Dear Muslim men, better not try to get a third wife

Reader comment on item: Strange Sex Stories from the Muslim World

Submitted by Prashant (United States), Jun 26, 2021 at 01:38

Dear Dr Pipes,

regrading bizarre sex stories from the Islamic world, did you hear the tale ofthe Islamic cleric who was castrated by his second wife for attempting to marry a third time? It actually happened in India (ref 1). Our dear religious fellow (the cleric) was only trying to follow what Allah and Muhammad asked him to do but his second wife would have none of that. I hate to say this but while the guy was asleep the second wife just went ahead with a kitchen knife. The poor guy died in the aftermath.

I do know if the second wife should be punished for homicide (for killing a human) or blasphemy (for defying Allah's orders) but it should not matter because in either case the punishment in either case is death by hanging. Some anti Muslim people in India, however, believe that the second wife should be rewarded for her courage and it is the first wife who should be punished for not being courageous enough,

Whatever is done to the second wife by the Indian court system, my advice to all Muslim men is to avoid getng a third wife or choose a very docile second wife.
