OK to hit wife & children, rules UAE apex court
(Times of India, Mumbai Edition, 19th October, Page no. 03)
Dubai: The UAE’s highest judicial body has said that a man can beat his wife and young children as long as it does not leave any marks on them.
The Federal Supreme Court gave the ruling in the case of a man who had left cuts and bruises on his wife and daughter after kicking and slapping them. The court held the man guilty of harming the women, but noted that Islamic codes gave men the permission to “discipline’’ their family members, provided no marks were left.
It also said children who had reached “adulthood’’ must not be hit, Abu Dhabi newspaper The National reported. AGENCIES
