Fatwa Follies: Proposed reform criminalizing “marital rape” declared “heresy” for the childrens sake…

“Dar al-Fatwa also slammed as “heresy” a clause in the bill that criminalises marital rape, accusing those behind the draft law of “inventing new types of crimes.”

“This will have a negative impact on Muslim children… who will see their mother threatening their father with prison, in defiance of patriarchal authority, which will in turn undermine the moral authority” of fathers, it said.”

Fatwa-t-a-good that did.
