A young Muslim man who is also a father of two has taken to Twitter to reveal why he left his marriage.

According to user, @Merbaant, for the duration of the time he spent in his marriage he was abused by his spouse, not just verbally and mentally but physically as well.

He has taken it upon himself to raise awareness about the male victimization of domestic violence especially amongst Muslim men.

He wrote on his page,

As a Muslim man I will probably be of a minority who speak up, nevertheless I will speak up. I left my ex because I was abused for the duration of my marriage. When I say abused I mean verbally, mentally & yes, physically. I will not remain silent for the men who suffer too.
