Tunisia: Muslim women in Tunisia have started protesting in favour of polygamy. This has resulted in a very serious crisis in view of the increasing number of unmarried women in the country.
It may be mentioned that polygamy is not only a crime but also considered as an evil in the society of Tunisia.
Islamic researcher, Mr. Sami Birhan told that women who did not find a life partner will get an opportunity to get married if polygamy is allowed but men would prefer young girls.
Some of the people in the country opine that the demand for polygamy is an attempt to defame Islamy Annehza Party so that by raising this slogan, the ruling party could be given benefit.
According to a recent report, there are 50 lakh women in Tunisia out of which 50% are unmarried. They are in the age group of 25-34 years.
