Outraged Muslims Protest Ban On Wife Abuse And Child Marriages

The ban violates their Allah-given right to beat women and molest children.

From AsiaNews via Gateway Pundit:

More than 200 male students protested in Kabul yesterday against women's rights, calling for the repeal of a presidential decree on the 'Elimination of Violence Against Women', which they say is un-Islamic.

The decree bans child and forced marriage, makes domestic violence a crime and says that rape victims cannot be prosecuted for adultery. It also outlaws "ba'ad," a traditional practice of exchanging women or girls to settle disputes or debts.

And these protests are by university students - the educated future of Afghanistan.

As a woman, some times I just have to take a moment and thank God I wasn't born in an Islamic country.
