Imam of Dublin Islamic centre says approval will open door to new definitions of marriage

SHAFAQNA – According to Irish Times reported that ”  Advice circulated to the Muslim community in Ireland has warned that a Yes vote in the marriage equality referendum on May 22nd would have serious consequences. It “will redefine marriage and parenthood. It will open the door to new definitions of marriage, which could extend further. These are consequences on children and future generations,” said Shaykh Umar Al-Qadri, the imam of Al-Mustafa Islamic Centre in Blanchardstown, Dublin.Responding to Muslims’ queries about the referendum, he said: “Supporters of the same-sex marriage amendment say the referendum is about ‘equality’ for gay people and acceptance in mainstream society. It is, however, not as simple as that.”
