A Muslim imam who lectures on non-violence is facing assault charges in Germany today after it was revealed he beat his wife bloody and broke her bones when she said she wanted to live a more "western" lifestyle.
The Daily Mail reports:
Sheikh Abu Adam, 40, is now on remand in Munich while his wife, 31, is being guarded by police.
She was allegedly assaulted so badly that she suffered a broken nose and shoulder and numerous cuts and bruises.
Media reports claimed the woman, who has borne one of his ten children, wanted to live a more 'western' lifestyle and was allegedly attacked after telling her husband.
The police said they received a call from a lawyer hired by the victim.
Adam is alleged to have shouted a verse from the Koran at his wife as he beat her.
The line said: 'Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because God has guarded them.
'As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them.'
According to the Daily Mail, Adam also advises the German government on interfaith issues and gave a lecture on non-violence as recently as a week ago. He faces jail time if convicted.
