Pakistan: A constitutional body has put forth legislation that would legally require men to “lightly beat” their wives should they decline sex

The 160-page draft enumerates several other instances that would call for “limited violence,” such as a wife’s failure to wear clothes to her spouse’s liking; failure to bathe following intercourse or during menstruation; failure to wear a hijab; giving money to someone without permission from her husband and speaking too loudly.
