UK Judge : Muslim beat your Wife it's in the Koran.

A DIVORCE court judge ruled a man was RIGHT to beat and abuse his wife — because the Muslim holy book allowed it.

The terrified partner, a 26-year-old mum of two, filed for a quickie divorce after her husband hit her and even threatened to kill her.

But the judge in Frankfurt, Germany, rejected her application — quoting a Koran verse which some have controversially interpreted to mean a man can beat his wife if she acts in an “unchaste” fashion.

The woman judge said it was “a religious thing” because both the wife and husband were from Morocco — home to many Muslims.

She added: “The exercise of the right to castigate does not fulfil the hardship criteria defined by German law.”

But the wife’s lawyer, Barbara Becker-Rojczyk filed a claim saying the judge had a conflict of interest and should have stepped down.

She said: “The judge seems to be saying that the right to castigate means a husband can beat his wife.

“Apparently the judge deems it unchaste when my client adapts a Western lifestyle.”

The judge has since been excused from the case.
