‘Lightly Beat’ Wives by Angi Holden

As well as beatings for wives who decline

to have sex with their husbands,

use “limited violence” on spouses

who do not bathe after intercourse

or during menstruation.

 

Guidelines on how to inflict the beatings:

 

Hit her in areas where her skin

is not too thick and not too thin.

Do not use shoes or a broom on the head,

or hit her on the nose or eyes.

Do not break any bones or cut her skin

or leave any marks.

Do not hit her vindictively,

but only for reminding her about her religious duties.

 

If a wife disobeys her husband,

the husband should try to talk to her.

If that doesn’t work, he should sleep separately

and only finally use violence as a last resort.

 

Do not hit her vindictively, but only

for reminding her about her religious duties.

Women should not be subjected to forced marriage,

acid attacks or honor killings.

 

Still, the list of punishable offences goes on:

 

Beatings also should be administered

to any woman who does not wear a hijab,

gives money to other people without her husband’s permission,

and talks loudly so the neighbors can hear.

Women would also be banned from using contraception

without their husband’s permission.

 

But we shouldn’t be worried.

The women of Pakistan

know how to protect themselves.
