Escalation Of Domestic Violence In Muslim Community.

This almost taboo issue is being brought out to the open. Violence against women has reached such high levels in the Muslim community that almost 1 in 5 families is adversely affected. Whether it is physical, emotional or sexual abuse, it threatens the very existence of healthy communities.

If women are abused how does a mother then fulfill her major roles as a wife and a mother? Yet Muslims in South Africa have not yet acknowledged this as one of the major social problems them all the time. Research clearly shows that children from abusive homes, themselves become abusive parents.

The high rate of divorce, separation, extra-marital relationships is a daily occurrence in our society. The disruption and breakdown of families leads to a variety of social problems. (Courtesy: JIMASA – Dec. 1996)
