“Homosexuality is unlawful in Islam. It is neither excepted by the state nor by the Islamic Society.

“The amended law would drop the death penalty for people found to have had sex outside of marriage, though they still would be subject to a five-year prison term or $165 fine.

Earlier in the week police detained three hard-line lawmakers in an attempt to block a protest in eastern Pakistan about the changes.
A six-party coalition of Islamic groups, the Mutahida Majlis-e-Amal (MMA) or United Action Forum, planned the rally after claiming the new legislation would violate Islamic law.
The protest, announced Wednesday by MMA president Qazi Hussain Ahmed, called for a march from the eastern city of Lahore to the nearby town of Gujrat. But late Wednesday night, the provincial government issued a statement banning rallies.
On Thursday, police detained three lawmakers from the coalition – Liaquat Baluch, Hafiz Hussain Ahmed and Farid Piracha – along with several supporters as they gathered for the rally, witnesses said. Police also swung batons to disperse about 100 people who had also gathered at the rally point.
Although Qazi Hussain Ahmed managed to leave the city of Lahore, he was stopped by police in the nearby industrial city of Gujranwala – miles away from Gujrat- and later sent to Islamabad by road.
In Gujranwala, Ahmed told his supporters that he would continue opposing changes in the rape law, and urged them to hold rallies today outside mosques to condemn the government for banning demonstrations.”
