OWC sex guide under review by Home Ministry

By Nurul Ain Mohd Hussain, The Star

PETALING JAYA: The Home Ministry is studying the contents of the controversial sex guide book released by the Obedient Wives Club (OWC) before taking action.

Sources from the Al-Quran Text and Publishing Control division said they were working with the Islamic Development Department (Jakim) in studying the contents of the book, mStar reports.

“We are currently unable to determine the status of the book but work is under way.

“The issue is that this book involves the belief of the al-Arqam group, which is why the cooperation of Jakim is crucial to determine the status of the book,” said the source.

The source was referring to the statement made by the club that it was going ahead with the global launch of Seks Islam, Perangi Yahudi untuk Kembalikan Seks Islam kepada Dunia (“Islamic sex, fighting Jews to return Islamic sex to the world”) despite protests from women’s groups.

The 115-page book had, among others, supposedly encouraged Muslim husbands to have sex simultaneously with their wives.

The OWC was formed by Global Ikhwan Sdn Bhd, an organisation founded by former members of the banned al-Arqam.
