Malaysia er et af de lande der fremhæves, når der tales islamisk feminisme. Ikke fordi den omtalte familieminister herunder er islamisk fjerdebølge-feminist, det er hun ikke. Hun er valgt for Parti Islam Se-Malaysia, valgt for at varetage Islams parti, ikke kvindernes. En historie fra Mail Online – Outrage as Malaysian female minister advises husbands to beat their ’stubborn’ wives ‘gently’ to discipline them for ‘unruly’ behaviour.

“A Malaysian female minister has sparked outrage after she advised husbands to beat their ’stubborn’ wives ‘gently’ to discipline them for ‘unruly’ behaviour.

Siti Zailah Mohd Yusoff, the deputy minister for women, family and community development, was accused of ‘normalising’ domestic violence by urging men to strike their wives to show how strict he is and ‘how much he wants her to change’.

In a two-minute video posted on Instagram called ‘Mother’s Tips’, the deputy minister firstly advised husbands to ‘discipline’ their ’stubborn’ wives by speaking to them. But if they did not change their behaviour, then they should sleep apart from them for three days.

‘However, if the wife still refuses to take the advice, or change her behaviour after the sleeping separation, then the husbands can try the physical touch approach, by striking her gently, to show his strictness and how much he wants her to change,’ Siti Zailah said in the video.

The deputy minister, who is an MP for the Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party, also urged women to only speak to their husbands if they have permission in order to win over their partners.

‘Speak to your husbands when they are calm, finished eating, have prayed and are relaxed,’ Siti Zailah said. ‘When we want to speak, ask for permission first.’”
