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.
