The requests arrived after Italy approved same-sex marriage law, which entered into force at the end of July. The photo posted by the leader of Italian Muslim communities represents new mayor of Milan celebrating the first marriage of an homosexual couple.

If this is about civil rights, then polygamy is a civil right,” he wrote on his post.
