ISLAMABAD: A leading Pakistani right-wing party on Monday condemned a
recent function held in support of gay rights at Islamabad's US embassy
and described it as "cultural terrorism" . Deputy ambassador Richard
Hoagland had hosted the event on June 26, but a statement on it was
posted on the embassy website on Sunday. The statement said the event
was its first gay and lesbian pride celebration . Over 75 people
including Pakistani gay community leaders attended the meeting.
"Such people are a curse for the society and social garbage,'' said
Jamaat-e-Islami in a statement . It described the event as the second
most dangerous US attack after drone and missile strikes. "The
participants don't deserve to be Muslims or Pakistani and the support
and protection announced by the US administration for them is the worst
social and cultural terrorism against Pakistan.''
