Whether done through intentional malice or bad fact/ data checking. A number of Western oriented news websites, inclusive of one Arab website released a news report, indicating that the Muslim Brotherhood of Egypt’s Parliament were in line to bring into law, permission for a husband to have sex with his deceased wife for a period of stipulated time after her death. This act is commonly referred to as necrophilia. The problem is though, as the Christian Science Monitor has indicated, there is no actual factual source for this story. There is nothing indicating that this is a true law or even a concept being discussed by the Muslim Brotherhood:
Today, Egypt’s state-owned Al Ahram newspaper published an opinion piece by Amr Abdul Samea, a past stalwart supporter of the deposed Hosni Mubarak, that contained a bombshell: Egypt’s parliament is considering passing a law that would allow husbands to have sex with their wives after death.
But extreme, not to mention inflammatory claims, need at minimum some evidence (and I’ve read my share of utter nonsense in Al Ahram over the years). The evidence right now? Zero.
Please click the above link to be taken to the CSM’s news report that completely refutes, what can only be described as a desperate claim against Islam.
