Muslim convert George Galloway has married his third consecutive muslim wife in a Islamic ceremony shortly after his electoral victory in Bradford. I would assume he is the U.K's first polygamous muslim MP, but due to recent sweeping victories in the U.K by Islamists like Tower Hamlets newest mayor i am not certain. Mr Galloway is currently banned from entering Canada due to his financial and material support for Islamic terrorism. The article inaccurately states that he is a Roman Catholic, this is false, it is illegal to marry a Muslim women in a Islamic ceremony unless you have converted to Islam. Furthermore he made various proclamations over the past few years over his newly found faith, including a famous call for a muslim religious war to a throng of thousands in London. His recent victory in Bradford was made off his appeal to the large Muslim population that he was a "pious muslim" - Golem
After his sensational by-election victory of last week, he might have been expected to pause for breath.Instead, three-times-married ‘Gorgeous George’ Galloway flew to Amsterdam and took a fourth bride – a woman 30 years his junior.
ceremony, in a hotel, happened less than 48 hours after the MP took the
Labour stronghold of Bradford West with an astonishing 10,000-plus
majority for his Respect party.And it was a mere four months since his third wife had given birth to a son – their second.
latest bride of 57-year-old Mr Galloway is anthropologist Putri Gayatri
Pertiwi. At 27 she is two years younger than his first child, Lucy, a
mother of two.The latest
bizarre development in the life of the flamboyant politician was
confirmed yesterday at his bride’s office in Amsterdam, where he was at
her side.The former Miss
Pertiwi, a consultant with a Dutch research firm, had earlier been
listed as his fourth wife on his Wikipedia site. ‘Yes, it is true that
George and I have married,’ she told the Daily Mail. ‘The service was on
Saturday in a hotel in Amsterdam.’ Mr Galloway then took over the phone and added: ‘Well, it looks like you have an old-fashioned scoop on your hands.’
former Labour MP for Glasgow Hillhead went on: ‘Putri is an
anthropologist and child rights specialist and we have known each other
for about six months.‘The
next few months will be interesting because I will be working back in
Westminster as an MP. But we will be moving around between London,
Bradford and Amsterdam.’Last
night Mr Galloway arrived with his bride at his £1.4million house in
Streatham, south London. She smiled and said: ‘Thank you’ when she was
congratulated on the wedding.The fourth Mrs Galloway is a Dutch-born researcher of Indonesian extraction who took a degree in cultural anthropology at the University of Utrecht. She also studied in Amsterdam before taking a masters degree in children’s rights at Amsterdam University.
She is widely travelled and spent 2006 studying at the University of Vermont where she concentrated on anthropology, women’s studies and child development.
She has spent the past three years working with Emic Research in Amsterdam.
is believed she got to know Mr Galloway through his ‘Viva Palestina’
charity and this year accompanied him on a trip to Indonesia.The pair attended a series of
meetings in January including a visit to the offices of the Red
Crescent, where Mr Galloway met three Palestinian doctors receiving
training in Indonesia. Although his bride was born in Holland, her
father is understood still to live and work in Jakarta – the capital
city on the north-west coast of Java.In
recent years Mr Galloway’s new wife has been a voracious blogger and
tweeter. On occasions she has used the name ‘Javaprincess’ as an online
identity while last week she re-tweeted Mr Galloway’s own Twitter
message when he won the Bradford by-election and stated: ‘By the Grace
of God we have won the most sensational victory in British political
history.’Mr Galloway, a cigar-smoking, teetotal Roman Catholic, is now understood to be looking for a constituency base in Bradford.
In 1994, three years after the first
Gulf War, Mr Galloway caused outrage when he was filmed telling Saddam
Hussein: ‘Sir, I salute your courage, your strength, your
indefatigability.’ He was
finally sacked by the Labour Party in 2003 after accusations that he had
called on foreign troops to attack British soldiers in Iraq. After
founding the Respect party in 2005 he won the Bethnal Green and Bow seat
in London’s East End. The
MP invited ridicule in 2006 when he appeared on Celebrity Big Brother
wearing a cat suit and pretended to lick cream from actress Rula
Lenska’s hands. He lost his East London seat in 2010.
rom 1979 to 1999, Mr Galloway was
married to his former teenage sweetheart, Elaine Fyffe. They had a
daughter, Lucy, now 29 with two children of her own. The couple separated in 1987 but did not divorce for a further 12 years.
politician had already taken Dr Amineh Abu-Zayyad, a Palestinian
scientist, as a second wife in a Muslim ceremony in 1994. A year after
his divorce from Elaine in 1999, he married Dr Abu-Zayyad in a civil
ceremony.In 2009 Dr Abu-Zayyad obtained an uncontested divorce citing unreasonable behaviour. In divorce papers she said the marriage had irretrievably broken down because his friendships with other women left her depressed.
this time the Respect MP had already had a son, Zein, with his Lebanese
former researcher, Rima Husseini, whom he had married in a Muslim
ceremony in 2007.
one point Mr Galloway was reported to have split from his third ‘wife’.
But a second son, Faris, arrived in December 2011. It is not clear if or
when the couple were divorced. Last
night Miss Husseini was not prepared to discuss Mr Galloway’s latest
marriage. At her home in North Kensington, West London, she said: ‘I
don’t want to go into what’s happened. ‘I’m sorry. I have two young children and they are all I am concerned with right now.’
