Damam,April 11: Saudi Arabian grand mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah is believed to have passed a ruling that if men suffer from “severe hunger” then they can eat their wives’ body parts.
According to Daily Star, he said that the fatwa, an Islamic legal pronouncement, shows the “sacrifice of women and obedience to her husband”.
Aziz’s statement has raised concern and debate all over the social media since yesterday.
However, religious authorities have denied that mufti ever issued the fatwa.
Khalid ben Abdel-Rahman El-Shaye, from the Global Commission for Introducing the Messenger and the Muslim World League, said that it was not true and that it was all “fabricated”.
