    Malawi move to ban polygamy angers Muslims

    Malawi move to ban polygamy angers Muslims


    Patricia Kaliati says men are unable to love more than one wife equally

    Muslims in Malawi have been angered by government plans to ban polygamy.

    A spokesman for the Muslim Association of Malawi told the BBC the proposed law would discriminate against the country's Muslim minority.

    He said with about 6% more women than men in Malawi, if polygamy were banned, many women would be left without a husband and become prostitutes.

    The gender minister said the ban was necessary to prevent women from being abused in polygamous relationships.

    She said problems occurred because men could not give their full attention to more than one woman.

    I have only one wife, my dear wife... but the moment they proceed with this, I will take a second wife

    "When a man has two, three, four wives, they are not co-operative - one will be the loved one," said Gender Minister Patricia Kaliati.

    It had not been a hasty decision and there had been wide consultation about the matter, she said.

    But Imran Shareef Muhammed - secretary general of the Muslim Association of Malawi - disputed this.

    "The minister is lying - she didn't consult the Muslim community," he told the BBC's Network Africa programme.

    "We are totally rejecting it. There are also other ethnic groups [who practise polygamy] and they also totally reject this," he said.

    "If these people go ahead banning polygamous marriages it means many women will go into prostitution.

    "Every woman has the right to be under the shelter of a man."

    He said under Sharia law, polygamy was optional.

    "I have only one wife, my dear wife... but the moment they proceed with this, I will take a second wife," he said.

    Should the ban come into affect, those already in polygamous marriages would not be affected, but those who flout it could face imprisonment, the minister said.

    They would probably be treated better as prostitutes.

    Polygamy has been illegal in Thailand since the 1930s.
    Does'nt seem to make any difference.
    Laosy is still looking for a suitable second for me.

    And stoning is OK, honor killings are OK, and murdering your daughter is she's raped it OK, and sentencing people to prison or a whipping is OK if they have a beer.

    Must be tough being a "Muslim Minority."

    Quite tough, I'd wager. Is it possible that if we non-Muslims wiped the smiles from our faces that they'd start to like us?
    By the way, Barbaro, in deference to your avatar, kindly permit me to share this old 'ditty' which is more amusing when spoken to a listener who understands English.

    "Won-One" was one race-horse,
    "Won-Two" was one, too.
    "Won-One" won one race,
    "Won-Two" won one, too.

    Malawi move to ban Muslims would be a better headline. I prefer women who are contented than those who are enslaved.

    No. Every generalisation that you conceive of about them in that narrow little mind of yours, every racist and bigoted label that you apply in an attempt to dehumanise them and make them fit your own preconceived and biased views, it's all true.
