Debate on the Domestic Violence Act (Amendments) 2017 bill Edit

On July 15, 2017 during the debate tabling on the Domestic Violence Act (Amendments) 2017 bill in the Dewan Rakyat, Jusoh remarked that wives withholding sex from their husbands or the right to marry another woman should be considered a Sharia-related crime or marital offence which is brought by emotional and psychological abuse.[3]

His statement sparked criticism from Women's Aid Organisation and many politicians; however Muslim Welfare Organisation Malaysia agreed with Jusoh's remarks.[4][3]
