71 year old Muslim League Kerala President marries again

oct 26th, 2007

From: arun

I was born and brought up (until 15) in the heartland of Muslims of Kerala- Malappuram. And during my childhood, I remember that most of the Muslim houses in the neighbourhood where I spent my childhood, had girls who had been "Talaq"ed and/or married twice , thrice, and so on (and with 1 or 2 kids in each wedlock)... The only case of a stable marriage of a neighbouring Muslim girl, the last time I met had a 6th kid or so
 
So, I am the least surprised at this news, even though his marriage with the previous wife seems reasobaly stable and less than the average no of kids
 
 
Here is an approximate summary of the news
 
 Muslim League state President (since 1975) and a prominent religious leader of the Muslims Panakkad Sayyid Muhammadali Shihab Thangal (71) married a 45 year old widow . His former wife (with whom he had 4 kids) passed away last year while Thangal was undergoing treatment in USA

Nizhal Yoddha,
You wrote “I remember that most of the Muslim houses in the neighbourhood where I spent my childhood, had girls who had been "Talaq"ed and/or married twice , thrice, and so on (and with 1 or 2 kids in each wedlock)... ”

A couple of days back, I saw on TV (either CNN-IBM or NDTV) that the number of "Talaq"ed or plainly abandoned "girls" has greatly increased, and the average number of kids for each was reported as 4-5. Narendra Modi was right when he said (as reported in Indian press) that the motto of Muslims is "Ham paanch, hamaara pachees".
The tremendous rate at which Muslim population is increasing in Kerala (and elsewhere also) is very scary.

He is just following in the footsteps of his Abrahamic prophets. I don't care about what the old dog does inside the privacy of his own house as long as 1) he does not attempt to recruit any Hindu women for his ministering, like that Malayali poetess convert - Kamala Das aka "Suraiyya" 2) does not procreate like rabbits. The alarming magnitude of their population increase is set to prove the Malthusian theory regarding food availability in India in the near future. The food riots in West Bengal, the inflation in foddgrain prices and starvation deaths etc can be attributed in large part to unchecked Bangladeshi muslim immigration and uncontrolled breeding of Mohammedans within India.The UPA has not hesitated to impose an "education cess" on taxpayers to fund cross subsidisation of mohamemdan madarsas. How about a tax on Mohammedans to recover the economic burden imposed on the nation by their polygamy?

Recently i was watching a local news channel in Andhra where a Madarsa head was speaking that It is not necessary for Muslims to Register their Marriage.
I find this odd and so openly they are opposing some of the verdicts given by courts and rules framed by govt.

In a country why should be rules different for majority and minorities . Is it just vote bank politics ?
