Saudi Family Therapist Khaled Al-Saqaby Gives Advice on Wife Beating, Says: Women's Desire for Equality Causes Marital Strife

In an online video, Saudi family therapist Khaled Al-Saqaby imparted advice on marital strife. Beating one's wife, said Al-Saqaby, should be intended as a means of discipline, rather than to vent one's anger, and should be carried out not with a rod or a sharp object, but with a tooth-cleaning twig or a handkerchief. "Unfortunately, some wives want to live a life of equality with their husband," he said. "This is a very grave problem." The video was posted on the Internet on February 24, 2016.
