A man stabbed his wife in the streets and someone shot a video of the reaction as dozens of men rushed to the defense of the man’s wife, shoving the man and throwing rocks at him.
Proof that there’s something in human nature that pushes us to come to the defense of a person in need, especially a woman in need, this display verified that it’s not “OK” to abuse women.
Islamic culture allows, in certain circumstances, a woman to be abused physically by her husband. For example, stoning rituals are permitted in the case of a woman who behaves in a way that contradicts the tenants of Shariah law.
The man, wearing a blue shirt and jeans, was sitting on top of his wife and stabbing her. The crowd, seeing this, forced him off of her. One passerby took a large brick or stone and hit the attacker on his head, according to the U.K. Daily Mail.
A crowd appeared and chased the attacker off and down the street.
The identity of the man attacking his wife in the video is not known, and it is believed that the incident occurred in Egypt, although there is no proof.
It is also not known whether the man started the brutal attack due to something he felt was justified, either by Shariah law or some other reason, or if he was simply violently angry.
The mob didn’t waste any time talking it out, so we may never know.
