Iranian cleric: COVID-19 vaccine turns people gay

An Iranian cleric has claimed that the COVID-19 vaccine turns people gay. Ayatollah Abbas Tabrizian made the claims on messaging platform Telegram, where he has almost 210,000 followers, according to The Daily Mail. Tabrizian wrote on the platform: “Don’t go near those who have had the COVID vaccine.

They have become homosexuals.” Prominent LGBTQ campaigner Peter Tatchell said the claims were ‘demonising’ both the vaccine and the gay community. In his words: “Ayatollah Tabrizian, combines scientific ignorance with a crude appeal to homophobia.” Me a n w h i l e Iranian dissident Sheina Vojoudi also criticized the cleric. She said: “Like other clerics in the regime, also Tabrizian relates all the shortcomings to sexuality. “The clerics in Iran are suffering from lack of knowledge and humanity.

Actually, his goal of spreading nonsense is to try to scare people (out) of getting vaccinated, while the leader of the regime and other officials got Pfizer, and they don’t provide it for the people with the excuse that they don’t trust the West.”

The controversial cleric has made several claims about Western medicine. In January last year, the video was shared of him burning an American scientific textbook, claiming that Islamic medicine made such books ‘irrelevant’. Homosexuality is punishable by execution in Iran. It is reported that thousands of gays have been executed in the country since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
