Authorities investigate Iman preaching wife beating
Authorities are investigating an Iman who preaches at a mosque in canton Lucerne after he allegedly told his congregation it was permitted to beat your wife if she disobeys.
The move follows a newspaper article in the SonntagsZeitung over the weekend.
The 38-year-old religious leader is reported to have made the comments in August at the Dar Asalam Mosque in the town of Kriens. He also called for the imposition of Sharia law.
The man, originally from Iraq, was acquitted of charges which claimed he lent support to Islamic State three years ago.
