The primary school teacher was filmed making her argument at a gathering of hardline group Hizb ut-Tahrir in Sydney.

Reem Allouche spoke to justify a teaching that said husbands can beat disobedient wives.

“What a blessing from Allah, that he said not to take all the steps. It’s one after the other."

Ms Allouche said that beating your wife was a last resort and that other steps can be taken.

“If there is a women on whose part you think there is disobedience, three measures are recommended.

“Advise them first, leave them alone in bed, and hit them.”

Ms Allouche also claimed that hitting wasn’t as violent as people thought and that it “should not cause pain”.

She claims that what should be used to beat a disobedient wife with a ‘siwaak’, a small stick, which the woman chairing the discussion demonstrates on her.

There were moves to ban Hizb ut-Tahrir in Australia in 2007. This was blocked by the attorney general.
