Saudi Grand Mufti DENIES fatwa allowing men to eat wives
(snip)...Over the past few days, several pro-Iranian media outlets, such as the online portal of Al Allam news channel and Lebanon’s al-Jumohouria newspaper have carried the story without backing it with any evidence or specifying where or when such a fatwa has been issued.
The unsubstantiated fatwa attributed to the Grand Mufti claims that such sacrifice is the ultimate way of showing subordination and love to her husband as a “way for their two bodies to become one.”
However, Sheikh has issued a statement to the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) where brushes off such media reports as “attempts by enemies to distract society from their main cause at the moment, which is standing together behind our wise leadership against attempts to distort the ummah [the world’s Muslims].”
As for the original source of the fake fatwa, CNN Arabic has reported that the imaginary edict was first mentioned in a sarcastic column written by a satirst Moroccan blogger called "Israfel al-Maghribi."
Despite The Onion-like column carrying the name "Akhbar al-Tanz" (which in Moroccan dialict means 'sarcastic news'), several media outlets, including various pro -Iranian ones, still went on to report what was meant to be a joke as news. [end snip]
