Manama: A man in Saudi Arabia charged with slapping his wife was sentenced to 10 days in prison and 30 lashes.

The court in Al Qateef in the Eastern Province said that the wife could witness the flogging in retribution for the physical pain her husband caused her, Saudi daily Al Sharq reported on Wednesday.

The husband will also have to take part in special sessions on marriage counseling and on how to treat and deal with spouses, the judge ruled.

According to the court documents, the wife, in her 30s, filed the case after her husband slapped her on the face during an argument.

What if he kicked his wife, would they cut his leg off and make him eat it?

you only see woman got killed by her father or husband etc etc etc
but you don't get the news of their punishment
i think it's important to lighten the dark minds :D
that simple act like slap gotten this punishment .. imagin murder " under any circumstances " except self defense of course
what would be punishment for that

Cut him in pieces and have him devoured by lions? No, that's probably not barbaric enough.

Even murderers have mothers.
if their mothers raised them well they won't turn out to be murderers
having a mother does not earn sympathy for criminals .. my opinion

I see the point you're making and you're right that I won't see anyone else posting that story here.  But I also see is a government that's so punitive it contradicts itself.   He might want to get a better legal team because if his wife spent too much money or flirted with another man before he slapped her, he'll be out of jail in no time and she'll be the one behind bars.

Well that is refreshing, I hope it made headline news there too - and that women felt encouraged to stand up for their rights as a result.  That is one brave woman, she could make a difference for many by standing for what is right, good for her.

I disagree. There are situations where one should have the right to slap someone, e.g. self defense. But of course, that is not the case here.
