Maulana Sheerani, the chairman of the council, said:
"These recommendations are according to the Quran and the prophet's teachings."No one can dispute that.When we draft a bill concerning women we have to consider all possible situations."If a woman does not fulfil her responsibilities in marriage first you advise her, if that doesn't work then you consult he relaticves."If that doesn't work, then you desert her in bed. "The Mullah - who says men should "hit her in areas where her skin is not too thick and not too thin" - says that if all these efforts fail, then beating her is the only solution.
"If a woman doesn't respond to advice, doesn't listen to her relatives after you've used all the options - what should be done?"
