Islam Forces Couple To Divorce After Sleeptalking
Ahh Islam…how you provide us with such obvious examples of why you need to change.
NEW DELHI, India (Reuters) — A Muslim couple in India have been told by local Islamic leaders they must separate after the husband “divorced” his wife in his sleep, the Press Trust of India reported.
Sohela Ansari told friends that her husband Aftab had uttered the word “talaq,” or divorce, three times in his sleep, according to the report published in newspapers on Monday.
When local Islamic leaders got to hear, they said Aftab’s words constituted a divorce under an Islamic procedure known as “triple talaq.” The couple, married for 11 years with three children, were told they had to split.
As frequent commentor Bob Aman said when he forwarded this to me, “Whiskey. Tango. Foxtrot.”
