This opinion was expressed by ‘Asman Plus” newspaper editor Nazira Begim on her Facebook page. In the request she noted that beautiful, educated women marry foreigners and this must be stopped. Therefore, the journalist has requested that Sooronbai Jeenbekov allows polygamy in the country.
Today, our nation is experiencing degradation. Beautiful, well-educated Kyrgyz women marry foreigners; most of these women have endured difficult times and divorce, and prostitution is also increasing. Only Kyrgyz men can protect Kyrgyz women from such problems. Although polygamy was not the ancient tradition of the Kyrgyz people, many men had tokols since ancient times. Our batyrs were born from our tokols,” Kaktus.media cited from Nazira Begim.
Previously, Begim had already organized various debates on polygamy and stated that she was ready to become a second wife herself. The topic of polygamy in Kyrgyzstan has become vigorously discussed after the details of the personal life of ex-mufti Chubak azhy Zhalilov emerged. He admitted that he had two wives, which caused a stir in society.
I often say that we cannot let our women go abroad to work. We must take care of them ourselves. I did not want to take a second wife, but I decided to become an example for others, so I married a widow who worked as a nanny in Turkey My baibiche (first wife) became upset. She has the right to be upset and jealous,” said Chubak azhy.
Kyrgyzstan human rights activist Aziza Abdirasulova intends to prosecute ex-mufti Chubak azhy Zhalilov for his polygamy. The Criminal Code of the Kyrgyz Republic provides for two years of imprisonment for polygamy.
If the law works the same for everyone and everyone respects the law, only then can we build the rule of law,” commented Abdirasulova.
