According to Islamic law, a husband may strike his wife for not attempting to make herself beautiful for him, refusing his sexual demands, leaving the house without his permission or neglecting her religious duties.
As you can expect the rest of the non-wife beating World think this is all a bit harsh so in an effort to
deflect criticism, the religious body who run such things in Pakistan have had a think about it and come back with new guidance for husbands with wives who leave the house without his nod to do so, they can still beat their wives but 'lightly' in order to make her comply.
'If she refuses, stop talking to her. Still, if she does not show compliance, stop sharing a bed with her, and if things do not change, get a bit strict' ie 'lightly' hit her.
The advice is part of a 163-point legislation proposed by the Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) which also states that new mothers must breastfeed for two years and only use contraception with the husband’s permission.
Islamic Law, a wife beaters dream religion.
