Oops: Islamic Book Promoting Wife-Beating Receives Endorsement From Canadian Labour Minister

Whether it’s a bill they’re signing or a book they’re endorsing, many politicians often fail to do some basic leg work before running to wield the mighty pen: reading it first. Many have obviously failed to read the Qur’an before endorsing Sharia Law in America and the rise of Islamism, so why should we expect anything different? …

Qur’an Sura 4:34, “Men have authority over women because [Allah] has made the one superior to the other… Good women are obedient… As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them. Then if they obey you, take no further action against them…”

Qur’an Sura 38:44, “And take in your hand a green branch and beat her with it, and do not break your oath …”

Hadith – Abu Dawud, 2142, “The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: A man will not be asked as to why he beat his wife.”

Oh, Canada.

Oh, Canada.

By SHAWN JEFFORDS – “TORONTO — A letter of support from Ontario’s labour minister appears in the latest edition of a book on Islam which condones men physically punishing their wives.

The letter from Liberal Yasir Naqvi appears in the reviews section of Islam: Balancing Life and Beyond.

The book says it is within the tenants of Islam to ‘lightly’ strike your spouse if she exhibits ‘serious moral misconduct.’

Naqvi congratulates author Suhail Kapoor on the release of the new edition.

‘I admire your drive to reach out to the public and promote values of tolerance, understanding and respect,’ Naqvi said in the letter.

Kapoor told QMI Agency he wrote Naqvi asking for a review of his book. When he received a response to his request more than two years ago, he asked permission to reprint it and said it was granted by the Ottawa-Centre MPP’s office.

But Naqvi said Monday he hasn’t read the book and didn’t authorize use of his response.

Naqvi said he has never read Kapoor’s work and has brought forward several private member’s bills to help victims of domestic violence.

‘I strongly condemn violence against women,’ Naqvi said in a statement to QMI Agency. ‘I believe that abuse of any kind is unacceptable and I do not share the views expressed in this book.’

In a chapter, entitled ‘Does Islam Allow Wife Beating?’ Kapoor outlines the circumstances under which it is appropriate for a man to punish his wife using ‘light’ slaps on the wrist with a small wooden stick.

‘That is part of my faith. That is what the Qur’an says…'” Read more.

    If that is your faith that is fine, but in this country it is against our laws so not acceptable here. If you wish to practice this part of your beliefs, you will have to reside in a country where these actions do not contravene the law. Unfortunately for Muslims, that is not here. If they do this here they can and will be charged and imprisoned. Just the same as non Muslims here would be.
