CIJnews has learned that some Islamic private schools in Canada use textbooks produced by the Saudi Ministry of Education. Textbooks obtained by CIJnews contain chapters dealing with the wisdom of the capital punishments in Islam in cases of major sins. In two textbooks for the school year 2014 and 2015-16, homosexuality is depicted as a “major sin” and as “one of the most heinous sins” punishable by death for both partners to the sexual act. The punishment is similar to that inflicted on the people of Lut, meaning by stoning and/or by fire.
The punishment for homosexuals is part of a much greater evil:
The textbook also teaches that adultery is punishable in case a married man / woman are involved by stoning to death, and theft in certain conditions and terrorizing people by chopping off limbs.
