JEDDAH: Asma bin Qaddah, the ex-wife of Qatari Sheikh Youssef Qaradawi has denied reports that he had ‘forced her to watch a film of sexual nature’ on the night of their marriage.

The original report, which this newspaper translated, was published in Saudi daily Al-Riyadh. At the time of publishing the translation, the story stated clearly that the claims published in the original report could not be verified and that Qaradawi could not have been reached.

Bin Qaddah explained her position in a television interview with Algerian channel, Annahar.
