Saudi Cleric Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah: Husbands Can Eat Their Wives (Updated)
Meet leading Saudi Arabian cleric Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah. Judging by this picture, you might want to have what he’s having.
But you really don’t.
A leading Saudi Arabian cleric has reportedly issued a controversial fatwa allowing a husband to chop off his wife and eat her body in the event of extreme hunger.
The fatwa, an Islamic edict, was widely attributed to the mufti of Saudi Arabia, Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah.
The grand mufti, who is the highest religious figure in Saudi Arabia, went on to substantiate the fatwa by saying this will allow the couple to “become one as their bodies will fuse together after the husband eats his wife”.
According to multiple local reports, the fatwa “allows a man to eat his wife or parts of her body, if the husband was afflicted with a severe hunger”.
The report added: “The fatwa is interpreted as evidence of the sacrifice of women and obedience to her husband and her desire for the two to become one.”
This is the same cleric who proclaimed that women driving is evil. So I guess here he is killing two birds with one stone.
Update: He denies having made the fatwa.
