    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

    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

    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

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