A very sad story, especially a mother-in-law who encourages the beating of other women. I don't know where the nearest branch of POWA is to wherever you are, but it is the organization that should be able mto help, and which should know if there are any other closer organizations to help. She should be able to get legal advice, consider leaving him and taking the children, getting a court order forbiding him from harming, threatening or harassing her, and getting him to pay maintenance for the children's expenses.
Sorry that this anon is being so ignorant, callous and acist : " you cannot change their culture"... " they all do this !" --- another variety of abuse.
