  1. So? Disobedient women are to be beaten, says the mullahs. And it's good that he did it in front of the daughter. The daughter will now know not to defy the patriarchal authority of her father.

    Qurtubi says in his Tafsir: "Allah ordered that men begin by admonishing their wives as a first step, then abandonment, then beating if they refused to repent. This is because men are responsible to straighten their wives up. The beating mentioned in this verse has to do with the kind that is not severe and used for discipline. The kind that does not break the bone. However, it is not a crime if it leads to death. In the same manner a disciplinary will beat his son or student to teach him the Quran and manners. "

    Are you honest to your wife or partner (gay)? Why should men have the right to f...k around and expect women to keep their legs closed up?

    Rules or regulations made over thousands of years does not apply in 21st century my friend. Religion or culture, no one has a right to harm the other especially on domestic issues.

    Your kind are the people who are dragging Maldives back to the old stone age. The kind of freaks that give their wives sexually transmitted diseases!

    I think he would be the last holding the beating up ...
