Marat's voting has nothing to do with being muslim or russian muslim comminity. Not a single person dared to vote against this law and certainly Marat wouldn't have chosen LGBT issue to go against the system. And btw even though homophobia has become a new national idea in Russia, muslims actually seem to be less vocal than others.
