Muslim leader Keysar Trad tells Andrew Bolt a husband can beat his wife – but he should only use his fists as ‘a last resort’

Muslim community leader Keysar Trad says an angry husband can beat his wife as ‘a last resort’.

The president of the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils made the remarks after Sky News presenter Andrew Bolt quoted a verse from the Koran, saying: ‘It is permissible for him [the husband] to beat her [the wife] light with his hands.’

The controversial Muslim leader, who has previously called for polygamy in Australia, said he had studied the text with ‘a number of Islamic scholars’ to reach a conclusion about the meaning of the verse.

    Keysar Trad needs a good beating, and so do the idiots who let him into Australia in the first place and the idiots who make excuses for him.

    What do you say to a Moslem woman with two black eyes?
    Do I have to tell you a third time!?

    Any minute now the feminists will chime in with a vigorous condemnation … of Andrew Bolt.

    A knife in the stomach or a ligature around the neck of a muslim woman is fairly last resortish as well.

    I know I have said this before, but really people why the outrage? This is Islam. Importing Islam only to cry outrage after the the fact when Islam is followed is worse than stupid.

    Every MP should have to explain to Canadians what they think of this type of ”teaching’ that violates the Canadian laws. And similar ones…
    Why do we allow anybody to teach to children that their Canadian neighbors are Infidels who deserve to die ?
    Muslims ask to be protected by special privileges…what about the rest of us ?
    What are we going to do about this ?
    Shut up because criticism is a Blasphemy ? No, thank you…
