Saudi Mufti: A Muslim man can cannibalize, eat his wife

Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah, a Saudi Mufti, has issued a fatwa, saying that a man is allowed to cannibalize and eat his wife.In justifying his fatwa, the Mufti said this is only permitted under one circumstance: when the husband is extremely hungry.He said that a man can eat his wife or parts of her body if the husband was afflicted with a severe hunger which may lead to his death, adding it comes in line with [the Sharia’s principle of] a woman’s obedience to her husband.

The new fatwa has met with harsh reactions in the Arab world, with a large number of Arab thinkers and intellectuals coming down hard on the fatwa.
