Although I try not to stray too far from communications and technology in this blog, I couldn’t help passing on these words of wisdom from Saudi author and cleric, "Dr." Muhammad Al-‘Arifi on the proper methods and techniques on how to beat your children, animals and especially your wife.
According to Al-‘Arifi, “Beating in the face is forbidden, even when it comes to animals," he explained. "Even if you want your camel or donkey to start walking, you are not allowed to beat it in the face. If this is true for animals, it is all the more true when it comes to humans. So beatings should be light and not in the face."
As I read this article on Fox News, I kept waiting for a punch line like April Fools. Sadly there was none.
PS: I have had many comments on this post and the most common theme seems to be it is incredible that this sort of talk and activity is allowed in this day and age. I really think the UN Human Rights Comission should be investigating this incident and put an end to this sort of talk.
