Survey of Youth Affairs & Malaysia Refuse Polygamy

KUALA LUMPUR - Islamic view of man fond of polygamy in the Western eye, can be broken with the results of a survey in Indonesia and Malaysia recently. Youth in both neighboring countries is partly rejected polygamy.

Through a survey conducted by two cultural organizations from Germany found that 86 percent of the 1496 Indonesian citizens reject polygamy. While 73 percent of the 1060 citizens of Malaysia also rejected marriage between a man with more than one woman.

This survey was conducted to Muslim youth respondents aged between 15 to 25 years in Indonesia and Malaysia.

The results of this survey indicate that the traditional view in a country where the majority population are Muslims has changed. "The views of youth in both countries, polygamy is not currently seen as the rule of Islam," said researcher Ibrahim LEO as quoted by the Associated Press on Tuesday (07/12/2011).

LEO stated the survey was conducted with a 3.1 percent margin of error seeking in Malaysia. While in Indonesia to 2.6 percent.

Polygamy was considered normal by the Muslims, as long as done with the conditions stipulated by the rules of Islam. However, today many who considered polygamy as a way of satisfying napsu alone.

This assumption is widespread in western countries. They look at polygamy as harassment against women.
