Australia: Muslim Jailed For Beating Wife Says Physical Punishment Of Women Is ‘Good’ In His Culture

When Muslims insist on immigrating to the West it is not enough to simply say that they “respect” civilized society and the rule of law. They also need to obey it. Unfortunately, far too many do not …

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…”

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

By Steve Butcher, The Age – “A Melbourne man who bound, gagged and repeatedly struck his wife with a piece of garden hose – and also shaved off her hair – has voluntarily bought a one-way ticket out of Australia.

Raidh Janabi said he had respect for Australia and its laws, but 27 months since beating her he has declared: ‘I’m not going to stay here anymore. (I’ll) feel better when I go far (away).’

But his departure will be delayed until he serves the next two years in a Victorian prison for recklessly causing serious injury to his now former wife.

Judge Damian Murphy on Tuesday ‘totally condemned’ Janabi’s conduct which he described as designed to humiliate her and, by cutting her hair, intended to ‘restrict her ability to socialise’.

In his sentencing in the County Court, Judge Murphy said he agreed with Janabi, 53, who described his offence as ‘twenty minutes of madness’ and that the attack showed ‘high-handed disregard’ for the integrity [of] her body and the path she had chosen for her  own life.

Fairfax Media has previously reported that he injured his wife of 22 years on February 27, 2011, at their home because he thought she had been unfaithful…

[Prosecutor Kevin Doyle] said he then struck her for 15 minutes with the hose before they left the house for a motel. On her return she went to police the next day…

Judge Murphy told Janabi that ‘in this country’ no-one is entitled to assault their wife. ‘A husband is not entitled to bash his wife,’ he said. ‘This is the law of the land.’ …

Janabi told Judge Murphy how before he came to Australia in 1996 as a political refugee that ‘our culture’ in Iraq was that ‘if a wife cheats and the husband kills her’ and he attends the police or a court ‘they said to him ‘good on you, just go home”.

‘I have respect for Australia, the law of Australia,’ he said, noting he had not once been to a police station and that ‘I’m straight and good’.

‘I love Australia, because Australia saved me,’ he said.

But he had ‘learned a lot’ and ‘paid a lot’ from and since what had happened in February, 2011, and announced he had the one-way ticket out of Australia. ‘I’m not going to stay here anymore,’ he declared…

There was no truth in his claim his wife was having an affair, Mr Doyle submitted.” Read more.
