    A programme on Radio 4 You may all wish to tune in!

    Wednesdays 13th and 20th October, 11:00 am

    Inside the Harem


    Shagufta at a mosque in Lahore, Pakistan
    Shagufta Yaqub a young educated British Muslim, got married 2 years ago and
    in her marriage contract did not prohibit her husband from taking another
    wife.

    To discover more about both the example of the Qur'an and current practice,
    Shagufta meets people in polygamous relationships both here and in her
    birthplace of Pakistan and talks to scholars, lawyers and women's
    organisations.

    This is her personal journey - will her belief, that polygamy is a divinely
    ordained right of the man, be challenged?

    A leading Muslim scholar at Cambridge University claims that men are
    biologically designed to desire a multiplicity of women and that polygamy
    should be legalised in the UK


    A primary schoolteacher in Birmingham talks about his life with two wives
    and six children - all living in the same house


    A man and his second wife in Pakistan tell of their daily fear of being
    killed by assassins at the behest of their families

    Shagufta in Kashmir, Pakistan
    A Muslim convert says that being a second wife provides her with the best of
    both worlds - she wants to pursue her career and does not want a full-time
    husband


    And Shagufta hears some astonishing claims as to how some second wives are
    brought into Britain.

    Tejwant Ji Please update on this issue.
     
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
