A Month of Islam and Multiculturalism in Britain: July 2016

July 3. Azad Chaiwala, a Muslim entrepreneur in Manchester, launched a campaign to “remove the taboo” behind polygamy by starting two polygamy matchmaking sites: secondwife.com, exclusive to Muslims, and polygamy.com, open to “Muslims, Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, atheists, agnostics — whoever you are.” Chaiwala said:

“I was 12 when I came out of the polygamy closet… Changing people’s perception of polygamy. If I can do that, and bring more family stability, happiness and a large support system infrastructure, I’ll be happy. And in the end, I’m a Muslim and I’m rewarded for doing good. So I hope that when I die, my creator will reward me with something better than what I had in this world in return. It’s almost like I get my religious kick out of it, I get my business kick out of it and I also get a lot of thank-you letters.”

Polygamy is illegal in Britain.

  • Polygamy is illegal in Britain. Same as in Canada, except for Muslims.

    Polygamy is insane but there’s no difference between polygamy and being married with a number of mistresses. It’s a time honoured tradition. However, as long as the law of the land is adhered to, (marriage is a contract between two people only, there can be only one spouse at a time, inheritance rights apply only to the spouse) then off you go lads. If some idiot wants to father 20 children with four different women go for it. There’s no law against it. He does have to support them though and only one of those women can claim spousal rights. The others are SOL. We need to get rid of the welfare state. It will kill polygamy dead in its tracks.
