A Muslim man who claimed his religion entitled him to hit his wife has been given a community order.
Shamshu Miah, 58, of Alexandra Road, Llandudno, struck his wife three times after she did not get him a cigarette.
He later told police his religion allowed him to hit his wife if she did not do as she was told.
Yesterday Llandudno magistrates court heard his wife continued to support Miah, who suffered from bipolar episodes.
The court heard she wanted him to move back to the family home.
Miah was ordered to undertake community mental health treatment. He has to pay £85 costs.
