The top Russian Islamic figure or 'Mufti' Tajuddin said action against a homosexual parade in Russia will bear physical threat: “The parade should not be allowed, and if they still come out into the streets, then they should be bashed."
He said: “All normal people are going to join it — Muslims and Orthodox alike."
“Muslims’ protests can be even worse than these notorious rallies abroad over the scandalous cartoons,” said Tajuddin.
“Sexual minorities have no rights, because they have crossed the line. Alternative sexuality is a crime against God," he added. Russian gay and lesbian activists announced in July that they want a permit to hold pride celebrations in Moscow next May.
