I wrote about this case in Islam Unveiled. It is interesting in light of the way Muslims in the West tend to downplay the existence and implications of Qur’an 4:34.
From Expatica, with thanks to Anthony:
MADRID-The Spanish deputy prime minister has attacked the decision to free a controversial imam who was jailed for writing a book which advised readers how to attack women without leaving any marks.
MarÃa Teresa FernÃ¡ndez de la Vega strongly criticised release of Mohamed Kamal Mostafa, who was freed after only serving 20 days of a 12-month sentence.
In an interview with the programme ‘Ruedo IbÃ©rico’ on Spain’s Antena 3 channel, the deputy prime minister said “this did not help to reinforce the line which Spanish society had adopted to domestic violence: zero tolerance”.
She criticised the decision of the court in Barcelona to release Mostafa on Monday.
Women’s groups have also attacked the early release of the controversial Islamic cleric.
Mostafa, the imam of Fuengirola in Andalusia, was jailed last month for one year.
But he was released and must go on a training course to learn about human rights.
Interesting. I doubt the course will deal with the Islamic roots of Mostafa’s beliefs — and if it doesn’t, what good will it be?
