Polygamy Is a Responsibility in Islam, Says Muslim Council of Britain
Having multiple wives in Islamic cultures is a responsibility and not even a right, according to an article on the Muslim Association of Britain (MAB) website.
The article does not say why it is a “responsibility” but the reason is obvious: so that Muslims can multiply faster than any other religious group.
It was announced last year that the British Government had already accepted that Muslim husbands with more than one wife in this country qualified for extra benefits even though they technically were breaking the anti-bigamy law.
The decision by the Government means that Muslims with multiple wives were cleared to claim state benefits for all their different partners.
