The National Society for Human Rights (NSHR) has sounded an alarm bell about the increasing instances of domestic violence against men being reported in the Kingdom.
An increasing number of men have been complaining about their wives beating them up or pouring boiling oil on them, Al-Watan newspaper reported yesterday.
It just goes to show that domestic violence cuts both ways.
Still, I am quite shocked that the Saudi regime would allow Arab News to publish such an article. Just read the last paragraph and you'll know why.
Violence in the home there is not a surprise. Boys and girls learn from a young age that 'peace' and 'discipline' is maintained through the use of brutal force, both at home and in schools. I am waiting for the day when the Arab News publishes horror stories of young and innocent kids in Arabia who've been thrashed all their lives. It is mostly these kids who grow up and go on to terrorize a new generation.
