Common Sense And Wonder posted an article that is just one in a long line of assaults that the religion of Islam encourages against women. Someday women might wake up. Maybe. Even though the case is made that Muslim women have rights and that Islam gives parity to the sexes, the history is not there. No one looks at the history, they just take the words of ideologues and argue from there. but here is just one more example to tuck in your file for taking stock of really goes on when this religion has dominance in a culture- and we are not even discussing human rights violations against other religious groups.
Last week, the Senate (Malaysia’s Upper House) approved controversial amendments to the Islamic Family Law (Federal Territories) Bill 2005.
Under the new Section 107A of the law, a husband is allowed to obtain an injunction preventing the disposition of property by a wife or a former wife.
The amendment also endorses man’s right to polygamy without having to prove he is financially capable of treating his wives on equal footing before taking on another.
Upon taking a new wife, men can now seize property belonging to existing wives, and they are also given new rights to claim assets after a divorce, as well as less obligation to pay compensation and maintenance.
evil evil iniquitous evil. that is all I can say to this.
