Husbands who aren’t into lively sex would have the option of making love to their dead wives under a bill before the Egyptian parliament. The “Farewell Intercourse” bill would permit a husband to have sex with his wife up to six hours after her death. Theoretically, women could do the same, but practical realities would be an obstacle. The strange practice was discussed last year by controversial Moroccan cleric Zamzami Abdelbair, who declared that necrophilia is religiously acceptable. An Egyptian journalist blasted the idea as a “catastrophe,” reports al-Arabiya. Could “the panel that will draft the Egyptian constitution possibly discuss such issues?” he asked. “Has the Islamic trend reached that far?”
Extremist Islam now supports necrophilia? And this law will may it mainstream in Egypt? What the hell did the Arab Spring really bring?
