Al-Huda’s infamous Farhat Hashmi justified marital rape, and people are very triggered.
Farhat Hashmi and the organization she’s associated with, Al-Huda have found themselves under scrutiny quite a few times in the past for views that some on the liberal spectrum consider regressive. Now another video is making rounds on the internet where Farhat Hashmi is talking about how ‘marital rape’ does not exist since a husband cannot rape his wife.
Farhat Hashmi of Al-Huda is seen discussing the concept of marital rape in her controversial new video that has surfaced on the internet
According to Farhat Hashmi, a woman cannot say no to her husband, no matter how much she herself does not want to have sex.
#Salafi televangelist Farhat Hashmi: There's no such thing as marital rape. A wife must always submit to husband's sexual desires. Since women have joined workforce, it has become difficult for them to follow this divine commandment. https://t.co/6MOK0KOKQj pic.twitter.com/0Gf0ExUKXs

Of course, some people were incredibly upset because thy consider her views regressive
1. To defend and justify rape.
2. To blame women for it.
I have no tolerance for rape apologia, especially from a woman SO MANY women look to for guidance. Fuck Farhat Hashmi.
If you don't want to have sex & someone forces themselves on you – it's RAPE. Shohar be damned. https://t.co/6Jld4JUrkN

In a religion which prescribes that a woman cannot be coerced into breastfeeding her child, can there be permission for forced sex? Can there be permanent consent?
Farhat Hashmi preaches irrational & anti-women worldview which will die in due course. We only need to contest her. https://t.co/9VjTu1yPMh

Farhat Hashmi is garbage
And all the people who listen to her and agree with her are bigger garbage

No Farhat Hashmi, there is no “Rab ki Raza” in a husband coercing his wife to have sex with him if she doesn’t want to. Kindly keep this twisted version of Islam to yourself.

People were upset by the thought that Farhat Hashmi would insinuate that a woman’s consent shouldn’t matter within marriage since her first and foremost duty is obeying her husband. And that because women of today have begun to harbor beliefs that they can ‘refuse’ sex to their husband, a lot of badmazgi was being created in households which lead to more problems.
And this could be solved if women never said no to their husband so that ‘marital rape’ could never occur. And this line of thought upset a lot of people.
But there were those who were agreed with her
Please Respect Farhat Hashmi…
Islam says women to obey what Husband says and also says husbands to take care of their wives.. so she is actually saying women to stop act like this. https://t.co/Yb3UnUrhA9

Excellent bayaan…we all should think abt it being unbiased for a while..she is very famous and moderate scholar. https://t.co/Xhqenee2L5

She is 100% right.
Why women don't give rights to their husbands and why did they actually get married when they don't want to do that with their husband.
N the hell with the marital rape type thing..it's just a nonsense n illogical https://t.co/4zvL8igtJc

As with most opinions by religious ‘scholars’, there is always a polarization in terms of views
And since she has a lot of followers, a lot of people expressed their concerns about how many women might unknowingly follow her advice and how sad that was.
This woman has perhaps singlehandedly ruined an entire generation of women. Who have then gone on to / are going on to ruin further generations. https://t.co/iu9ZwMtAYP
