It's Okay for Husbands to Cane Wives

According to the Selangor mufti, Muslims husbands can cane their wives.
In an Utusan Online report on January 26, 2015, Mohd Tamyes Abdul Wahid had said this form of punishment was sanctioned by the religion as a form of “rehabilitation” to “train” wives, on their duties.
If that is not stupid, I don’t know what is. Methinks, an epidemic of epic stupidity is descending upon the country like a plague.
The Women’s Aid Organisation was quick to scold Tamyes in a stinging Facebook post yesterday: “No. A man can’t do that. It is a crime to beat your wife, just read the Domestic Violence Act”.
“How can someone whose job is to advise and guide the Sultan, the state government and society condone domestic violence?"
On second thought, I shouldn't be quick to blame him! He didn’t even try to be clever. He couldn’t because he is nothing more than a simpleton. He behaved his normal self, i.e. stupid.
Anyway, if I ever need a brain transplant, I'd choose his because I would want a brain that has never been used.
On Tuesday, I was at No. 7, Lorong Utara B, off Jalan Utara in Petaling Jaya to attend the Taman Indrahana Toastmasters meeting. I was there as the Toastmaster-of-the-Evening. A decent meeting and I would give it a 7 over 10 score.
