"From the Article:"Last week, though, Human Rights Watch discovered that a revised version of the Shiite Personal Status Law had been quietly put into effect at the end of July — meaning that Shiite men in Afghanistan now have the legal right to starve their wives if their sexual demands are not met and that Shiite women must obtain permission from their husbands to even leave their houses, “except in extreme circumstances.”

If you ask the Afghan males, the response is simple this is our law this is our culture......we are not under the UDHR and we are not violating it anyway. This is cultural relativism. It is also human rights abuse.
