Muslims Demand Polygamy In Response To Same Sex Unions
by Virginia Hale
Following the introduction of civil partnerships, Muslim representatives in Italy are now demanding the legalisation of polygamy.
Responding to a new law allowing same sex couples to enter civil unions, Hamza Piccardo argued that if gay relationships, which Muslims disagree with, are a civil right then Italians must accept polygamy as a civil right too.
The founder of the Union of Islamic Communities and Organisations (UCOII) in Italy took to Facebook to claim polygamy is a "civil right" and that Italy would benefit from the large number of Muslim births it would promote.
