Egypt moves to legalise necrophilia
Al Arabiya reports that the Egypt’s National Council for Women (NCW) does not want the parliament to lower the minimum age of marriage to 14 and allow a husband to have sex with his wife within six hours of her death.

Reportedly, Egyptian columnist Amro Abdul Samea in al-Ahram, writes of Dr. Mervat al-Talawi, head of the NCW:
“Talawi tried to underline in her message that marginalizing and undermining the status of women in future development plans would undoubtedly negatively affect the country’s human development, simply because women represent half the population.”
The dead sex stuff is rooted in the words of a Moroccan cleric named Zamzami Abdul Bari who said marriage remains “valid even after death”, and women can have sex with their dead husband.
