A Muslim leader wants Australian men to be allowed multiple wives and hopes the public will one day support his dream of Islamic marriage equality. By Stephen  Johnson.

However Mr Trad, the Sydney-based founder of the Islamic Friendship Association of Australia, is taking a stand against gay marriage as the Turnbull Government proceeds with a postal vote on the issue. …

In February, Mr Trad controversially said the Koran allowed husbands to lightly beat their wives ‘as a last resort’ before clarifying he was giving a clumsy interpretation of the religious text.

Two months later, Women of Hizb ut-Tahrir released a video saying husband could hit their wives with a small stick.

Where Islamic polygamy is allowed, women are not allowed multiple husbands.

Under Sharia law, an Islam legal system, a man can divorce a woman by saying ‘I divorce you’ three times but a woman does not have this same privilege.

Interesting … framing it as “Islamic marriage equality”. Now that you mention “equality”, well of course it is a must have. So “marriage equality” will mean polygamy next?
