Islamic group blasts leader for speaking publicly about his desire for a second wife - but at the same time claim that polygamy 'is a NON ISSUE'

An Australian Muslim leader is under fire from one of the most senior members of his own organisation - after he confessed to wooing women with 'love poetry' in an attempt to marry a second wife.

Keysar Trad, the president of the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils (AFIC), this week spoke about his longing for another bride. He is searching for a second bride with the blessing of his wife of 30 years and mother of his nine children.
