Muslim Man Gets Permission From Fatwa Hotline to Hack Ex-Wife’s Facebook Account
Who says Islam has nothing to offer the modern world? In what other religion can you call a hotline to get permission from an Islamic scholar to hack your ex-wife’s Facebook account.
A jealous Egyptian divorcee claimed he hacked his former wife’s Facebook account after receiving permission from the fatwa hotline.
The Egyptian said that more than three months after his divorce, he rang the Awqaf hotline, which offers religious guidance to Muslims, for advice because he suspected his former spouse was in a new relationship.
He told the person on the hotline that he was still married and asked whether it was justifiable for him to log on to her Facebook page to confirm his suspicions.
The divorcee said the scholar he spoke to gave him his consent, although court records do not say whether the Egyptian had actually made the phone call or received any advice. He later hacked into his former wife’s Facebook account, posted messages purporting to be from her and changed the account password.
Fascinatingly enough this fellow called the Fatwa hotline only to lie about his married status to get permission. The thinking here is addled at best. He wanted Islamic sanction, but lied in order to get it.
This is how dysfunctional Islam makes its followers.
