Women hit out at Tuan Ibrahim’s statement on polygamy

“WE rather remain single and have a good life than get involved with an irresponsible, useless man.”

This was the response from several women who spoke to The Vibes following the statement from PAS deputy president Datuk Seri Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man that the high number of unmarried women in the country was “cause for concern” and that polygamy was a “way out”.

The PAS lawmaker made this statement in the Dewan Rakyat yesterday, drawing criticism from female MPs, including Hannah Yeoh and Yeo Bee Yin.

“There is nothing wrong with being single. Women these days rather pursue their careers and live a happy, carefree life, indulging in the finer things like dining and travelling.

“We certainly do not feel lonely and there is no reason for us to be the second or third wife to anybody,” said Noraini, 36, who is a lecturer at a private college in Kuala Lumpur.

She said she was offended by Tuan Ibrahim’s statement and described him as “someone who lives in a cave”.
