In his reciting of the Qur’an during the night, this man no doubt came across this passage:
“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
And so he knew that in beating his little girl, from whom he feared disobedience, he was simply doing what Allah directed.
How enriched our country is going to be by the mass entrance of men who believe the same things this man believes!
PORT DICKSON: A father, who has been remanded for physically abusing his nine-year-old daughter until she died has admitted to police that he used a belt issued by the military to beat her hours before she died.
Port Dickson OCPD Supt Zainudin Ahmad said the 38-year-old army sergeant also admitted to kicking and stepping on the girl till she urinated.
“The suspect claimed that he had hit the victim with a plastic chair too,” he said, adding that police have since seized the belt and a broken plastic chair from their home in Taman Vista Jaya, near here….
Neighbours, who were shocked by the victim’s death, watched as the police did their work.
When interviewed, one of them said they had no clue that the father could be so brutal.
“He always portrayed a good image. In fact, we could sometimes hear him recite the Quran during the night,” he said on condition of anonymity.
Another neighbour said he often heard the father scolding the victim but the girl never confided in anyone.
“When we asked her about the swellings and bruises, she would say that she fell from her bicycle,” he said.
Another neighbour, who taught the victim and her 11-year-old brother to recite the Quran, said the girl was a fast learner.
“She was supposed to have completed reciting the Quran soon.
“Although she has been with me for two years, she never once confided in me the abuse she endured at home,” she said.
The couple was arrested on Thursday after a post-mortem conducted on the child revealed serious injuries caused by a blunt object.
There were serious injuries to her liver and kidneys and tears in her intestines. Two of her ribs were also fractured….
