Angry response to 'wife beating' book
by Kevin Connor
Farzana Baig says she is angry a book has surfaced in Toronto that instructs Muslim men how to make their wives submissive through violence.
The book called A Gift for Muslim Couple - which was being sold at Islamic Books and Souvenirs on Gerrard St. E. - Instructs on "punishing women and the manner to discipline them" by restraints, scoldings and beatings.
"It is not like that in our community. This is upsetting. A wrong thing against our community. My husband doesn't beat me. I haven't heard of this. If it happens it is rare," Baig said.
