Hamza Ali Abbasi lashes out at legalization of gay marriage in US
Known for voicing his views on political affairs quite often, Hamza Ali Abbasi has come out openly against gay marriages being legalized in the United States.
And apparently, he also has a bone to pick with those in Pakistan who celebrated the legal status of same sex marriages in the United States.
Hamza Ali Abbasi, who has come under fire for posting controversial remarks as his status update on Facebook every now and then, has again courted controversy. The Pyarey Afzal actor, who usually targets Pakistan’s political leaders in his statuses, burst out at Pakistani ‘liberals’ for supporting legalization of same sex marriages in US. Irked by Muslims uploading rainbow colours as their display picture (as a symbol of gay pride celebration), Hamza Ali Abbasi expressed his disappointment in a series of posts.
“I am really sorry but i am disappointed at people in Pakistan celebrating a behaviour which is taboo even in animals,” said Abbasi in a post.
My heart sank when my 12 yr old nephew asked me what is gay? and why are people celebrating gay marriage being legal in US? I am really sorry but i am disappointed at people in Pakistan celebrating a behaviour which is taboo even in animals. I wont hate you if you are gay but i will certainly NOT CELEBRATE IT. Stop trying to justify homosexuality under the banner of “universal love”. And please, we have bigger issues in the world and in our own country than trying to make normal and natural what is abnormal and un-natural. Gay marriage does not mean “human equality”. Stop mutilating the concepts of human equality and justice. Tolerance means tolerating something…not celebrating it. Whats next? Legalising and celebrating incest?

The actor had earlier announced his decision to resign from Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf’s post of secretary culture. Abbasi had stated that he had not acted according to his beliefs (when he had starred in Jawani Phir Nahi Aani) and also said that the movie was against the cultural values of Pakistan.
Let’s hope Hamza does not get carried away due to the legalization of same sex marriages in the United States. I mean, aren’t there other issues that need our attention?
