The gay ten was killed by his own uncle after having been outed to the whole family. The 17-year-old was thrown from the balcony on the top of the 9-stored building to ‘wash the shame away’ from his family.The heart wrenching story of the teen’s murder comes after a survivor of the gay purge in Chechnya opened up to a Russian magazine about their experience of growing up in the extremist region. The religious leader reportedly told the man that he should leave Chechnya because of the “shame”. “As a Chechen and as a man I do not want to see you here. Neither in the mosque, nor in this district. I want you to leave now, because everything you said is the most disgusting thing you can find out. I hope your relatives have the dignity to wash away your shame. Go away,” the religious leader said. Chechnya is an autonom region of Russia the overwhelming majority of population in which lives under the radical Muslim laws. They oppose gay people and believe they deserve nothing but death. According to the reports, gay people are violently persecuted and held captive in conditions similar to those in Nazi concentration camps.
