A Saudi Arabian family therapist, in a video broadcast on the country's National television, was shown educating men on how to beat their wife, suggesting that men can use their own methods to beat their wives to extremes.

The video is reported to be approved by the government and granted permission to be shown on national television, Inquisitr reported.

The video features a Saudi family doctor named Khaled Al-Saqaby who is teaching men how to beat their wives properly in case wives disobey their husbands commands.

Al-Saqaby says in his teaching of how to beat wives is not my way or the highway and implied that men can use their own methods to beat their wives to extremes if they’re found disobeying husband’s commands.

He went on to add that women are responsible for domestic violence for being overly ‘stubborn’ up to the point that it provokes violent actions from husbands.

“In addition, sometimes a woman makes a mistake that may lead her husband to beat her. I’m sad to say there are some women who say ‘Go ahead, if you are a real man, beat me’ She provokes them,” he adds in the video.

Al-Shaqby points out those men should not resort to violence as a first option, but should “discipline their wives first” before using violence. He also implied that there is no room for equality in marriage and men should be allowed to run their homes however they please.

“Unfortunately, some wives want to live a life of equality with their husband,” he says, stressing that this was the main reasons a man may beat his wife.

“This is a very grave problem,” he added

Awdnews which also published an article on the controversial video said that after the video was aired in the Middle Eastern kingdom, the Saudi government also released the video in the United States via the Washington DC-based Middle East Media Research Institute, in April 2016.

This video has agitated both the women right and human right groups and Al-Shaqby is receiving a lot of criticism from the west. Matt Agorist of the Free Thought Project bashed the video saying that teaching on the subject should not be taken serious because it is full of his own interpretations, in order to support notorious actions of the ruling class families.

Many women right activist groups have demanded US government to take this video down as it is demeaning for women, but according to amdnews, neither the State Department, which is responsible for international relations for the country, nor any government official from the White House, has commented on the controversial video; FNA reported.
