      Are apparently copies of the Quran. Im assuming copies, because Islamically one isnt allowed to marry two sisters at the same time. This is truly pathetic, a man who was very close to being our prime minster bound by ties of matrimony to our holy book.

      Amin Fahim's 4 sisters, according to cowasjee's sources and this book by Tariq Ali, are married to the Quran.

      Ravage, it is not known for sure whether this is true or not. Also, Sindhis do not like to talk about their families, especially sisters in the media, so I doubt McDoom will come out and clarify this. Also, even if they are married to the Quran, why must we blame McDoom for that? Maybe their sisters jahalat (if it was true) was greater than McDooms convincing powers.

      so you mean to say his sisters wanted to marry Quran so that McDoom could retain his property? all four of them? very altruistic indeed.

      there is always the slight chance that the rape victim might have been into that sort of stuff, and the possibility that the honour killing victim might be off to kill herself for her honour anyway.. it just isnt the most likely case.

      I haven't heard anywhere esp Pakistan a (Muslim) girl would want to marry Quran (not a tree or dog as heard in India), have you every heard of one (honestly speaking)?

      This is utterly sick and honestly we can't blame the women, they are forced by the men (bros and father). In such families/cases women really don't have any rights to refuse, condemn, or anything. Anyhow, this is a sick practice and it is sad that it is being practiced by such a prominent politician (if the news is true.)

      Are you referring to me? No, I didnt mean that, dont know how you even thought of that.

      But the fact remains, this is what the article said:

      "I have heard that Mr Amin Faheem's four sisters are married to the Quran - the custom that waderas have in Sindh by which they refuse to marry off their women in order to keep family wealth intact.

      I have heard alot of stuff too, but that doesnt always mean its true...

      Its a well known practice in the feudal system of Sindh. Nothing as a shocker, even if its real.

      Whatever it is , its a very sick system.

      Here is how I thought of that:

      Unless I am grossly misinterpreting you, you are suggesting that his sisters wanted to marry the Quran inspite of Makhdooms protestations along the lines of "no no, dont marry quran, i will happily part with my property.". Or like X2 you think its possible the motivation of his sisters jahalat (if it was true) was love marriage and not property..

      But the fact remains, this is what the article said:

      "I have heard that Mr Amin Faheem's four sisters are married to the Quran - the custom that waderas have in Sindh by which they refuse to marry off their women in order to keep family wealth intact.

      I have heard alot of stuff too, but that doesnt always mean its true...
      I posted another source, aside from Cowasjee. This is from Tariq Ali's book, a fairly respectable author:

      Uniquely, even for Pakistan, all his four brothers-in-law are the Koran

      Doesnt mean its true ofcourse, but then thats true for most media reports. It is possible that Zardari, Mush and Nawaz are corruption free, and Altaf has an overwhelming admiration for punjabies

      more:

      The only dark area is his personal life seems to be the treatment meted out to womenfolk in his family. Area people familiar with the the spiritual leader say that no one talks about the women of the family. They say that while the birth of sons is celebrated, no one knows when a daughter is born.

      There is also the issue of the marriage of the women to the Quran, as told by many. Close family friends and area people say “When nobody from the town gets to know about the birth of a female child in the family or a death for that matter, the news of marriages are also kept secret.”

      People do crazy things, like you mentioned, this one guy in India did marry a dog out of his free will in India, and I have a youtube link to the entire video. So yeah, maybe the girls out of their own jahalat did this on their own, and maybe it had nothing to do with inheritance. Again, I highly doubt this is true, as theres no factual evidence to prove it. It would be nice if McDoom comes out in the open and dismisses this as false though.

      I know what you are trying to say, lets not pin it on women just yet, the "wadera" traditions are well known to everyone so lets see if McDoom ever comes out to explain (highly unlikely).
