A Muslim woman poltician who once ran for parliament has called for sex slavery to be legalised – and suggested that non-Muslim prisoners from war-torn countries would make suitable concubines.
Salwa al Mutairi argued buying a sex-slave would protect decent, devout and ‘virile’ Kuwaiti men from adultery because buying an imported sex partner would be tantamount to marriage.
To acquire the workers, she would browse through female prisoners of war in other countries. She has apparently said that they would receive a better life from this idea.
There was no shame in it and it is not haram’ (forbidden) under Islamic Sharia law. The man just buys her and that’s it. That’s enough to serve as marriage.
Her remarks, made in a video posted on YouTube last month and carried by newspapers in the Gulf states in recent days, have sparked outrage in cyber-space from fellow Kuwaitis and others in the wider region.
Mutairi has also said that during a recent visit to Mecca, she asked Saudi muftis – Muslim religious scholars – what the Islamic ruling was on owning sex slaves. They are said to have told her that it is not haram. In other words, there’s nothing wrong with it.
They said, that’s right, the only solution for a decent man who has the means, who is overpowered by desire and who does not want to commit fornication, is to acquire jawari.
Jawari is the plural of the Arabic term jariya, meaning ‘concubine’ or ‘sex slave’.
One Saudi mufti supposedly told Mutairi:
The context must be that of a Muslim nation conquering a non-Muslim nation, so these jawari have to be prisoners of war.
Concubines, she argued, would suit Muslim men who fear being ‘seduced or tempted into immoral behaviour by the beauty of their female servants’.
Again, here is another reason why we should be protecting our country from Sharia. We do not know what is going on behind closed doors in this country. The degradation of women is absolutely sickening, and it is quite apparent in this story. No wonder Saudi muftis told her it was OK; they’re men!
I hope that this sort of vileness, wickedness and shame never darkens the doorway of our country. We’re heading on a slippery slope if we push our boundaries as a nation further and further away.
