    but it took 2.9 million complaints and 8 months for them to do anything about it

    A TV channel aimed at Muslims has been censured by the media watchdog Ofcom for allowing its presenters to encourage violence against women and advocate marital rape.
    By Neil Midgley, Assistant Editor (Media) 6:07PM GMT 08 Nov 2010
    In one programme on the Islam Channel, which broadcasts on Sky and Freesat, the presenter of a discussion of sex within marriage said that "it shouldn't be such a big problem where the man feels he has to force himself upon the woman".

    During another programme, a woman phoned in to ask if she had the right to hit a violent husband back. The presenter responded: "In Islam we have no right to hit the woman in a way that damages her eye or damages her tooth or damages her face or makes her ugly. Maximum what you can do, you can see the pen over here, in my hand, this kind of a stick can be used just to make her feel that you are not happy with her."

    In March this year, the channel was the subject of a report by the Quilliam Foundation, a London-based organisation that describes itself as "the world’s first counter-extremism think tank".

    Ofcom subsequently launched an investigation into the channel's programmes, under its rules relating to harm and offence.

    In its decision, the regulator acknowledged that some TV channels "will broadcast programming that will derive from a particular religious or spiritual viewpoint" and that "such advice might cause offence to different sections of the audience".

    However Ofcom went on to say that "the advocacy of any form of violence (however limited)... is not acceptable" and that "it was highly likely that any advocacy and support at all of forced sexual relations would be offensive", and found the Islam Channel in breach of the Broadcasting Code.

    Ofcom said that it would not impose a fine, but that the Islam Channel would be requested to attend a meeting with the regulator to discuss its procedures for ensuring compliance with the Code.

    So in other words.

    Due to public outrage because of this channel, we HAVE to stand up to them, but we aren't really going to do anything about it.

    Dang, things keep getting worse and worse.

    Jack did you hear about Elizabeth Smart (the girl that got kidnapped for 9 months) A police officer approach the girl and her abductors and ask to see her face, but they said that due to religious reasons she had to keep her burka on.

    Oh man, I bet that guy feels lower that _____, ya know what I mean?

    This can't be true. Iran is on the U.N. council for women's rights.

    marital rape? a wife should submit herself to her husband. if the husband wants to have sex she should do as he pleases. i dont see how forcing her to have sex if she didnt want to would be rape, she is obligated under marriage.

    of course muslims are freaked up and dont give a woman any rights so im not advocating that women dont have rights. just that a wife doesnt have the right to say no to her husband
  6. The essence of "rape" at common law was the theft of a woman from her proper guardians (father, brothers, current husband, etc.) to make her one's wife without permission from the proper guardians. Sex was incidental, since once the marriage was consumated, it could not be rescinded, but not of the essence of the offense. And violence didn't matter at all, since the woman lacked the legal power to consent (a concept still preserved in the crime of "statutory rape"). The essence of the offense was the violation of some man's rights with respect to a particular woman. Not every nation and culture is derived from the English common law; Magna Carta is not part of the jurisprudence of every nation. So, while I share the values and views many have expressed here, I think the problem of cultural elitism and nationalistic chauvinism is a bigger problem.
