London based daily, al-Quds al-Arabi, reported that Saudi Arabia’s highest religious authority issued a fatwa that allows a starving man to chop off and eat the body of his wife.

The alleged fatwa has caused a stir among the kingdom’s residence and stroked a controversy. It has been reported that Grand Mufti, Abdul Aziz Al ash-Sheikh, said that the act would display the wife’s obedience to her husband and her willingness to become one with his flesh.

The release of the alleged fatwa also took Twitter to a storm where many twitter users expressed their anger against the edict.

A user tweeted that, “Islamic cleric in Saudi issues fatwa for Muslim men: If facing starvation, you can eat ur wife! I appeal all Muslim women to marry Hindu men!”

Another user tweeted, “YES finally women are declared halal! New fatwa: Muslims may eat their wives.

No doubt, why the Grand Mufti previously declared that, “Twitter was the source of all evil.”

On the other hand, Khalid ben Abdel-Rahman El-Shaye’, assistant secretary general of the Global Commission for Introducing the Messenger, told CNN Arabic that, “The truth is that this is fabricated and made up from its basis. These ill thoughts cannot come from any Muslim, regardless of a great scholar who Muslims refer to from around the world. It was made up to create this confusion and damage.”

However, noticing the rising rage of people worldwide, Grand Mufti himself had to come in front of people to deny the alleged fatwa.

Pakistan has failed miserably to protect Hindus, their interests.

A Hindu temple in Pakistan's Punjab province was reportedly vandalized by hundreds of people after a nine-year-old Hindu boy, who allegedly urinated at a local seminary, received bail, a media report said on Thursday.

According to the Dawn news report, the incident took place on Wednesday in Bhong town, about 60 km from Rahim Yar Khan city.

Besides the vandalization, the mob also blocked the Sukkur-Multan Motorway (M-5), the report added.

Citing sources, Dawn news said that a case was registered against the minor on July 24 based on a complaint filed by a cleric, Hafiz Muhammad Ibrahim, of the Darul Uloom Arabia Taleemul Quran.

The sources said that "some Hindu elders did tender an apology to the seminary administration saying the accused was a minor and mentally challenged".

But, when a lower court granted him bail a few days ago, some people incited the public in the town on Wednesday and got all shops there closed in protest, the report quoted the sources as further saying.

A video clip showing people wielding clubs and rods storming the temple and smashing its glass doors, windows, lights, and damaging the ceiling fans went viral on social media.
