Outrage: Egyptian husbands could soon have sex with their dead wives if a new law is approved

Egyptian husbands will soon be legally allowed to have sex with their dead wives for up to six hours after their death, local media reports.

The controversial new law is claimed to be part of a raft of measures being introduced by the Islamist-dominated parliament.

It will also see the minimum age of marriage lowered to 14 and the ridding of women’s rights of getting education and employment.

TV anchor Jaber al-Qarmouty slammed the notion of letting a husband have sex with his wife after her death under the so-called ‘Farewell Intercourse’ draft law.

He said: ‘This is very serious. Could the panel that will draft the Egyptian constitution possibly discuss such issues? Did Abdul Samea see by his own eyes the text of the message sent by Talawi to Katatni?

‘This is unbelievable. It is a catastrophe to give the husband such a right! Has the Islamic trend reached that far? Is there really a draft law in this regard? Are there people thinking in this manner?’

Although reported in local media, there are some suggestions from within Egypt that the plans do not exist and were merely seeded by journalists loyal to ousted President Hosni Mubarak.

    Stop propaganda,Muslims know their rights and regulations all over the World….do you think by depriving their rights to exercise their faith you will change their belief? this is a straight way,a way that has been made obligatory by Almighty Allah,no human being will overcome it by mere use of oppression, intimidation,death and any other means.May ALLAH forgive them and grant them jannatul firdaus,arise them with the shuhadas and the holy prophets…..amen.
