In a proposed bill that is to be introduced in the Pakistan parliament to allow “Husbands to beat their wife lightly” attracted mucn criticism from all corners around the world. Bible says Love your wife Honour your wife.
Pakistan’s Council of Islamic Idealogy, The Council of Islamic Ideologists, also known as CII, recently proposed a bill to authorise husbands to exercise “limited violence” at home if needed. According to the proposal, “A husband should be allowed to lightly beat his wife if she defies/denies his commands and refuses to dress up as per his desires; turns down demand of intercourse without any religious excuse or does not take bath after intercourse or menstrual periods.”
A proposed set of guidelines for domestic violence is not only hideous but outrageous and shameful too, especially in a country like Pakistan, where women are anyway treated as second-class citizens, where discrimination against women is a daily phenomenon, where women are not only oppressed financially but physically and sexually too. And to add to that, Pakistan is the third-most dangerous country in the world for women to live in according to an article published by The New Economy.
Christians Voice, invites comments and opinions about the proposed bill to beat wives lightly, going aganist the Word of God.
