Islamic council proposes allowing men to ‘lightly beat’ their wives

Islamic council proposes allowing men to ‘lightly beat’ their wives if they do not ‘dress as he desires’, refuse to have sex, or fail to take a bath after their period 

  • 20-member Council of Islamic Ideology advises Pakistani government 
  • It proposes in a new bill that women can be beaten for various reasons
  • Those include women talking to strangers or failing to wear a hijab

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.

The 20-member council is a constitutional body of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, but can only advise the government rather than make laws.

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.

It suggests that women can be beaten if they refuse to have sex without a religious excuse or fail to bathe after intercourse and periods.

Women should also be beaten for not wearing hijabs, or for speaking so loudly that strangers can hear them, it recommends.
