TORONTO -- A letter of support from Ontario's labour minister appears in the latest edition of a book on Islam which condones men physically punishing their wives.
The letter from Yasir Naqvi appears in the reviews section of Islam: Balancing Life and Beyond.
The book says it is within the tenants of Islam to "lightly" strike your spouse if she exhibits "serious moral misconduct."
Naqvi congratulates author Suhail Kapoor on the release of the new edition.
