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.

The Parliamentary Committee on Information Technology (IT) has summoned Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey on February 25 over measures taken to ensure the safety and security of the users and allegations that the social media site is discriminating against “nationalist” posts on its platform.

In this regard, Twitter on Tuesday announced to bring its Ads Transparency Centre to India on March 11 that allows everyone to view political ads with details like ad spend and targeting demographics.

“The Twitter rules were updated to provide clearer guidance on several key issues including fake accounts, attributed activity and distribution of hacked materials,” said the company.

Twitter said it continues to invest intensively to identify and combat bad faith actors who try to manipulate the service.

“We have formed an internal, cross functional elections group to lead electoral integrity work in India from now through polling day.
