Ahmad: [My wife] should wait for me until I return home. Then she should see what I need and what I want. The woman, for me, is like a commodity. She should do exactly what I want.
Interviewer: What do you mean by 'commodity'?
Ahmad: She's a commodity, she is nothing. Nothing.
Interviewer: What do you mean?
Ahmad: I married her only so she could fulfill my wishes and serve me. That's it. If I want a bath, she should bathe me. I never bathe on my own.
Interviewer: And if she doesn't want to?
Ahmad: She will do it anyway.
If I tell her to bring me a glass of water, she should go as fast as a bullet and bring it to me. And if I tell her to bring me some food, she will do it.
Interviewer: And if she doesn't?
Ahmad: She will get two or three slaps across her face. Get up and bring your man a glass of water!
Interviewer: And if she doesn't get up?
Ahmad: Then I would pour gasoline all over her and light her up.
A woman's role is to serve her man. Just as he works hard [to make a living], she should work hard for him at home.
