Here's a Muslim bride who actually hit back, and boy did she pay a price. All her husband wanted to do was control her by slapping her three times, but when she struck back, hubby went into the kitchen and grabbed a metal bar that he used to hit her on the body and head, which he fractured.
An Egyptian groom who knocked his bride out by fracturing her skull just after their wedding told police he did so at his mother’s request to control his wife.
The unnamed groom said he took his wife to their new home just after wedding and slapped her three times as his mother told him.
“My mother said this would help me control my wife through our marital life.
"She warned me that my brothers are all controlled by their wives because they did not listen to her and hit their brides,” he said, according to Egypt’s 'Al Bawaba News' network.
“After I slapped her, she hit me back. I then went to the kitchen and brought a metal bar, which I used to hit her on the head and body.”
Police arrested the man on charges of causing serious injuries to his wife, who suffered from fractures in her skull and pelvis.
The report said the bride was still unconscious in her wedding dress when her family visited her in hospital in Cairo.
