'Men Allowed To Eat Wives In Saudi Arabia If Extremely Hungry' Says Legal Expert
It’s okay to eat your wife in Saudi Arabia, but only if you’re extremely hungry.
A Mufti – a Muslim legal expert who is empowered to give rulings on religious matters – has allegedly given the green light for cannibalism.
Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah came under fire for this outrageous move, a number of Arabian websites are reporting.
A Tayyar report roughly translates as: ‘Mufti of Saudi Arabia issued a new fatwa which allows a man to eat his wife in the event he is afflicted with a severe hunger.
‘The Mufti of Saudi Arabia said it is evidence of the sacrifice of women and obedience to her husband.’
But religious authorities denied he made such claims.
Khalid ben Abdel-Rahman El-Shaye, assistant secretary general of the Global Commission for Introducing the Messenger, affiliating to the Muslim World League, told CNN Arabic: ‘The truth is that this is fabricated and made up from its basis.
‘These ill thoughts cannot come from any Muslim, regardless of a great scholar who Muslims refer to from around the world.’
