The draft law raises a wide debate among the parliamentary circles, as MP Ammar Tohme said, earlier, the draft domestic violence law contains dangerous implications that threaten serious consequences for the stability of the Iraqi Muslim family and tries to reproduce Western experiences and transfer them to our social reality neglected and ignoring the moral and value foundations upon which our Muslim societies are based .

The draft law provides for the establishment of government shelters, but the law requires a coordination with local women’s rights organizations in the management, training and operation of these centers, and to allow the operation of shelters operated by private bodies for survivors of domestic violence. This paragraph objected to the number of deputies in the National Alliance, which they considered as exposing the victim to a new injustice by depriving him of the home and the atmosphere of care and replacing it with centers where people working as strangers to the victim work.
