EGYPT: MUSLIM MEN VS. WOMEN’S RIGHT TO DIVORCE
J. Grant Swank, Jr.
Egyptian males are angry that Muslim women have the legal right to divorce them. The Islamic males have been used to a society giving them the upper hand over females.
Every 12 minutes a wife divorces her husband, the total now reaching 12,000. This is embarrassing to Islamic males.
“’Women use this law to satisfy their personal whims and for the most trivial of reasons. Several cases are disgraceful,’” men complain to media.
Angered males have formed the Egyptian Organization for Divorced Men.
Leader Abdul RahmanAbdul Rahman Hamed states: “’The law of unconditional divorce has become a sword hanging over men’s heads’” per “Egypt men slam giving women right to divorce” at http://www.alarabiya.net/articles/2009/12/09/93654.html
