Book tells Muslim men how to beat and control their wives

Dunno why they would need this. They already have the koran which says the same thing.

A local bookstore has “sold out” of a controversial marriage guide that advises Muslim men on how to beat their wives.

The 160-page book, published by Idara Impex in New Delhi, India, is written by Hazrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi, who’s described in the book’s foreword as a “prolific writer on almost every topic of Islamic learning.”

The store’s manager, who didn’t give his name, said the book had been sold out for some time, and the store’s owner, whom the manager identified as Shamim Ahmad, refused to comment for the story.

It wasn’t clear whether the shop has ordered more copies of the book, but it’s available at online Islamic bookstores and even through eBay.

In the book’s opening pages, it is written that “it might be necessary to restrain her with strength or even to threaten her.”

Later, its author advises that “the husband should treat the wife with kindness and love, even if she tends to be stupid and slow sometimes.”

Page 45 contains the rights of the husband, which include his wife’s inability to leave “his house without his permission,” and that his wife must “fulfil his desires” and “not allow herself to be untidy … but should beautify herself for him … ”

  1. I’m patiently waiting to hear from the ‘Canadian Women’s Group – feminists’ on this . . .
    It’s a good thing I chose not to hold my breath . . .

  2. You know another thing that is interesting about this article. The person who sent it to me, Grace, told me the following:

    “Both the Ottawa and Toronto Sun have closed down their comment sections on this story. Earlier, the Ottawa Sun had 30 comments and the Toronto Sun had 66, but now access for reader input has been cut off. That in and of itself, is a story. I sent them an e-mail asking why? I have yet to receive a reply. I’ll let you know IF and when I get one.”

    Now she doesn’t just mean, no more comments allowed. She means the ones that were there are all removed. No access to them. How odd is that?
