A shocking video that went viral on social media shows Friday sermon on Qatar TV in which the imam claims men have an Islamic right to beat his wives and have no reason to be ashamed of it.
This imam gives a glimpse into the lives of women all over the Arab-Muslim world where Sharia is practiced.
Women are considered Second-class citizens in Saudi Arabia, Iran, Pakistan etc.

In most Islamic countries there are no laws protecting women's rights, or prohibiting child marriage.
Under Sharia law a woman is considered half of a man, because the Qur'an says she has only half of a brain.
According to Islamic tradition, the "honor" of the entire family is measured by women's behavior. Any action that may be perceived as harming the family's honor may cost the woman her life. In other words, a woman is required not only to obey Islam including its strict codes of modesty but also to completely obey her male guardians (husband, father, brother and even uncle).
