Khamenei’s tips for happy marriage – back down; twits: women are like flowers

Thursday, 5 September 2013

 ­(FaceBook page“It is not true that the wife should obey the husband in every occasion, no. There’s no such thing in Islam or Sharia law… A couple is about two companions, two friends. Sometimes the husband should back down, sometimes the wife. Sometimes the man should give up on his interests, sometime the woman should give up on hers, so that the two can get along and live a life together”. On Twitter “Islamic teachings say #woman is a flower. How oppressive & evil of a man to treat a flower aggressively, uncaringly& w/out appreciation .#LifeStyle” . The twit drew some sharp comments:

  • Flowers aren’t covered up though
  • “Lawyer Nasrin Sotoudeh and other female human rights defenders in #Iran prisons — Khamenei hypocrite!”… Nasrin Sotoudeh is a LAWYER. She has been jailed for defending #human rights — Khamenei, Supreme Liar!
  • “In every Islamic teaching, men and women are considered as equal”
