There seem to be hardly any taker for the call of the author Salman Rushdie that “the windows need to be thrown open so that the modern world can come in”. Muslim women in Hyderabad (India) are subject to unbridled sexploitation at the hands of old predators with new vigour. Often bearded, invariably in flowing robes and expensive turbans. The rich, middle-aged Arabs increasingly stalk the deprived streets of Hyderabad like medieaval monarchs would stalk their harems. These viagra-enabled Arabs are perpetrating a blatant crime under the vaneer of nikaah (the Islamic rules of marriage). Misusing the sanctioned provision which allows a Muslim man to have four wives at a time, many old Arabs are not just marrying minors in Hyderabad, but marrying more than one minor in a single sitting, writes Mohammad Wajihuddin in The Times of India, a newspaper from India.
