The Obedient Wives Club: Activity Report, 1st Quarter, 2011

There are many out there like Anas who have found fulfilment and contentment in the stance taken by Global Ikhsan, a group which also found the Polygamy Club.

Anas married the love of her life in February this year. Her husband, Yernest is a freelance creative writer and she works at a private college as an education counsellor. As she makes a steady income monthly, Yernest earns as he sees fit, in spasms, much like whooping cough. One morning, in the third month of wedded bliss, Yernest was up, earnestly hunting around the hall, trying to locate that fine ink pen he had been using to scribble last night. Hearing Anas in the kitchen, he yelled in her general direction, audible to such a decibel that the neighbours woke up and the lone crow on the Keruing tree immediately ceased its forlorn cawing. “Do you know where my pen..is?” Anas had no clue as to where it was. As a result, Yernest became very angry. He threatened to utter the talak if Anas did not seek therapy immediately. Thankfully at work, Anas tuned in to the radio and heard of the Obedient Wives Club, the launch of which she attended on the 4th of June.

There are many out there like Anas who have found fulfilment and contentment in the stance taken by Global Ikhsan, a group which also found the Polygamy Club. At group therapy sessions, members exchange testimonies and jokes to encourage each other in their endeavour to be good wives. One such joke which became a highlight at each session was the cannibal joke. “Said one female cannibal to another, “I don’t know what to make of my husband these days. Said the second cannibal, “How about curry?””. This joke was said to ignite the passion to perform the domestic duty of cooking (for) the husband.

Mathematics lessons were also introduced to educate members on the importance of certain numbers over others. Emphasis was placed especially on the number 69. Efforts were made to broadcast their teachings by training and raising up missionaries amongst the members and encouraging them to take up missionary positions within the masses.

Members were also trained on the finer points of culture, arts and drama. Pointers were given when members had to choose between feature documentaries or stage plays. Plays were preferred because of their predictably short plots and simple props required. Members were encouraged to engage in three to four-plays daily.

Vocational training was also provided to members who wanted to gain skills in various industries. According to Jobstreet, the Employee Confidence Index for the month of June 2011 stands at 51.9. This simply means that it is now an employees’ market. Not wanting to be left out, the Obedient Wives Club wanted to bank in on this opportunity and tap the skills of its members. ¬†However, sadly, the desire to see this endeavour come to fruition died when members failed to secure jobs. It was a low blow to members as they wanted these jobs badly, but they learnt that as women, they cannot secure the jobs, but must learn how to give those jobs, low-blow or otherwise.

The Obedient Wives Club seems to be serving its purpose in educating women to be obedient. Their core values are strong, as how “bed” is an integral part of “Obedient”.

Esther Anandaraj read the headlines and wondered why the Obedient Wives Club garnered publicity. She wonders whether activities conducted in the forums organised by the Club will be reported in the media. She feels the need to state that the above is a parody and not the gospel truth. For the gospel truth, please tune in to Radio Camping on the rapture.

    Cass, that is an oxymoronnica. Read inbetween the line and perhaps you will laughing by mid night tomorrow.

  4. An obedient wife commands shit. Even Kate Middleton and Prince William took out the word ‘Obey’ in their wedding vows. Which world do you come from?

    wah, it's almost like you were at the meeting ah! Nice one ;)

    The stupidity that underlies the Obedient Wives Club is everybody's business because they send out the msg that domestic abuse is the woman's fault. With everything else, I can just write them off as idiots with no self-esteem. But when they send out a msg like that, they become slightly dangerous idiots. And unfortunately, they're procreating. *sigh*

    @Amirha.

    Funny how you should put it that way.

    I guess it's none of your bloody business if you hear of your neighbor's wife/kids being severely punished because the approach used "is not meant" for you eh?

    Perhaps when shit hits the fan (and the news), then only would you agree that your neighbor went too far.

    What you fail to see is that, this isn't about being judgmental or secularism. It's about standing up for common sense and the right values.

    You don't need an edict to guide for that, do you now?

  11. Like the RLD going or smoking or drinking bunch among non-Muslims, OWC so long as consensual is not an issue. Wemust however END the APARTHEID and denounce bad laws and amend outdated Constitutional clauses. Bar Council could pass a no-confidence motion against the judiciary and AMEND all APRTHEID clauses in the Constitution.

    REMINDER

    1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism

    2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy.

    3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution.

    If BN will effect the above IMMEDIATELY, I would not mind voting any no-plutocrats and non-nepotists in BN into power again. Otherwise just forget about BN.

    There are limit to your gospel.

    OWC is not meant for you, so be it.

    None of your bloody business to comment on OWC events or doing.

    Let them be.
