If Being Gay Goes Against Islamic Law, Does Islamic Law Go Against Nature?

If “homosexuality is an offence under Shariat Law and haram [prohibited] in Islam,” as Vice Chancellor Maulana Abdul Khalik Madrasi, of the Darululoom-Deoband school in India, proclaims, then isn’t Shariat Law an offense to approximately 500 million persons around the globe? And, uh, Mother Nature? (In India, gay rights advocates are fighting to repeal Section 377, which criminalizes homosexuality. Madrai’s comments come amidst statements from public officials.)
