Protecting Women

We have to do a better job of reminding Muslims that Islam is a Religion of Peace:
The Council of Islamic Ideology has proposed allowing a man to 'lightly beat' his wife if she does not 'dress as he desires', refuses to have sex, or fails to take a bath after her period.
In the West, we debate about the level of punishment that's appropriate for men who beat women. In the Islamic world, they debate about the level of beating that's appropriate punishment for women.
Its latest proposals come as part of its own women protection bill, after it rejected Punjab province's controversial Protection of Women against Violence Act, branding it un-Islamic.
Yeah. "Women protection bill". Let's import more of these barbarians.

About one in four Pakistanis do not have a bathroom. In Africa there are far more without. Since most of those don;t have running water either, the Saturday night line up for the washtub is out.I guess those beatings will be around for a very long time.

There is only one question of course. Does Schrodinger keep a cat in a box?
