Double trouble and strife over alleged fifth wedding

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

A Pakistani polygamist copped a righteous shoeing from two of his three known wives, who alleged that he'd already had a clandestine fourth other half and was planning to tie the knot for a fifth time.

Mian Ishaq of Gujranwala, Punjab province, was at a friend's wedding reception with wife number three, Fauzia, when estranged spouses one and two, Mehvish and Uzma, rolled up backed by "dozens of relatives".

According to the Hindustan Times, the pair set about beating Ishaq with shoes, and police intervention was required to save the hapless hubby from serious damage.

Following a trip to the local cop shop, Uzma insisted to reporters: "We know that he is trying to marry a fifth time and he should be publicly humiliated for his behaviour."

Soap factory owner Ishaq denied the claim, saying he had a mere three missuses "in accordance with Islam". He suggested that Mehvish and Uzma – who've filed for divorce – invented both the mystery fourth wife and the impending fifth nuptials to strengthen their case against him.

Ishaq has presented his marriage certificates to police, who are looking into whether he really has exceeded the local Islamic polygamy limit, although an officer admitted "so far we have no proof against him". ®
