‘A husband should beat his wife so long as it does not make her ugly’: PA Mufti

A Palestinian leader has given tips for dealing with a rocky marriage – which includes a husband beating their wife ‘so long as it does not make them ugly’.

Hassan al-Laham, who holds the title of ‘mufti [legal expert] of Gaza’, was speaking on official Palestinian Authority TV.

He detailed what steps a husband ought to take to try and prevent a divorce, which included hitting their wife ‘jokingly’.
