"My Husband Told Me Koran Says It's Okay To Beat Me"


 
Why use a woman who clearly looks Indian?Why not use a woman in hijab or niqab?
A new campaign asking Muslim men and women to speak out against domestic violence is being launched in Scotland.
The Change This campaign wants people to report any violence they have seen or experienced.
Muslim women's charity Amina will use Islamic teachings and an Imam to challenge the misconception that Islam allows violence against women.
The charity said it was aware of many cases where people used their religion in an attempt to justify violence.
As part of the campaign, it will be going out and speaking to men and women about the issue.
