Iranian Cleric Blames Women Opposing PolygamyKurdpa – In his weekly televised lessons aired on IRIB Channel 1, Iranian cleric Mohsen Ghara'ati blamed women for opposing polygamy and standing in the way of their husbands who wish to get a second wife. Hojat-ol-Islam Mohsen Ghara'ati is the head of the Center for the Promotion of Prayers and a Muslim scholar teaching and promoting the Quran.
Referring to men who possess the physical strength and the financial means to have a second wife, Mohsen Ghara'ati said, “If a man has the physical power and the financial resources, if he has two cars, two houses, two cell phones, and two of everything, if he can provide two of everything, when it is time for marriage, women say: No! One God; one wife.”
Mohsen Ghara'ati added, “What does this mean? This means the hell with one million women! If they commit sins, the hell with them! If they burn in hell, the hell with them! This is female jealousy. Women’s envy and resentment cause one million other young females to remain widowed.”
At the end of his televised lesson, Mohsen Ghara'ati concluded, “About twenty years ago, Tehran’s Prosecutor told me that there were 500,000 young widows in Tehran. This was 20 years ago. Right now, there are probably one million young widows in Tehran.”
