religion and state to come out of the closet say it still doesn’t mean that it would become easier to live in the society as a practising Muslim who is gay Last week a three-judge bench of the Supreme Court headed by Chief Justice of India Dipak Mishra decided to revisit the 2013 verdict upholding Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code that bans consensual sexual acts between members of the same sex and referred a petition against the controversial colonial law to a larger bench While the Supreme Court verdict rekindled hope among the LGBTQ community across the nation how much will this help people like Unais Unais who holds a post graduate degree in English literature says his family was nearly ostracized and death threats had become the normal “My gay identity has cost me a lot of friends who started distancing themselves after I came out Even those who support me are afraid to come out in public and lend support fearing backlash from the society” says Unais Unais remembers how the Khateeb one who gives sermons during Friday prayers started shaming his parents in public “Without taking our names he said that this is what happens when you send your children for higher studies” says Unais It all started after Unais attended the LGBTQ parade in Kochi last year He had uploaded a photo of himself on Facebook wearing a black lungi and a green shirt His inbox was flooded both with messages of support and hate Being gay and practising his religion has now proved to be a task for Unais who no longer attends prayers at the mosque something that has been an important part of his growing up Every time he would visit the mosque the crowd there would stare at him or ask questions Unais however is of the opinion that Islam has always been a good place for queer people “I strongly believe Islam is very accepting but many Muslims are not It is the existing social norms and the society that against us There are many including some Muslim scholars who lend support to the LGBT cause but in private They hardly come out in public fearing a backlash” says Unais Unais remembers as a child his on only prayer at the dargahs would be to get his sexual orientation changed However three years ago Unais finally mustered the courage to come out The 25-year-old feels that the Quran supports the rights of the LGBTQ community “It is the wrong interpretation of Quran that proves the basis for many who argue that Islam doesn’t support gay rights” he says Many years ago when a movie named ‘Chanthupottu’ was released with actor Dileep playing an effeminate man Unais became the subject of mockery for his classmates In a recent Facebook post Unais shared the experience and leading Malayalam actress Parvathy Menon came out in support of Unais and apologised for “what her industry had done in cementing a common mindset against sexual minorities” While Unais’ parents have always supported him they have often feared how the society will treat him “Once my mother asked me why Chekannur Maulavi a progressive Islamic cleric was killed and why the hands of Joseph Master were chopped” he says Chekannur Maulavi was known for his controversial and unconventional interpretation of Islam based on Quran In 1993 he disappeared under mysterious circumstances and is now widely believed to be dead In 2010 people belonging to an extremist fundamental group chopped of Professor TJ Joseph’s hands as punishment for “blasphemy” “Ever since I have announced my identity on Facebook threat calls have become normal and mostly from Muslims with extremist ideas They say I am maligning their religion” One of them even went on to say that he’ll kill him by that evening Thus Unais still believes that scrapping of Section 377 would not make much of a

victims of the terrorist attack in Barcelona Spain Saturday Aug 19 2017 (AP Photo/Santi Palacios/File) Related News A cell of at least nine extremists meticulously plotted to combine vehicles and explosives in a direct hit on tourists and managed to carry off most of their deadly plan killing 14 people authorities said Friday Police in Spain and France pressed a manhunt for any remaining members of the group which Islamic State claimed as its own Only flawed bomb construction avoided a more devastating attack authorities said after taking a closer look at a blast Wednesday evening in the town of Alcanar that was first written off as a household gas explosion At least one person was killed and several injured in the home where police said the deadly plan took shape Eighteen hours later a rented van veered into Barcelona’s crowded Las Ramblas promenade swerving along the walkway Thursday and killing 13 people A surveillance video from inside a museum which captured images of the van showed it speeding down the promenade barely missing a person with a stroller while others scattered Armed with an ax knives and false explosives belts attackers then drove a second vehicle to the boardwalk in the resort town of Cambrils early Friday fatally injuring one person Five of those attackers were shot to death among them 17-year-old Moussa Oukabir according to a Spanish police union official confirming Spanish news reports Oukabir’s name was first on a document listing four suspects sought in the attacks said the official who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the investigation The Barcelona-based La Vanguardia newspaper Spanish national broadcaster RTVE and other outlets cited police sources as saying he was the driver of the van in Barcelona The arrest order was issued throughout Spain and into France according to the Spanish official and a French police official who also spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the document They did not say what became of the other three men listed who ranged in age from 18 to 24 All had roots