Deputy Speaker of the Indonesian House of Representatives, Sufmi Dasco Ahmad, assessed that the statement by the Deputy Governor of West Java, Uu Ruzhanul Ulum, regarding polygamy as a solution to prevent HIV-AIDS, was inappropriate.
Dasco said that what the law said might be a solution for certain communities, but not in general.
"But most of our people may have a different opinion that the issue of belief in religion should be strengthened, so that the solution that is prohibited by religion should not be implemented," said Dasco at the Senayan Parliament Complex.
That way, Dasco said there was no need for a solution to polygamy and so on.
"In the current atmosphere, do not make controversial statements, which then create dynamics in society," said Dasco, Tuesday (30/8/2022).
It is known, according to the Deputy Governor of West Java, Uu Ruzhanul Ulum, polygamy is a solution to prevent HIV/AIDS transmission among teenagers. A polygamous husband with more than one wife is considered as worship.
The law also explains that polygamy is permissible in Islam and the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad.
The law's statement became controversial. Instead of wanting to prevent free sex among teenagers and prevent husbands from playing with women outside the home, she suggested that.
"Allah will not make a prohibition unless it is violated, it will result in harm, loss, exhaustion, loss," he said.
