Default Afghan law allows husbands to starve wives

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/8204207.stm

Quote:
An Afghan bill allowing a husband to starve his wife if she refuses to have sex has been published in the official gazette and become law.

The original bill caused outrage earlier this year, forcing Afghan President Hamid Karzai to withdraw it.

But critics say the amended version of the law remains highly repressive.

They accuse Mr Karzai of selling out Afghan women for the sake of conservative Shia support at next week's presidential election.

The law governs family life for Afghanistan's Shia minority.

The original version obliged Shia women to have sex with their husbands every four days at a minimum, and it effectively condoned rape by removing the need for consent to sex within marriage.

Western leaders and Afghan women's groups were united in condemning an apparent reversal of key freedoms won by women after the fall of the Taliban.

Now an amended version of the same bill has passed quietly into law with the apparent approval of President Karzai.

If that's the case then if a man turns his wife off sexually she should be able to have him beheaded.It's only fair

It's just crazy.You marry a hottie then as soon as the honeymoon is over they start gaining weight and farting in front of you while they pick there noses and say " gee honey, how come we don't have sex anymore?"
And they want to starve the women?

She could "take care of him" and get some nourishment at the same time.

what do you expect .. when you have a president like obama, with his middle name being hussein, stuff like this is going to happen ... first the extravagent spending and now this .. him and karzai are probably high-fiving in a mosque somewhere ..

It's just as cool as some of the atrocities performed by christian missionaries when they were spreading the word.
