Riyadh, August 21, 2016: A group of Saudi men have formed a society to promote remarriages of widows and divorcees within the existing system of polygamy in Saudi Arabia, the media reported on Sunday.

There are more than two million unmarried women, including widows and divorcees, in Saudi Arabia. Under the Saudi laws, these women are allowed to remarry, but the practice is not common.

Doctors, engineers, religious scholars and university professors are among the 100 founders of the new society, in which eight per cent of overall members are women, Xinhua news agency reported.

“We will be promoting men to marry more than one woman and females to accept such trend to give the chance for single women to have partners,” key founder of the society, Ataallah Al Abar, said.

Abar said he has submitted official documents to the authorities to process the establishment of the society.

The society will have a website that will be a matrimony portal for both men and women.

Polygamy is common in Saudi Arabia that implements all Islamic rules, as the religion allows a man to marry up to four women at the same time. (IANS)

The term, Love Jihad is making rounds from the last couple of few years and has emerged as a hot topic for debate in our society. It is quite prevalent in many of the Indian states. As per the various statements of the Hindu activists, Love Jihad is when a Muslim boy manipulates a Hindu girl to get married by forcing them to convert to Islam. The next thing follows it is, preaching of sermons to the young girls. In such cases, Muslim boys are instructed to lure the Hindu girls with various techniques and gain their trust.

Many politicians and public figures have come forward to raise their voice against the menace of Love Jihad. A few months back, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath also attested the very fact of Love Jihad in Kerala. The southern states are a major victim of this peril.

In 2006, Bajrang Dal leaders declared a campaign to save the Hindu girls from the clutches of Muslim boys. Then the angle of Love Jihad in Karnataka was very much a reality. There the situation was such that the members of Vishwa Hindu Parishad started dragging the Hindu girls who used to be found mingled with Muslim boys to the police station. Then the girl was shame by summoning their parents and publishing their names in local newspapers. In some places, Church was very much in apprehension regarding Love Jihad.

Congress and other LEFT parties have claimed it to be a hoax. In one of the speeches, even the former Kerala DGP also highlighted and accepted the very reality of it.

In one of a recent incident, a person named Niraj Gera published an ordeal of a girl, who went through the nightmare of Love Jihad. The plight of the girl was very much spine-chilling as per her story. She was mentally tortured by the Muslim boy and his family. Fortunately, at last, the girl was lucky enough to get out of the merciless clutches of the boy.

There is no doubt that fake news makes the circle in our society but it doesn’t change the very fact of Love Jihad. The thing remains a hoax until it strikes you. People who are encouraging it are not even doing justice to their own faith itself.
