Pakistan: Isn’t it nice when men get involved in their wives’ fashion choices?

August 27, 2013

Well, no.

A cleric cut his wife into pieces on Wednesday for refusing to wear a veil and sending their children to school, police said….

Ahmad Aziz, father of the deceased Farzana Bibi, 36, said that she married Muhammad Sharif, 42, a resident of Bakkhal Bhir in Mumtazabad Colony.

They had three children.

Aziz said that Sharif led prayers at the neighbourhood mosque and also gave Quran lessons at their home. He said Sharif was short-tempered and would often beat up Farzana Bibi. He had been telling her to cover her face when she left the house.

Aziz said Farzana Bibi wore an abaya (gown), but did not want to cover her face.

He said they often quarreled over the matter.

The Express Tribune

No, ‘short-tempered’ is someone who gets annoyed when dinner is running late. The phrase you are looking for is ‘fanatical psychopath’.
