Men, on the other hand, can have premarital sex with anything they wish, including women, but in Islamic culture, women have as much rights as farm animals and must abide by the wishes of men because they are stronger than women and can beat them if they disobey. Interestingly, this is actually allowed in Islamic scripture.
"Men have authority over women because Allah has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because Allah has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them." --Qu'ran 4:34
Muhammad "struck me on the chest which caused me pain, and then said: Did you think that Allah and His Apostle would deal unjustly with you?" --Aisha (Sahih Muslim 2127).
Rahabbi Khurshed intentionally drank a lethal dose of vinegar a mere 40 days after her arranged marriage to 24-year-old Zafar Pirov in May. According to Radio Free Europe, she was obligated by the state to undergo a prenuptial medical exam that included a virginity test. Although it's technically optional, it's routinely forced on young Tajik women by both the bride and groom's families.
In spite of the fact that Khurshed passed the virginity test and obtained a certificate from her doctor stating she was a virgin, her paranoid husband pressed her and demanded she "tell the truth."
He then forced her to undergo more virginity tests and soon demanded he be allowed to take a second wife, which was probably what this was all about.
Many Muslim men cannot tolerate the idea that the woman they marry may have actually had a life before they met. They also worry that the 'other man' was more sexually pleasing than they are. It's known in science as an 'inferiority complex.'
Sadly, the young bride's mother, Fazila Mirzoeva, swears that Khurshed never even had a boyfriend or an intimate relationship before marrying this scumcrumpet. She said she doesn't understand why Pirov refused to believe her daughter's multiple medical exams.
Simple: he wanted a second wife.
Her family told Radio Free Europe that Khurshed admitted on her deathbed that she couldn't handle the pressure Pirov place upon her and believed suicide was her only way to escape her marriage.
Pirov, of course, claims her family made up their side of the story and said, 'My wife gave me a written statement that she allows me to get a second wife because she wasn't a virgin when we got married."
Weasel Pirov is under a travel ban pending his trial--no date has yet been set.
If found guilty of driving Khurshed to suicide, he could face eight years in prison . . . but he probably won't.
