@American Desi: minority affairs are not higher than humane and humanity....secondly, nowhere in the Quran it says you should abuse, physically or psychologically any person, specially your wife....if she is not according to a man's expectations, a wife can be released/divorced from her obligations.....unless of course it seems you still want to back to the times of Jahiliya with your practice of upbraiding a wife

Is not it meddling in minority affairs and suppressing the religious and pious? Is not it sanctioned by the Holy Quaran? We are not talking the innocent wives but the ones which need upbraiding! It will take a long time for "Ummah" to climb out medieval hole.
