In Malaysian, sharia law already strips women of many of the most basic protections in society. However, the Obedient Wives’ Club is creating chapters around the country to remind women that if they are beaten or abandoned, it is really their fault. Indeed, vice-president Dr Rohaya Mohamad has publicly told women that it is their duty to service their husbands like “a first-class prostitute.” It is just another insight into the plight of women in some of these Sharia-based systems.
Rohaya instructed women to obey their husbands and that if their husbands cheat, it is because they are not meeting them needs. She explained that “women who fail to fulfil their husband’s needs leave their marriage open to breakdowns. So many men now have girlfriends, mistresses and visit prostitutes.”
The Obedient Wive’s Club has over 1,000 members and chapters in other Islamic nations like Malaysia.
