[quote=] Muslim teacher demonstrates how a man should BEAT women with a stick and says that husband’s violence towards his wife is a 'beautiful blessing’
Muslim men are allowed to hit their wives if they disobey them and domestic violence is a ‘beautiful blessing’, according to the women’s branch of a radical Islamic group.
Sydney primary school teacher Reem Allouche told the women’s arm of hardline political group Hizb ut-Tahrir that men are permitted to hit women with sticks.
During the 30-minute discussion at a meeting in Sydney’s west, Ms Allouche and fellow panellist Atika Latifi - who are both wearing headscarves - describe how beating women is a ‘symbolic act’.
At one point they even demonstrated how to use a small stick called a ‘sivaak’ to hit ‘disobedient’ women.
In a video of the debate, which has been posted on Facebook, Ms Allouche says men should use the sivaak to punish their wives.
She then uses one of the sticks to hit Ms Latifi while the pair laugh.
Other permissible methods to punish women involve using a twisted scarf or piece of fabric, the women say.
Ms Allouche says the act is ‘symbolic’, while Ms Latifi claims it’s ‘a beautiful blessing’.
The pair agree that men have the right to beat their wives because husbands take a ‘leadership’ position within the family.
‘It goes hand in hand that he would have the right to undertake disciplinary measures,’ Ms Allouche says.
These are teachers, lecturers, who teach our children.
Wonder what our “Women libs” will say about this.
