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.

    I may be naive, but, aren’t there preexisting rules in Islam that state that murder, forcing another to commit suicide on your own behalf, and cannibalism are all horrific crimes that are technically forbidden under any circumstance?

    Pathetic “journalism”… I’m no supporter of the Wahabbis but slandering any man based on unsubstantiated claims from anonymous sources is pathetic. Iran and Saudi Arabia are the true enemies of the Ummah….not the country’s people but their “leaders”.
