    Pakistani lesbian couple defy death threats, become first to get married in UK:tsk::tsk::tsk:



    LONDON: Two former students from Pakistan — Rehana Kausar, 34, and Sobia Kamar, 29, took their vows at a registry office in Leeds earlier this month.

    They have now applied for political asylum since homosexual relations are illegal in Pakistan.


    Relatives of the couple said to the Independent that the women, who studied in Birmingham, had received death threats both in the UK and from opponents in their native Pakistan.


    During the ceremony the couple reportedly told the registrar that they had met three years ago while studying business and health care management at Birmingham, having travelled to the country on student visas, and had been living together in South Yorkshire for about a year.

    Ms Kausar, originally from Lahore, also holds a master's degree in economics from Punjab University.

    "This country allows us rights and it's a very personal decision that we have taken. It's no one's business as to what we do with our personal lives," she originally told the Birmingham-based Sunday Mercury newspaper.

    "The problem with Pakistan is that everyone believes he is in charge of other people lives and can best decide about the morals of others but that's not the right approach. We are in this state because of our clergy, who have hijacked our society, which was once tolerant and respected individuals' freedoms."

    Homosexual sex is illegal under Pakistani law, said the Independent. There are also no laws prohibiting discrimination or harassment on the basis of sexual orientation.

    In recent years in Britain, some Muslim gay and lesbian couples have opted for a nikah, an Islamic matrimonial contract, which is officially the reserve of heterosexuals.

    These services, conducted in Arabic with additional duas - prayers - are not recognized in the UK unless accompanied by a civil ceremony. Homosexuality is strictly forbidden in the Islamic faith and the notion of same-sex marriage is abhorrent to many Muslims, Independent said.

    A relative of one of the women told the Sunday Mercury: "The couple did not have an Islamic marriage ceremony, known as a nikah, as they could not find an imam to conduct what would have been a controversial ceremony. They have been very brave throughout as our religion does not condone homosexuality. The couple have had their lives threatened both here and in Pakistan and there is no way they could ever return there."

    Ruth Hunt, deputy chief executive for Stonewall, said: "There is a very cautious step towards social visibility for some gay men in Pakistan but lesbians are completely invisible. Pakistan is not necessarily a safe place for couples to be open about their love."

    Two Pakistan women, recently married as a Muslim lesbian couple, have sought asylum in the UK claiming their lives would be in danger if they return to their native country, reported Sunday Mercury on Sunday.According to the report, Rehana Kausar, 34, and Sobia Kamar, 29, tied the knot at a registry office in Leeds earlier this month and immediately applied for political asylum.

    The couple was reported to have received death threats both in the UK and from opponents in Pakistan.“The couple did not have an Islamic marriage ceremony, known as a nikah, as they could not find an imam to conduct what would have been a controversial ceremony,” a relative of the women was quoted as saying.

    “They have been very brave throughout as our religion does not condone homosexuality. The couple have had their lives threatened both here and in Pakistan and there is no way they could ever return there,” the relative added.Kausar, originally from Lahore, holds a master’s degree in economics from Punjab University and later studied in Birmingham where she met Kamar.“ This country allows us rights and it’s a very personal decision that we have taken.

    Lesbians and homosexuals are there, whether we like it or not.

    Religion forbid such liaison since it stops procreation.

    In those days, procreation was essential fr a variety of reason, including waging wars.

    Now the fashion is being a DINK (Double Income, No Kids) in the West.

    So, what could be better than promoting deviate sex where the risk of bludgeoning population nibbling away at the dwindling resources of the world is totally eliminated? :rofl:
