German judge rules Koran allows wife abuse

This above is a bizarre news headline but its rocking in Germany.

A German woman judge has refused a Moroccan-born woman permission to file for divorce by interpreting the Koran as allowing husbands to beat their wives. (Yahoo news)

No wonder the Germans are outraged by this. But should not the Muslims also be outraged by this? Because there is not such a thing in Koran. And in an Hadith Prophet Muhammad suggests should you need to beat your wife, use meswak (toothpick). Guess fundamentalists and women judges do not understand the irony of it.

It seems Germany is giving Islam too much importance and Germans are not sure how to tackle these issues.
