A recent Fatwa from an eminent Sheikh allows that a husband can eat wife when extremely hungry!
This is not the first time that he is introducing such fatwas. The Sheikh of the country, Abdul Aziz Bin Abdullah had earlier indulged into a controversy when he asked all churches to be destroyed under the Islamic Law. He had even declared twitter as sources of all evil. Earlier he had issued Fatwa against the maestro A.R Rahman for composing music for an Iranian film Muhammad.
The Grand Mufti justifies his new Fatwa as a sacrifice of women for their husbands and a proof of obedience towards them. He also said that this would fulfil the desires of the Arabian women to be united as One with their husbands.
The Fatwa, however, has been denied by the Sheikh saying “attempt by enemies to distract society from their main cause at the moment, which is standing together behind our wise leadership against attempts to distort the ummah” as per Saudi Press Agency. He even said that these kinds of thoughts cannot come from a Muslim! It’s surely some conspiracy against the religion.
The alleged fatwa that men of Saudi Arabia can chop up and eat his wife in extreme hunger has raised controversy among the social media sites as well as among communities while the Sheikh claims that the report is not only false but being created by enemies of the Islam community.
Now it’s time to see the authenticity of the Fatwa and how it leads the country forward despite reactions from the people!
