Australian Muslim leader wants Polygamy to be legalised, in the spirit of multiculturalism sure why not?

So again another request by Muslims for a western country to bend their culture to accommodate cultural practices from the dark ages. How would it even work, it wouldn't be equality unless everyone else could avail of it. Another imam chips in and says the guy is trying to misuse his religion.... lol .

A point not raised in the article but should polygamous muslim families be even allowed in to western countries? do we want the kids of these relationships growing up thinking this is a thing?


Muslim leader wants to marry second wife under Shariah law and she is fine with it | Daily Mail Online


Muslim leader in Australia wants to be allowed to have a second wife under Shariah law - and his current spouse says she is OK with it
Keysar Trad wants a second wife and thinks polygamy should be legal
Muslim group leader's wife Hanifeh says she wouldn't stop him remarrying
Under Shariah law, men can have 4 spouses but women can only have one
Mr Trad has wanted a second wife for 18 years but has not remarried

...

Remarkably, his wife, Hanifeh, insisted she would not mind if her husband married another woman, saying she has no right to stand in his way.

Hopefully the Aussies will tell him to stick where the sun don't shine.

One bloke with loads of money taking loads of women for himself (and leaving loads of other fellas single and childless for life) is fundamentally inequitable. Bad for equality, human rights, and society as a whole.

Because of the gender imbalance in immigration, there aren't enough women to go around. Perhaps Polyandry ( one woman married to 2 or more men) would make more sense.


A monster like Idi Amin can have 43 kids and you think that is ok ? And how much quality-time did each wife ever get ? The whole concept of polygamy is barbaric and a throwback to murderous alpha males in a David Attenbourgh documentary. The males fight, the winner takes all.

How would the no borders brigade in Ireland square the above request? Would love to see the question posed to Politicians in Ireland. I would expect the "we need to be sensitive and accommodating to others cultural beliefs and human rights" response.

Tell him fine, but only if he can fully support said wives & any children himself. Polygamy should invoke automatic barring of those partaking of it and their dependents, from any state assistance for life.

That wouldn't be long softening his cough.

Will never happen though, so it will be easier to just tell him to go fck himself if you will excuse the pun.

What? None of the usual defenders of Islam in yet telling us not to be waycist and to embrace the diversity?

Same sex marriage, why not polygamy.


There is no difference. If you support one on principle ("equality") then, barring hypocrisy, you must support this.

What is funny in that report is that it is declared "remarkable" that the wife wouldn't object to hubby taking another wife.

Why is it "remarkable"? It is part of Islamic ideology to which she clearly adheres. Yet another example of the idiocy of the media.

This will happen there and here and everywhere.


As will incestuous marriage and marriage to inanimate objects.


This is where "marriage equality" leads, as much as the Libtards wanted to deny it during the referendum. The writing is on the wall for marriage as an institution.

I wonder will he extend the same rights to SSM marriage, highly unlikely, but the PC lefties won't hold it against him. They limit homophobia to the white people. They'd probably let him have multiple wife's, another thing they turn a blind eye to in Islam, is it's hatred of women, which is what polygamy is all about.

Civil Marriage is a joke anyway.

Polygamy is facilitated anyhow, so long as it's Serial Polygamy (you're not allowed wife No2 till after you've given wife No1 her walking-papers) and Gay Marriage has made the whole thing meaningless anyway.

From the link....

"Imam Mohammad Tawhidi, a sheikh from Adelaide, told Today Tonight that the interpretation that said men can marry up to four women was outdated.
He said it was meant for times of war, when scores of men were killed and the remaining women needed to be protected.
Imam Tawhidi accused Muslims in Australia that try to remarry of 'misusing the religion' for their own pleasure.
'This is all about pleasure, lust or even revenge,' he said.
'We have Muslims in this modern day and age where they believe because they have enough money and can afford it that they go around looking for second wives, for pleasure. This is misusing the religion."

So from within the ranks of Islam itself we can find figures to slam this patriarchal indulgence

Polygamy between males and females makes a lot more sense than two men getting married. Two bulls won't make a calf, but a bull and two heifers will go forth and multiply.

Thanks for that insight.
A sixty year old widower who marries a fifty-five year old woman also cannot 'go forth and multiply'.

Women don't belong to men. They don't have a duty to act in order to maintain the supply of women for men. From a social perspective, it can help maintain social peace though.

In theory, allowing multiple wives could benefit women, since it reduces supply. That means that all women get, on average, a better deal. Women would only share a husband if the husband was worth enough to make up for having to share. The rest of the women get a better husband since there are more unmarried women than unmarried men.

In practice, this depends on women actually owning themselves (including the right to decide who they marry). If you combine it with a society where women effectively belong to someone else, then that other person gets the benefit.

The problem with the practice is more the fact that it is linked with societies which don't give women equal freedom, not the practice itself.

Perhaps Polyandry ( one woman married to 2 or more men) would make more sense.
(uh, little hypocrisy there?)

Why not combine the two? Marriages can have any number of people in them (at least 2 presumably) without regard for gender. That is at least gender neutral and also covers SSM.

Alternatively, you could eliminate the bigamy rules. In that case, a man could be married to two women, but the women wouldn't be married to each other (or a women married to two men). If 3 people wanted a group marriage, they could marry twice each.

Either case is a much bigger hassle than SSM was, since many laws assume that marriages contain two people.

It also means that the two shortages could somewhat balance out. That would depend on preferences. If women are more OK with sharing a husband than men are OK with sharing a wife, it still would balance in women's favour (or vice versa if the condition is reversed).

If the state will let people marry their dogs, and their first cousins, and the widowed or divorced spouses of their parents then why shouldn't polygamy and polyandry similarly be allowed?

Religious groups should opt-out of Civil Marriage altogether - have nothing to do with it, and then stick to their own rules regarding religious marriages.
