“Men have authority over women because Allah has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because Allah has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them.” — Qur’an 4:34
Muhammad “struck me on the chest which caused me pain, and then said: Did you think that Allah and His Apostle would deal unjustly with you?” — Aisha (Sahih Muslim 2127)
Thus to prosecute this heart doctor would be “Islamophobic.”
A top heart doctor who worked at the UN gave his teenage daughter a beating and labelled her a “prostitute” after she disobeyed his orders and went to a Halloween party, a medical tribunal heard on Thursday.
Dr Gohar Rahman, 57, grabbed the youngster by the hair, caned her on the bottom with his walking stick and then rained down punches on her head after he accused her of “bringing shame” on his family.
Police were called in after the daughter sent out a SOS message on social media using a Nintendo DS.
The daughter, then 17, had earlier gone to the party after falsely telling her father she would be home from a friend’s house by 9.30pm.
She also went for a night out in her hometown before sleeping over at the home of a male friend.
But her defiance enraged married father-of-three Rahman, a consultant cardiologist at Wigan Infirmary, who set about his daughter when he and his wife, also a doctor went to collect her the following morning.
As his wife looked on, Rahman shouted “I can’t believe what you have done – sleeping at a boy’s house” and said he no longer “recognised” her as his daughter.
During the assault back home she was was ordered to take off her party dress and put on traditional Islamic clothing instead before being ordered to pray.
Doctors discovered she had bruising to her forehead, lower back left shoulder and left side and three parallel lines on her buttocks where he had hit her with the stick.
A clump of her hair fell out when she was being examined. The girl – who is now 18 – later described her father as “looking like a monster” and described the beating as “awful”….,
