverted desires that sow corruption on Earth.” His comments followed a statement by Saudi Arabia’s UN Ambassador Abdallah al-Mouallimi who expressed reservations about the usage of the terms ‘sexual orientation and gender identity’ in a UN General Assembly draft on democracy.
