Social media users have circulated a document claiming it shows the decision of appointment of the Kuwaiti preacher Mohammed Al Awadi as an advisor on LGBT issues by the International the Union of Muslim Scholars.

The spread of the main document was in the context of the former Egyptian football star Mohamed Aboutrika's stand against homosexuality during a TV program. He criticized the English Premier League's support for what he called the phenomenon of homosexuality.
The responsible for the fabrication of the document may have chosen to use the name of the preacher Mohammed Al Awadi based on the controversy over his statement and opinions about homosexuality last year.
