Pare che in Arabia Saudita le autorità religiose abbiano emanato una fatwa per cui se una donna ha a che fare con uomini non “autorizzati” (vedi marito o parenti stretti) può evitare di essere annichilita all’istante se li allatta…
As many of us know, women and men in Saudi Arabia must be careful not to mingle, as the insanely strict Islamic law bans mixing between the sexes who are not related. Recently, the Saudis have issued a fatwa that forces women who come into contact with unrelated men on a regular basis to breastfeed them so that they can be considered “relatives” and not potential lovers. The strangest part is, this isn’t the actual issue at hand.
In questo modo diventano parenti.
According to the Gulf News, Sheikh Al Obeikan, a consultant to the Ministry of Justice and an adviser to the royal court stated, “the man should take the milk, but not directly from the breast of the woman. He should drink it and then becomes a relative of the family, a fact that allows him to come in contact with the woman without breaking Islam’s rules about mixing.”
Ovviamente sulle modalità di consumo del latte ci sono regole altrettanto inappuntabili:
The woman has to pump her breast milk into a glass and give it to the unrelated male.
Eppure anche qui ci sono visioni discordanti e c’è dibattito:
Another high-profile sheik, Abi Ishaq Al Huwaini, believes that the men should suckle the breast milk directly from the woman’s breast.
Vabbè, leggetevi tutta la storia qui.
