Men should have sex slaves, says female Kuwaiti politician

Jun 6, 2011 

KUWAIT CITY // Salwa al Mutairi, a former parliamentary candidate, said in a video posted on You Tube last month that sex slaves should be legal and prisoners from war-torn countries, such as Chechnya, would make suitable concubines.

Ms al Mutairi said she asked Saudi muftis what the Islamic ruling was on owning sex slaves while on a trip to Mecca because she had a male colleague who was "young and something of a womaniser".
The mufti told her it is not haram, or forbidden, she said. "The context must be that of a Muslim nation conquering a non-Muslim nation, so these jawari have to be prisoners of war."

Jariya is an Arabic term meaning "concubine" or "sex slave". The plural of the word is jawari.
Ms al Mutairi said free women must be married with a contract but, with concubines, "the man just buys her and that's it. That's enough to serve as marriage".

The ruling was confirmed by "specialised people of the faith" in Kuwait, she said. "They said, 'That's right, the only solution for a decent man who has the means, who is overpowered by desire and who does not want to commit fornication, is to acquire jawari'."

Offices could be opened to run the sex trade in the same way recruitment agencies provide domestic labourers, Ms al Mutairi suggested.

"One of the countries where [I see this trade is possible] is Chechnya. The country is at war with another state, so there are some captives for sure. I say go and buy those captives, they might just die of hunger over there. I say go and buy them and sell them to merchants here in Kuwait who may otherwise commit a sin."

"I don't see anything wrong with it, nothing at all," she said, adding that the caliph Haroun al Rashid had one wife and more than 2,000 concubines in his possession when he died.
"So there's no shame in it and it is not haram, our Sharia law allows it," she said.
Haroun al Rashid ruled over an area covered by modern-day Iran, Iraq and Syria 12 centuries ago.
Ms al Mutairi's video on You Tube has been viewed more than 84,000 times since it was uploaded on May 24.

Ms al Mutairi finished 23rd in the fifth constituency with more than 1,200 votes in the parliamentary election in 2009.

Candidates who finish in the top 10 are selected for parliament.

I'm embarrassed that we still have such mentalities with twisted definition of what is halal and what's not.
that's just freaking insane!

I wonder if her view would be the same is she was born in Chechnya and was bought by someone? Surely, that would be fine in her eyes.

She had better hope Chechnya is never richer than Kuwait, otherwise she might find her daughters becoming the sex slaves of the Chechens. Imagine that!

The Linoleum Surfer said...

I'm not sure how learned her "sheikhs" are, but she certainly needs a crash course in politics...

As for following such religious "experts", I put this in the "Electric Mufti" category!


Thats What I said...

Ah! Was that why the USofA recaptured Kuwait after the Kuwaiti citizens had largly fled the country in fear , trepidation and inability to do anything to help themselves.
So that the Kuwaities could promote Human Trafficking and advocate Slavery.

I can imagine the queues of Saudis and Kuwaitis et al – standing by the port quay waiting while the slave ship arrives from lands overseas bringing the slaves to the slave merchants.

Perhaps slavery was the real reason Saddam captured Kuwait, he needed some slaves for his people and who better than ones next door neighbours.

I suggest that the governments who citizens work in Kuwait advise them to leave – as a religious fatwa makes it clear they could be next

I thought she wanted to be one of them slaves, that's why she's promoting the idea.

Clever lady.

Seriously though, would like to know what she thinks about her daughters being slaves.

Would be a nice situation. Daughters or religion.

Waste of space and oxygen this lady.

Nothing more to say other than disgusted.

So sad, I am not a Muslim but I am pretty sure that 99.9% of the Muslim population must be very disappointed to have their faith tainted by this women's interpretation. It is my understanding that Islam stands against the violation of women. The Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) was one of the earliest activists for women's rights!!
