Spousal abuse is universal across all cultures, but only in Islam is it given divine sanction, both in the Qur’an and in Muhammad’s example:
“Men have authority over women because Allah has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because Allah has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them.” — Qur’an 4:34
Muhammad “struck me on the chest which caused me pain, and then said: Did you think that Allah and His Apostle would deal unjustly with you?” — Aisha (Sahih Muslim 2127)
How Islamophobic of the Brits to prosecute this fellow. If they’re serious about welcoming Islam into Britain, they’re going to have to cut this sort of thing out. And of course, anyone who dares whisper the hint of a suggestion that maybe these Muslim refugees are coming with a culture that is radically incompatible with Britain’s is just a greasy Islamophobe, to be dismissed from polite society. Everyone knows that a man who threatens to cut out his wife’s heart because she is “too English” will shortly become a loyal, assimilated, God-save-the-Queen sort of Englishman, dead chuffed to be enjoying some bangers and mash and a pint with the boys down at the pub.
Behar Kasemi told police that women in Kosovo were supposed to ‘obey their husbands and look after the children’ after he was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence.
He spat at magistrates as he was jailed for four weeks for breaching a Domestic Violence Prevention Notice imposed on him by police after he was arrested.
The order, banning him from going back to his marital home, was made last Friday after Kasemi threatened to cut out his wife’s heart.
Detective Constable Rob Sweeney said he was ‘aggressive’ during his interview and had described his wife as having become ‘too English’.
He told officers: “In my country it is for the women to obey their husbands and look after the children.”
Magistrates heard Kasemi breached the order to stay away from his wife within hours of it being imposed.
His terrified wife called police and he was arrested hours after first being released in Swindon, Wilts.
Magistrates heard the original order meant when police released him on bail at 2.20am he had nowhere to go so he went home.
Kasemi spat at the glass in the dock during the hearing before Swindon magistrates as he admitted breaching the order.
Wayne Hardy, defending, said the Kosovan didn’t know what else to do after he was eventually released in the middle of the night….
