    There is a video Do Pakistani men condemn or condone wife-beating?

    I will try to make some same type of videos at various locations if possible because if educated public of Pakistan has such mentality on camera what about general public?
    I am not sure whether I will be able to make such video because I live in campus & rarely go home that too just to meet family, so if anyone on DFI can make such video about every location of India that would be good because from that video mentality of Pakistani public is clear because Pakistan is homogenous society.



    ----------------

    I know somewhat how Islamic history & literature on against violence against women have been.
    But I know Indian literature & history on this topic is much much better than today's conditions.
    However their have been cases of kidnap for marriage with her consent
    Rukmini-Krishna, Subhdra-Arjun, Usha-Aniruadha including Sanyogita-Prithviraj.
    Bhishma kidnaped Amba, Ambika & Ambalika to marry them with Vichitravirya.
    Their have been many complecated cases Sita-Ram, Ram killed Tadka, Krishna-Putana & biggest Amba/Shikhandini/Shikhandi-Bhishma.

    Your views are invited.
    Mods may change name of thread if my name is not good.

    After watching this video media group "Dawn" too made a post
    A comprehensive list of things you can 'lightly beat' other than your wife

    Because wife beating is bad, guys. Don't do it.

    [​IMG]Egg beating on the other hand is permissible.


    Old dudes say the darndest things, don't they?

    Yesterday the Council of Islamic Ideology -- a body comprising elderly religious men -- made waves when its proposed ‘model’ women’s protection bill saw the light of day.

    The CII's bill is a response to the Women's Protection Bill passed in the Punjab Assembly last year which, among other things, outlines punishment for those who commit domestic violence. The council clearly felt several clauses in the above bill could be made more perfect.

    How so, you might ask? According to CII logic: reverse them.

    That is how we arrived at the point where the CII's 'ideal' protection for women equals encouraging men to beat their wives. 'Lightly,' of course. And 'if needed.'

    The bill left us scratching our heads. How, we wondered, could 'lightly beating' your wife be considered a good thing? Several hours and a dozen headaches later we gave up trying to mind meld with the CII.

    Instead, to anyone who might be compelled to 'lightly beat' a woman, we offer alternatives. Because wife beating is bad. It is a crime, in fact. Here, have a go at this instead.

    1) An egg
    We understand that very few members of the CII might've seen this roughly spherical object outside its better known form as an omelette. No matter. It's very simple: you break an egg into a bowl, pick up a fork and 'lightly beat' it. We're confident that 'lightly beating' an egg will give you a curious sense of satisfaction.

    2) The end of a ketchup bottle
    This too is permissible. All the better to enjoy your samosa with.

    3) Particularly frozen ice trays
    Now, bear in mind this is only possible if you have not previously expressed a moral or religious objection to keeping a refrigerator in the house.

    4) A dirty carpet
    Actually, you can 'lightly beat' that carpet even if it's clean. Cool with us.

    5) Crumbs from your bed
    That late night snack is a secret between you and bed. Get rid of the evidence.

    6) The podium, if you're a frustrated lawmaker
    The CII probably has experience with this one. Go ahead, lightly beat that desk. Get it all out. Look at how happy it makes them.

    7) A remote control
    Remotes can be cruel, petty creatures. They turn on you when you need them most, like when you need to quickly flip the TV channel to pretend you weren't watching Mathira's latest dance number. It's ok to 'lightly beat' your malfunctioning remote.

    8) It
    As seen in the Micheal Jackson classic.

    Sing along with me as you shake those hips! Beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it...

    9) Yourself
    Important: do this every time you think 'lightly beating' women is a thing.
