Nothing from the totalitarian left, which never has a word of criticism for these oppressors. Their leaders, such as Linda Sharia Sarsour, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, are militant spokespeople for Islamic law (sharia) and jihad. American “feminist” leadership actually supports these misogynist mullahs. It tells you all you need to know about the left. Obama supported these murderers and gave them billions. And remember: Islam is the religion the left — the supposed feminists of the left, in particular — love to tout. While they claim to stand for women’s rights, this incident in Iran will pass unnoticed by them.
The Iranian Judiciary has called for the Provision of Security for Women Against Violence (PSW) bill to be fundamentally revised, expressing doubts over whether the heavy punishments stipulated in the bill for violations of women’s rights may actually weaken the family structure, i.e. putting a husband in jail for beating his wife.
Gholam-Hossein Mohseni Eje’ii, first deputy minister and spokesman of the Judiciary, said: “The objective of adopting this bill is to fortify the family environment so that women, spouses and others, would feel secure in every respect. Now, the question is whether the articles contained in the PSW bill provide such security or not.”
He argued that Iran’s general policy is “de-imprisonment”, which begs the question why Iranian prisons are between three and four times capacity, and that the bill advocates imprisonment as a punishment for every “minor violation”, a phrase that should be translated to every act of violence against women.
Eje’ii said: The PSW bill contained numerous problems so much that it could not be reformed. The solution is to draft a totally different bill or to reform the existing bill only in collaboration with the government.”
This ridiculous notion was echoed by the Judiciary’s cultural deputy, Hadi Sadeqi, who argued that it was impossible for the PSW bill to support women if it sent their husbands to jail and described the act of imprisoning domestic abusers as “the greatest blow to women and families”.
He said: “When a woman sends her husband to jail, then that man can never be a husband for her again, and the woman must accept the risk of getting divorced in advance.”…
