It has now been confirmed that over 1000 emails of support for iERA were sent by the Muslim community to Hotel Ibis this past week. The emails were triggered by Pink News' unsubstantiated allegations, which called for Hotel Ibis to block iERA on the basis of alleged homophobia.
iERA has already issued a statement clarifying its position on the matter, that it stands against hatred and violence and invites the gay community to discourse on matters of spirituality. Hotel Ibis has remained objective throughout.
Congratulations to the Muslim community for responding so well and to Hotel Ibis for giving the Muslim community the same rights that a gay couple were given last week in court.
