Reader comment on item: Harems Accepted in the West

Submitted by Truth (United Kingdom), Jul 10, 2008 at 12:15

The concept that Polygamy is bad and adultery and fornication are acceptable is a big problem in west. Where as polygamy liberates women by giving them a status of wife with rights in life and inheritance of the husband. On the other hand the western culture turns women into concubines where they have no right in the life or property of the man. One should ask, who is suppressing women? Islam or the so called liberators of women.
