RIGHT TO DISCIPLINE
October 22, 2010 § Leave a comment
The court in UAE has declared that a man can exercise his ‘right to discipline’ against his wife and children. I know most of you must be thinking ‘what is the right to discipline’!
Right to Discipline- A man can beat his wife and children as long as he leaves no ‘visible’ marks on their body. Children who have attained ‘adulthood’ or ‘puberty’ cannot be struck (does it make a difference?)
I was shocked and this lead me to read the laws and rules related to the culture and religion.
Few steps mention to control the ‘rebellious’ wife:
I do respect the culture and religion of every country but what i cannot understand is that in what way are women inferior than men?Why is that a woman who asks questions or demands her rights is considered ‘rebellious’? Is education the only way to free women?
