OK for Muslim men to hit therir wives, say Hizb ut-Tahrir women

Muslim men are allowed to hit their wives — but only gently, and not with fists, instead using short sticks and pieces of fabric, according to a new video produced by the Australian women’s branch of radical Islamic political movement Hizb ut-Tahrir.

The video, posted to Facebook by the Women of Hizb ut-Tahrir Australia, features a Muslim woman, who identifies herself as Sydney primary-school teacher Reem Allouche, demonstrating the appropriate ways by which Muslim men may discipline their disobedient wives.

The women on the panel agree that “Islam is not gender-biased”. At the same time, they acknowledge that a Muslim wife is not given the option to hit her husband, or refuse sex, only to “ask one of the family members” for assistance in times of strife.
