British Muslims reviving polygamy
by Rosemary Bennett
A growing number of young British Muslims are taking second or third wives in an unexpected revival of polygamy, according to religious leaders.
The new wave of polygamy is revealed in a special report by the BBC Asian Network using findings from the Islamic Sharia Council.
The council, which provides legal advice and guidance to Muslims, said it was receiving an unprecedented number of inquiries about polygamous marriages.
