Bizarre new Islamic law floating through Pakistani court

PAKISTAN — In a not so subtle move, clerks in Pakistan have sought to make it legal for men to beat their wives if they’re refused sexual intercourse.  The 160-page legislation, per reports, calls for “lightly beating” someone’s wive if they refuse to sexually satisfy their husband.

Other reasons a woman may now face beating under the proposed law:

  • A wife’s failure to wear clothes to her spouse’s liking
  • Failure to bathe following intercourse or during menstruation
  • Failure to wear a hijab
  • Giving money to someone without permission from her husband
  • Speaking too loudly
