Gays are not being treated nicely in today’s world. They are trolled for their nature and they struggle to get the same status in the society just like the other two genders i.e man and woman. It’s not about being a man or woman but it’s about being a human first.
In a shocking incident, an Iraqi teen ran through a terrible ordeal after his Muslim father slashed his throat for being gay.
The 17-year-old is identified as Seran M. In order to protect his identity, he was allegedly assaulted by his father at their residence in the central-western Swiss canton of Bern.
As per the teen, he woke up with his father standing over him holding an incisive knife against his throat.
As per the reports, the unidentified father had then shouted at him “you are gay, you are gay?” before slicing his throat with the sharp weapon.
Seran told local media reporters that he always hid his homosexuality from his family. “I have always hidden my homosexuality from my family.”
The teen said that he still cannot believe how his own father could have done such a wrong or extreme thing to him.
Seran also believes that he had survived by luck after managing to defend himself from his dad. He fought with his father with hands and feet before jumping over the balcony and the poor teenager was injured badly.
Seran was rushed to University Hospital of Bern as he picked up severe injuries in throat, chest, back and arms.
“Fortunately, my father missed the carotid artery, but the trachea was badly injured. I had to be put in an induced coma,” he told the reporters.
6 months after the brutal attack, the teen is living alone in Swiss canton of Bern. Seran commented: “I see the injuries in the mirror or when I take selfies and appear in snaps. They will accompany me for the rest of my life.”
He went on to add saying that: “My mum is ashamed of what happened. But I hid for long enough, this is the end of that now.”
Seran wants to motivate other LGBT people with an Islamic background to seek advice and act in support of themselves, adding: “Get help if you want to come out [as gay].
“We are living in 2019 and my dad wanted me dead because I am attracted to men. I just cannot accept that.”
After the alleged attack, the local police had arrested Seran’s father.
