Muslim leader in Australia wants to be allowed to have a second wife under Shariah law

A Muslim leader who wants to to be allowed to have a second wife has been told by his current spouse that she is fine with it.

Keysar Trad, who is president of the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils, said it was natural for men to have more than wife and that it was better to have two wives than to divorce the first.

Mr Trad called for the part of Shariah law that allows for men to have up to four wives to be accepted in Australia and admitted that he wanted a second wife.
