Call for HIV test to educate and protect the health of muslims? That’s a fatwa.
Aids activists in South Africa have dismissed as unconstitutional a call for all Muslim couples to have a compulsory HIV test before marriage.
“It undermines public health and it will further stigmatise and discriminate against people,” Aids activist Fatima Ahmed told the BBC.
The proposal was made by opposition MP Maulana Rafeek Shah.
He told the BBC the objective was not to discriminate but to educate the Muslim community about the Aids threat.
“The objective is to remove the stigma and the mystery that is associated with HIV and Aids,” the Democratic Alliance MP told the BBC’s Network Africa programme.
“South Africa has the world’s highest HIV/Aids prevalence rate infection, in fact I would not be exaggerating if I said HIV poses a far more serious threat to security of South Africa and South African society as a whole than any other conventional threat.”
“The Muslim community is… not immune.”
