Relgious leader arrested for inciting violence against women

A Religious leader in Terrassa, Catalonia, is being questioned by the Police over claims that he has been encouraging his followers to beat unruly women and inflict Violence against Females who do not follow their husband's orders or strict Islamic law.

The Moroccan Imam, Abdeslam Laaroussi, a Moroccan, allegedly gave followers examples on how to beat women and isolate them, and discouraged men from having sexual relations with them. According to a police statement, he also told followers that it was best to punch women or use a stick on different parts of their bodies so not to break their bones or make them bleed.

The Catalan police force, subpoenaed the man to give a statement, after complaints were filed that he was trying to incite violence against women.

When the Imam refused to give a statement, he was charged after investigators found that his speeches and sermons contained elements that promote discrimination.
