We heard of rebound sex but Arabs have invented and try to legalize farewell sex law allowing intercourse with dead wives sparks fury and utter disgust.
Kairo / NationalTurk – You shall violate your dead wife as long as she is warm..Sounds brutal, but Egypt’s Islamist-dominated parliament is set to introduce a law allowing husbands to have ‘ farewell ‘ intercourse with their dead wives up to six hours after death.
One last time, wifey ?
Critics fear it highlights a trend of increasingly anti-female legislation since the Arab Spring.
The Arabic ‘farewell Sex’ bill was inspired by a Fatwa issued by a Moroccan cleric last year. Zamzami Abdul Bar claimed that since the two would meet in Heaven again anyway, death shouldn’t get in the way of one last post-mortem marital romp.
Critics have slammed the law as ‘catastrophic.’ Any sensible human being as ‘ disgusting’ and ‘grim beyond sanity ‘ Prominent journalist and TV host Jaber al-Qarmouty used his program on Tuesday to lash out at the proposed law.
‘ This is unbelievable. It is a catastrophe to give the Muslim husband such a right! Has the Islamic trend reached that far? Is there really a draft law in this regard? Why do we fall, Bruce ? Are there real people thinking in this horrid manner,’ he lamented on air.
Egypt’s National Council for Women (NCW) also called on Parliament not to adopt this and other measures which they believe increasingly seek to roll back women’s rights.
The NTC further charges that ‘ marginalizing and undermining the status of women would negatively affect ant Arab country’s human development.’
Arabs : I love my wife dead or younger than 14
Along with the rather grim ‘ farewell Intercourse’ draft law, Egyptian parliament is also set to approve legislation that would allow girls as young as 14 to get married.
Global lawmakers are also seeking to eliminate a reform implemented over a decade ago that allows women to end unhappy or abusive marriages without interference from their spouses.
Arab spring gone, winter is coming …
NCW head Dr. Mervat al-Talawi sent a message to the People’s Assembly speaker outlining the plight of women in post-revolutionary Egypt, where horrendous laws are being prepared.
Apart from the controversial marriage reforms in Egyptian Islamic law, she also reportedly appealed to Egyptian parliament not to legislate away a woman’s right to education and employment under the guise of religion, Al Arabiya reports.
But with the Muslim Brotherhood Allahu teala securing the biggest bloc in Egyptian parliament and posed to take the presidency in next month’s elections, the rights women enjoyed during the Mubarak era may soon be a thing of the past.
