Has a Muslim in a plural marriage ever had a government entity file charges against them for violating the bigamy or anti-polygamy laws?
I have found a few instances of abuse and underage marriage where charges were filed but not specifically bigamy or polygamy charges. I also noticed that plural marriage in the Muslim community is on the increase.
Aly Hindy, a well-known imam in Toronto, Canada had this to say:
"This is in our religion and nobody can force us to do anything against our religion."
"If the laws of the country conflict with Islamic law, if one goes against the other, then I am going to follow Islamic law, simple as that."
Knowing that most states will not file charges for polygamy alone it seems that the laws are being applied fairly consistently…that is not at all…so then what is the point in having these "laws"?
