An Indo-Canadian Sikh who was to fight Canadian Parliament election on October 19 has been dumped by his party for his views on homosexuality. Jagadish Grewal feels homosexuality is unnatural and gays can be cured into straight people.

Grewal was the candidate of the ruling Conservative Party from the Toronto suburban constituency of Mississauga-Malton.

Canada legalised homosexuality in 2004 and the Toronto Pride (Gay) Parade is one of the biggest such events in the world.

Grewal, who also runs a paper called Punjabi Post, was dumped by his party for writing an editorial in his paper in which he called homosexual “unnatural people” and heterosexuals “normal”.

In his editorial, titled ‘Is it wrong for a homosexual to become a normal person?’, Grewal wrote that people become gay due to some “shock” in their childhood but it can be “corrected”.

Dumping him, the Conservative Party said: “Mr. Grewal is no longer an official candidate for the Conservative Party.”

“These (Grewal’s) comments do not reflect the views of the Conservative Party of Canada. We believe that all Canadians — regardless of race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation — deserve to be treated with respect and dignity.”
