Imams tackle domestic abuse after wife murder
by Catrin Nye
Imams will come together at East London Mosque on Saturday to speak about the issue of domestic abuse with members of the local community.
A panel of male speakers will talk about marriage, about Islam's position on oppression and more unique problems of abuse that can manifest within South Asian communities in the UK.
Organisers say the panel is all male to acknowledge that it is far more often women who are victims and they need to target the male perpetrators to send a message that it is not acceptable.
