Pakistani Women Are Not Having It

The recent Islamic committee ruling that Pakistani husbands could beat their wives "lightly" has produced a significant backlash.

I imagine the committee members are surprised.  The committee was just reiterating a perfectly well-established shariah law principle.  Pakistan, 'the land of the pure,' was established just so that people could live authentically Muslim lives.  Why wouldn't women be on board with such an obvious ruling, well within the luminous tradition of their faith?
