Not Beating Your Wife Is Islamophobic

by | 24th, March 2009

YOU will recall how Muzzammil Hassan, founder of an Islamic television station in upstate New York aimed at countering Muslim stereotypes, confessed to beheading his wife, one (and a bit) Aasiya Hassan.

Now Patrick Poole casts an eye on developments, and the role of one Mauri Saalakhan:

It’s not wife beating, dummy. It’s wife training:

As observed earlier this month by the Salafi Burnout blog, the individual chosen by the Muslim Alliance in North America (MANA) to respond to the “moderate” Buffalo beheading tragedy is Mauri Saalakhan, who reportedly has admitted to beating his own wife…

Several days following the initial post concerning Saalakhan’s abuse of his wife, one of his supporters posted a purported response from Saalakhan defending his conduct, which was then included in a separate post on the Salafi Burnout blog:

The allegations — which I have since discovered are now on a number of extremely hostile anti-Islam, anti-Muslim websites — are UNTRUE. I have never beaten up any woman in my life. There have been a number of occasions in the PAST (not the present), and few in number, when I have struck a woman with an open hand — an admission that I am not proud of — but I have never beaten a woman! And on the few occasions when this did happen — with three (I can count them) exceptions — it was in response to being struck first.

The sooner women take over the world, the better…

File under: beyond parody.
