I’ve received a video about a cleric explaining that it’s perfectly OK for a Muslim to beat his wife, provided it doesn’t cause any bleeding or bruises, and the beating is not on the face or any sensitive parts of the body. I knew of course that such Stone Age people existed (like those on this blog who believe in black magic), but this takes the cake.
Just what is a sensitive part of the body? And how would a man, who is in a fit of anger, beat her in such a way that she’s not hurt? But then I thought there should be some guidelines for Muslim women to beat their husbands too. Although some cases of husband-beating and husband-killing are reported in the press, by and large itâ€™s the men who do the beating.
Should the wife also limit the beating to non-sensitive parts of his body? Or should she hit him on the head with a bottle? Maybe there are some women on this blog who regularly beat their husbands and theyâ€™ll tell us how they do it.
