4 Palestinian TV issues Quranic guidelines for wife-beating
It’s best not to beat your wife, a recent Palestinian television show said, but if you absolutely have to, then follow the rules in the Quran. During a show last week, a female presenter urged male viewers who had to beat their wives, to do so in accordance with the Quran. While the female presenter did remind viewers there are solutions before giving beatings, the show titled “Talk of the Land” on official Palestinian Authority TV, did not categorically reject violence against women. “To those who use beatings and violence to solve their marital problems: Carefully read the Quranic verse again [Sura 4:34]. There are solutions before giving beatings,” the presenter said, according to a translation provided by Palestinian Media Watch.
