Pasha also said that it was unfair to oppose a uniform civil code. “Even the highest court is a bit reluctant to interfere in this. Women should come forward to end this injustice,” he said.
“Personal law is loaded with discrimination. Besides denying equality, it also denies women’s right to property and other issues,” he said.
Sunda and Upasunda loved and cared for each other so much that they were always in each other’s company.
They asked for nothing short of immortality. With that in their kit they could pursue their aim of winning the entire earth, Patala (the World below) and heaven with none to oppose. Brahma asked them to choose something else because immortality was something he could not afford to offer.
They thought for an instant for an alternative that was almost the same. So they said that the only way any one of them would die must be by the other.
Finally, Brahma himself thought of a plan. He called Viswakarma, the specialist builder of heaven to create a damsel of such beauty that all beings would vie with each other and fall at her feet. That was how the celestial damsel, Tilottama, came to being. She was immediately given the task of enticing the two demons.
It is said that even Lord Siva, who spent all his time meditating, found her attraction irresistible. He wanted to look at Tilottama in whichever direction she went with the result that he developed three new faces, now one for each of the four directions. Indra was so interested that he developed a thousand eyes !
Tilottama wasted no time and went to meet Sunda and Upasunda. The demons spotted her, scantily dressed and plucking flowers in the most enchanting manner. The two were mesmerized by her so much that they forgot everything else. One immediately grabbed her left hand and the other , her right. She was being pulled in each direction and soon the Asuras started fighting against each other. The fight became so serious that they ended up being killed by one another.
Narada told the story to give the message that one woman in the company of many men could cause great trouble.

But a King should never enter the abode of another person, for Abhira, the King of the Kottas was killed by a washerman while in the house of another, and in the same way Jayasana the King of the Kashis was slain by the commandment of his cavalry.
Sorry Manfred, but that can't be right. Only the women can give birth to the new warriors and numerically it would make no difference whether she was assisted by a whole, single, husband or a quarter share of one: one woman, one child, per year regardless of the marital arrangments.manfred wrote:So why did Islam allow a man to have 4 wives (and as many sex slaves as he wants)?
It is important for Islam to grow that people have many children. A man with one wife can at best get her pregnant once a year, roughly. That means a man with 4 wives can produce a new warrior for Allah every 3 months. That is the reason.
one woman, one child, per year regardless of the marital arrangments.
Yes indeed, adding to the herd will increase yield whereas sharing out the tribe's women unevenly would not.manfred wrote:Sure one woman, one child per year, but suppose you "collect" some extra women in "military" attacks? Each woman will still only have one kid a year, but if there are more women than men, there can be more kids...
So collecting women isn't all about breeding after all!Last month, when the battle for Mosul began, Islamic State “caliph” Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi reportedly promised four extra Houris (supernatural, celestial women designed for sexual purposes)—atop the other 72 promised by prophet Muhammad—to all jihadis who die (are “martyred”) fighting the infidel forces, according to Arabic media accounts.

Yes, of course, but you need to look at it with the Arab mindset: Women and children are property. They are there for you.
If you, as a man, have 4 wives, you can sire 4 times as many children than with one woman, in the same time frame.
Sure one woman, one child per year, but suppose you "collect" some extra women in "military" attacks? Each woman will still only have one kid a year, but if there are more women than men, there can be more kids...
