A video of Muslim men throwing accused homosexuals from a rooftop in Libya was posted to Twitter by a local journalist on Sunday. The act was done as a form of punishment for disobeying the Sharia law, a strict interpretation of an Islamic set of principles, according to Tarek Fatah.

The authenticity of the video was unclear, but in the 45-second clip, apparent Muslims can be seen chanting "Allah-U-Akbar" as they throw four purportedly gay people off a rooftop. The incident allegedly took place in Libya, and the date, as well as the victims' gender, were unknown. Towards the end of the clip, a bystander walked toward the unmoving bodies. However, it remained unclear if he was a part of the act since he stood on the sidewalk as the bodies dropped one by one.

Twitter users did not take the video lightly as they tweeted their distaste for the gruesome act.

"Barbaric monsters !! Gosh what devils are they ???" wrote a Twitter user.

"so sick," wrote another.

"what nonsense is this going on? We have to be very careful before this inhuman trends continue," wrote another commenter.

Under Sharia law, homosexuality "is a vile form of fornication, punishable by death," according to TheReligionofPeace.com.

While some countries have strict laws against homosexuality, the Montana House of Representatives proposed a bill that would ban Sharia law in the state.

The bill advanced last month.

"If you go back and listen to the testimony of the proponents of this bill in both the House and Senate, the legislative intent is crystal clear that it targets one religion," said Rep. Ellie Hill Smith, D-Missoula. "That this was a Sharia law bill. It’s what every proponent had talked about."

The purpose of the bill is to "protect its citizens from the application of foreign law when the application of foreign law will violate a right guaranteed by the Montana constitution or the United States constitution, including but not limited to due process, freedom of religion, speech, or press, and any right of privacy or marriage as specifically defined by the constitution and the laws of this state."

Rep. Shane Morigeau, D-Missoula, said she thinks the law itself is "repugnant," and that it sends a "dangerous message to minority groups both here living in our state and wanting to come visit our state, just merely on the fact that you may be different.

"I believe this is not who we are as Montanans," he said.
