Moscow, Sk Mikhail Islam: One of the most cherished weapons for the Islamophobes across the globe is that Islam promotes Polygamy. The mainstream media of West and East don’t think twice before labelling polygamy as a ‘monopoly’ of Islam. This Islamophobic rhetoric has penetrated in our societies in a way that today’s academic circles rely more on the media projection than any statistic which can be easily accessible. Just few days ago, I met an academician who has Master degree in Philosophy, parroted the same ‘opinion’ on polygamy in Islam. When I enquired that whether he checked statistics on this issue or not, he simply said NO.
Now we have some usual shitty entertainment from ‘reputed’ Islamophobic Indian media on this issue. The TOI has published an article that says, “Monogamy weakens: As Polygamy Grows: Traditional lifelong monogamous relationship are dying in the West.”
It means when it comes about the restricted, just and practical Islamic concept (far from the media perception) of Polygamy then it is something ‘barbaric medieval practice’, but if the Western culture accepts polygamy then no matter how much it violates women rights, its still something a must follow ‘trend’.
Actually, these sheeple and the ‘academic’ herd have no option other than to accept blindly what the Western people do or think! Polygamy is wrong unless practice by West, Pedophilia is wrong unless their ‘prophet’ Dawkins says its ‘physiological’, Killing innocent civilians is barbaric unless the victims are Gazans. Censoring free expression is wrong until it goes against the Zionist version of ‘anti-semitism’ and the list is long..
By the way, the unique concept of Islamic polygamy has nothing to do with adulterous polygamy practicing by the ‘educated’ in the East and West.
