Saudi Cleric releases video explaining how to properly beat your wife

This week the Herald has been focussing on domestic violence.

Perhaps they should be questioning, as part of that investigation, increased immigrations from adherents of the religion of peace, especially when one of their clerics issues a video explaining the correct way to beat your wife.  

In an online video, Saudi family therapist Khaled Al-Saqaby imparted advice on marital strife. Beating one’s wife, said Al-Saqaby, should be intended as a means of discipline, rather than to vent one’s anger, and should be carried out not with a rod or a sharp object, but with a tooth-cleaning twig or a handkerchief. “Unfortunately, some wives want to live a life of equality with their husband,” he said. “This is a very grave problem.” The video was posted on the Internet on February 24, 2016.

So, according to a Saudi family therapists so long as you don’t get angry when you beat your wife it’s all ok.

Perhaps the domestic campaign could be changed to reflect cultural values. “It’s not OK…if you are angry”.
