Did these Muslim men ever consider that the clue in their wives disobedience may lay in the punishment ‘forsake her in the bed’?
Besides, how big are the toothpicks in Saudi Arabia? We still remember fresh and clear the story a Saudi woman told us about some Saudi wives ending up at the end of a rope, attached to a tow hook on the husband’s car. Then they got pulled behind the car in high speed until they die. And no police would show up to stop it or arrest the man after the body was dumped. In fact, the woman claimed she had never heard of a single case where a Saudi man was punished for killing his wife or child. The body would just be left behind until ot eventually got picked up and dumped in the desert.

A Saudi family therapist has released a video on the ‘correct way’ for Muslims to ‘discipline their wives’ – but advised doing so using a toothpick or handkerchief.
Khaled Al-Saqaby released the footage earlier this year and admitted on camera it was a ‘thorny’ issue, adding: ‘Allah willing, we will cross this bridge safely’.
Mr Al-Saqaby urges men not to physically abuse their wives but pursue three courses of action should they need ‘discipline’ – first talk to them, then ‘forsake them in bed’ and finally beat them.
He said wives ‘undoubtedly’ caused problems because many ‘want to live a life of equality with their husbands’, which is a ‘very grave problem’.
