Mosques' advice: 'don't report abusive husbands'


Muslim imams caught on tape covering up rape, violence against women

The women claimed they were beaten, forced to have sex and that they were unhappy to be in a polygamous relationship (their husband had married a second wife) things that are against Swedish law.

Almost all Imams told them not to go to the police and to simply accept these things.

When caught, they play victim: when muzz howls,  it is wise to recall that lying to infidels is the order of the day with these fanatics.

“They confirm the negative picture of Muslims. It’s a real shame that they confirm of the prejudices that Islamophobes have-“–Mohammad Fazlhashemi, Muselprof

After the program was shown on tv the muslims complained they were being “demonized by the media” and that the recordings were “edited”.

Six out of ten mosques in Sweden gave women advice about how to deal with spousal abuse and polygamy that contradicted Swedish law, a media investigation has revealed.

 Mosques' advice: 'don't report abusive husbands'

Using hidden cameras and telephone recording equipment, two women posing as abused spouses visited ten of Sweden’s largest mosques as part of a report put together by Sveriges Television (SVT) investigative news programme “Uppdrag granskning”.

The women then asked leaders at the mosques for advice about how to address issues such as polygamy, assault and non-consensual sex.

Six out of the ten mosques visited by the women, who had also claimed that their husbands had multiple wives, told them that they should nevertheless agree to have sex with their husbands even if they didn’t want to.

Six of the mosques also advised the women against reporting spousal abuse to the police. Leaders at another mosque were divided on the issue, while women received vague advice from yet another mosque.

Only two of the mosques gave the women clear advice directing them to report their abusive husbands to police.

The women were also told by nine of the ten mosques that men had the right – under certain circumstances – to have more than one wife.

Only one mosque told the women that men didn’t have the right to be married to several women at the same time and that their husbands needed to follow Swedish law.

The advice, which in many cases advocated violating Swedish laws, came from imams or family counselors at the mosques.

When “Uppdrag granskning” host Janne Josefsson approached two of the largest mosques featured in the programme to inquire about their official position on matters discussed by the women, the answers he received were totally different than what the women heard.

The chair of the Islamic Association in Uppsala claimed in the story that people should follow Swedish law.

When confronted by what the imam at the Uppsala mosque told the women, the Islamic leader explained that the imam had expressed his personal opinion in urging the women to forgive their abusive husbands rather than report them to police.

The imam with whom the woman met at the mosque in Stockholm defended polygamy and also advised against filing a police report about husbands who beat them.

He suggested instead that the women try to show their husbands more love.

“Don’t refuse to give him love, because then he might change,” said the imam.

Upon seeing the SVT report, however, the board of the Islamic Association in Stockholm (Islamiska förbundet Stockholm) decided to suspend the imam immediately and launch an internal investigation.

“This is a clear breach of Swedish law and they commit professional misconduct in their capacities as imams and associations,” Mohammad Fazlhashemi, a professor and author of books on Muslim intellectual history, told the TT news agency.

Fazlhashemi, who also appears in the SVT report, has reviewed a written transcript of the advice given to the women.

“What these men are saying to the woman violates their human rights. The men demean and insult the women when they say ‘you need to tolerate that these men hit you’,” said Fazlhashemi.

He is highly critical of the imams featured in the SVT report for not following Swedish law.

“Considering the fact that the mosques have received state funding, they have also committed to following Swedish law and the basic principles of democracy,” he said.

Fazlhashemi describes the Muslim leaders featured in the piece as “conservative, letter of the law traditionalists”.

“Now it’s time for some housecleaning. They need to weed out the bad seeds,” he said.

Fazlhashemi, who is also a Muslim, expressed concerns that such outdated mosque representatives benefit Muslim-haters and the far-right Sweden Democrats.

“They confirm the negative picture of Muslims. It’s a real shame that they confirm of the prejudices that Islamophobes have,” he said.


Please note the sleazy reference to “Islamophobia.” It’s okay to beat and rape women, but don’t point out these crimes, or you will be guilty of the horrible transgression of “Islamophobia.” There is nothing remotely “irrational” about detesting an ideology that causes its adherents to behave constantly in this and many other abominable ways. Criticizing the evils of Islamic fanaticism is not “phobic” – it is moral. Not criticizing such a violent and hateful mentality is immoral. (Hard to believe I have to point out that fact, but it seems much of humanity has lost its moral compass.) “Islamophobia” is a “loathsome term” trumpeted by the Muslim Brotherhood in order to stifle criticism of this archaic and barbaric male-dominant ideology. The cause of “Islamophobia” is ISLAM and MUSLIMS. Nobody needs to “demonize” Islam and Muslims – they do that all by themselves. Time to grow up and grow a conscience, folks!  (Freethoughtnation has more)