in Morocco; only Moussa Oukabir was born in Spain according to the document Earlier in the day Catalan regional president Carles Puigdemont said at least one “terrorist is still on out there We do not have information regarding the capacity to do more harm” The French official said Spain had flagged a rented van that was believed to have crossed the border to the north Moussa’s brother Driss Oukabir was arrested Thursday after he went to police to report his stolen identity documents were those found in the van abandoned on the historic Las Ramblas promenade Spanish media reported The brothers were born and raised in Ripoll a quiet upscale town of 10000 tucked into hilly Catalan heartland and dominated by the imposing tower of the Monesteri de Santa Maria The dented door to the family’s first-floor apartment swung open Friday; the home was empty Neighbors said they were shocked by the news of Moussa Oukabir’s involvement One teenager who identified himself only by his first name Pau said they played together when they were younger and he was “a good boy” Authorities said the two attacks were related and the work of a large terrorist cell that had been plotting for a long time from the house in Alcanar 200 kilometers (124 miles) down the coast from Barcelona The house was destroyed by a butane gas explosion Wednesday night that killed one person One of those injured in the blast was taken into custody Senior police official Josep Lluis Trapero said police believed the apparently accidental explosion prevented the suspects from carrying out a far deadlier attack Police said they arrested two people Friday after the two arrests a day earlier In custody are three Moroccans and one Spaniard none with terrorism-related records “We are not talking about a group of one or two people but rather a numerous group” regional Interior Ministry chief Joaquim Forn told Onda Cero radio The sheer size of the cell recalled the November 2015 attacks in Paris in which trained Islamic State attackers struck the national stadium a concert hall and bars and restaurants nearly simultaneously Since then the extremist group has steadily lost ground in its self-declared caliphate in Iraq and Syria most recently with its defeat in Mosul “This shows there is no correlation between what is happening over there with Daesh and the operational capacity of the group” said Jean-Charles Brisard a French security analyst using another name for the group Spanish authorities had not yet drawn any direct links between IS extremists and the suspects in the Spanish attacks but the possibility that members of the Spanish group could still be at large was chilling Those who have survived prior attacks nearly always ended their lives with new bloodshed and a hail of police bullets “There is the danger they will not let themselves get caught and will do something dramatic” said Alain Chouet a former French intelligence official Amid heavy security Barcelona tried to move forward Friday with the Las Ramblas promenade quietly reopening to the public and King Felipe VI and Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy joining thousands in a minute of silence in the city’s main square “I am not afraid I am not afraid” the crowd chanted in Catalan and Spanish But the attacks unnerved a country that hasn’t seen an Islamic extremist attack since 2004 when al-Qaida-inspired bombers killed 191 people in coordinated assaults on Madrid’s commuter trains Unlike France Britain Sweden and Germany Spain has largely been spared thanks in part to a crackdown that has netted about 200 suspected jihadis in recent years Authorities were still dealing with the Barcelona van attack when police in Cambrils 130 kilometers (80 miles) to the south fatally shot the five attackers who had plowed into tourists and locals with their car near the town’s boardwalk Forn said the five were wearing fake bomb belts One woman in Cambrils died from her injuries and five others were wounded Catalan police said Cambrils Mayor Cami Mendoza said the town had taken precautions after the Barcelona bloodshed but the suspects focused their attack on the narrow path to the boardwalk which is usually packed “We were on a terrace” said bystander Jose Antonio Saez “We heard the crash and intense gunshots then (saw) the dead bodies on the floor shot by the police” Others described scenes of panic and found safety inside bars and restaurants until police secured the area “It was clearly a terror attack intended to kill as many people as possible” Trapero said The Islamic State group said on its Aamaq news agency that the Barcelona attack was carried out by “soldiers of the Islamic State” in response to its calls for followers to target countries participating in the coalition fighting the extremist group in Syria and Iraq Islamic extremists have targeted Europe’s major tourist attractions in recent years Rented or hijacked vehicles have formed the backbone of a strategy to attack the West and its cultural symbols Barcelona’s Las Ramblas is one of the most popular attractions in a city that swarms with foreign tourists in August The dead and wounded in the two attacks came from 34 countries Rajoy called the killings a “savage terrorist attack” and said Spaniards “are not just united in mourning but especially in the firm determination to beat those who want to rob us of our values and our way of life” President Donald Trump personally offered his condolences to Rajoy and pledged to support Spanish authorities in their investigation and in bringing the perpetrators to justice the White House said Friday Makeshift memorials grew along Las Ramblas after it reopened to the public “It’s sad” New York tourist John Lanza said as the family stood outside the gated La Boqueria market “You can tell it’s obviously quieter than it usually is but
