Saudi Arabia: Hit Your Wife If She Spends Money

by | 10th, May 2009

wife-beater-lashedIN Saudi Arabia, Old Mr Anorak is taking notes at a seminar on domestic violence, leaning from Jeddah judge Hamad al-Razine that it is permissible for a man to hit his wife for “lavish spending”.

As Arab News transcribes:

“If a person gives 1200 riyals ($US320) to his wife and she spends 900 riyals to purchase an abaya from a brand shop, and if her husband slaps her on the face as a reaction to her action, she deserves that punishment.”

Maybe she has the rolled up wad of 300 riyals stuffed down the back of her knickers or inside the cheeks of her yashmack?

But this will not do.

In the seminar on domestic violence – which turns out to a masterclass full of tips and how tos – the woman must spend the full whack to get the full whack…

And if she has any change, she should keep it in a rolled up sock…
