[Politics] Just when you thought

People couldn’t get stupider…

I’m sure many Malaysians would have read YESTERDAY’s comment about our School girls’ uniforms being too.. sexy and that the “men” wouldn’t be able to turn their eyes away even if they wanted to (… right).

Well, this asshattery tops it all. Here’s the version from the Star.

An Independent MP told Parliament that there would be fewer marital problems and a lower divorce rate if Muslim women were taught to accept polygamy.

ibrahim ali byelection by-election pengkalan pasirIbrahim Ali, member of parliament for Kelantan’s Pasir Mas, proposed moves yesterday to address the issue in response to complaints that women were always blamed for marital issues.

“Such problems happen because women cannot accept polygamy. From a preventive point of view, what about doing a big campaign so that women can accept polygamy?” Ibrahim said.

The lawmaker said women who are pregnant or who have “problems” when they hit their 50s do not understand that men still want to “have fun”.

A former Umno leader, Ibrahim ran under the PAS banner in the March 8 general elections but have opted to be independent.

Beaten up, but told to be patient

Fuziah Salleh, an opposition lawmaker, had earlier questioned the qualifications of Syariah Court counsellors as she had received complaints from women that they were forced to take the blame for most marital problems.

“They are not counselled but given ‘advice’. And every time, they are told that the woman is to be blamed. If it is a family problem, they must be patient. If they are beaten up, they must also be patient,” she said.

Muslim men in Malaysia are allowed up to four wives. Activists and women’s groups say polygamy is cruel and has deviated from its original purpose in Islam, which was to protect widows and orphans.

Islam is the official religion of Malaysia, where more than 60 percent of its 27 million people are Muslim Malays. Polygamy is illegal for non-Muslims.
