Canadian Imam Says Women Should Get Husband’s Permission Before Speaking

Meet Maulana Syed Mohammad Zaki Baqri (you knew there was going to be a Mohammed in there somewhere). According to the Council of Islamic Guidance, he’s been providing “aggressive and concerned” leadership and guidance to Toronto Shiites since 1979.


That, incidentally, happens to be the date of the Islamic Revolution in Iran.

Maulana Syed Mohammad Zaki Baqri’s turn-ons include long walks on the beach with Ayatollahs, the Ayatollah Khomeini and shouting “Death to Zionism” during speeches.

His turn-offs include women talking without permission, women leaving the house without permission and joining the Israeli army.

From his web site, he offers the following advice on the role of women in marriage from his handy guide – “Marriage is a gift of God” by Maulana Mohammad Syed Zaki Baqri:

“She needs to have the permission of her husband for a number of things, including, leaving the home…communicating and speaking with others…”

That sounds like a real gift from Allah.

Fortunately with immigration, Canadians and Westerners don’t need to visit Iran or Saudi Arabia to experience this enlightened attitude toward women speaking or leaving the house.

They can just walk down the block.
