An Emirati woman in Ras Al Khaimah fell out with her husband because of what she said was a drastic change in his behaviour, believing he was gripped by magic.
After the husband refused a request by his wife and her family to visit a magician, she reported him to the Family Guidance and Reconciliation Centre in the hope they would convince him to get treatment.
“She told us that her husband is gripped by magic after noticing a big change in his behaviour and treatment,” the centre’s director Jassim Al Makki said.
“We summoned the husband and talked to him. But we found that he is quite normal and has no social or psychological problems.
“We then brought the two families together and succeeded in reconciling them. The root cause of the problem is lack of awareness,” he told Emarat Al Youm daily.
