Husband beats wife to death for defying 'orders'

By Samir Salama, Bureau Chief

Abu Dhabi:

A man beat his wife to death because he says she "disobeyed his orders and looked out of the balcony", a police source said.

The incident occurred at midnight on Friday. The Syrian man has been arrested and charged with the 20-year-old woman's murder.

The man, a hairdresser, was returning home from his shop at around 10.30pm, when he saw his second wife, also Syrian, looking out of the balcony of his flat on the first floor.

He got angry, rushed to his flat and started beating her all over her body.

The woman's screams forced his first wife who lives in the same flat, out of bed and she tried to stop him. However, he overpowered her and continued beating his second wife up for half an hour until she fainted.

The 30-year-old man called an ambulance but paramedics found his wife dead.

The accused told police he had not meant to kill her.

"I just wanted to discipline her after she disobeyed my orders. She died while I was hitting her for daring to look out of the balcony," he is said to have told interrogators.

"I used to beat my wives but I never thought that beating would kill any of them. It was just my way of disciplining them," he said.

His first wife told police she had tried hard to stop him but he had beaten her and pushed her away.

"He continued to beat her for almost half an hour before she died," she said.

The accused has been referred to the prosecution on charges of beating his wife to death.

Geez, I wonder if she was looking out of the balcony because HE WAS COMING HOME? What a freaking idiot. Unreal the way women are treated over there.

The only thing surprising about this article is that there are male Syrian hairdressers.

Sometimes, my undying respect for cultural diversity is tested.

That's what you and I would think, but I take it she was forbidden to look outside from the balcony.

Hey, she deserved it. She looked out over the balcony! Just remember, Islam is the religion of peace.

And the feminazis in this country think THEY live in a patriarchal society!!! Funny thing is, I know feminazis who go out with Middle Eastern men and accept being beaten.

These people (if you can call them that) are uncivilized and insane; worse than medieval. Animals would not be so cruel.

I say and continue to say, the followers of the Koran should all be "tango uniform".

You might be correct here. In a gender-segregated culture like the mid-east, men and women would not be allowed to touch each other's hair.

Why would they do that? To show how open minded they are or becuase deep down inside they want a "Take Charge" kinda guy?

I thought it was that there was a male hairdresser who was married. To a woman. Two of them, even.

While I'll agree women have a tough lot in the Muslim world at least the State is not sanctioning this, unless by sanction you mean being charged with murder. Hopefully justice will be served and this POS will be punished

Just doesn't compute based on my upbring. My father always taught me that no man worth his salt hits a woman. Not only that, but they should be honored for being the life-givers and nurturers.
