If anything, the favourite part of Islam for men is polygamy!
To cash in on the agenda, comes the first of its kind Muslim polygamy matchmaking website that helps men find their second, third or fourth wife. The idea however didn’t sit too well with Pakistanis:
Rest of the world: We need new innovative ideas for startups, something that can benefit society & environment.

I wonder why! I thought women would be jumping at the opportunity to be a 2nd/3rd/4th wife to a guy who probably sucks at being a husband to the first https://t.co/cOMn1sUtmg pic.twitter.com/ecaZY0kUoG

People also took to Twitter to share what the creator of the app was like:
This is guy is full of misogyny and bs. He once said not to marry women with a degree because such women are not submissive and quarrel a lot. This was not just a statement, he made an entire video on it and expectedly, most of his male followers agreed and encouraged. https://t.co/KGh6FAzPsP

And while it did receive a ton of backlash, there were people who didn’t see a problem with it:
Is this not just the Islamically compliant version of “Ashley Madison” or “Seeking Arrangement”?
There’s scores of such relationship sites/apps catering to niche segments of the market.
What’s the issue here? https://t.co/SupiLBGxum

People also came forward to defend the creator:
He's a multi millionaire and providing cheap real estate in dubai,. Training females of remote areas of Pakistan to learn new skills and to earn online. He's a high tax payer entrepreneur of this country but y'all just listen to the "mEaNwHiLe iN pAkiStAn" shit https://t.co/QfvswOBxcQ

People were sharing how their was nothing wrong in polygamy:
There is nothing illegal. Immoral or Haram in having a second marriage and it's not done only for sexual gratification my dad married a war widow after my mom told him to do so. https://t.co/uKkk3VIkCW
