In a TV programme which a a law based drama shown on BBC a Muslim was questioned about what he does if his wife displeases him. He said he treats her in accordance with Islamic law.
He was then asked if he meant that “he has a quiet word with her, then if that doesn’t work, withdraws his sexual favours and even if that does not work then gives her a light beating”. He replied “yes”. It is true that this was a fiction but the statement quoted above is the general Muslim belief and public perception of Islam.
It was to correct such ideas that the Promised Messiah arose and so long as such misconceptions exist so will the need for the Ahmadiyya Movement.
