An Islamic 'marriage guide' book has sparked outrage - by advising men on the best ways to beat their wives. A Gift For Muslim Couple tells husbands that they should beat their wives with 'hand or stick or pull her by the ears'.
But the book has faced a backlash from moderate Muslims who claim that it encourages domestic violence. The 160-page book claims to be a 'presentation for newlyweds' or couples who have been together for some years. It is written by Maulavi Ashraf Ali Thanvi, who is understood to be a prominent Islamic scholar.
According to the book's blurb: 'The book... deals with the subject of marriage and after marriage relationship, as well as the various pitfalls of marriage, causes of breakdown and their causes.'
It also claims to give 'real life incidents' and advises on 'different aspects of family life and how to run the institution of marriage successfully'. But within the book's opening pages it states that 'it might be necessary to restrain her with strength or even to threaten her.'
It continues: 'The husband should treat the wife with kindness and love, even if she tends to be stupid and slow sometimes.'
