Sharia in action: Father lets daughter drown, no ‘strange men’ could touch her

tide2 behead thoseThe notion of honor killing under Islam’s strict Sharia Law may not strike most Westerners as not only an alien concept, but often downright cruel and coldblooded.

Case in point would be the death of a young woman in the Middle East whose father physically stopped rescuers from saving his daughter’s life for fear of “strange men” touching her, thereby dishonoring the family’s good name.

As reported by The Express Tribune/The International New York Times (Pakistan edition) on Aug. 10, 2015, and also by The Australian news service on Aug. 11, 2015, a yet to be publicly identified “tall and strong” Asian expatriate in the Persian Gulf nation of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) actually fought back would-be rescuers from saving his drowning child. In the Middle Eastern press the term “Asian” is often understood to apply to those whose lineage originates from the Indian subcontinent.

Trending: This tweet from anti-gun demagogue David Hogg literally jumps the shark on gun control

As cited, the man took his wife and children to a popular beach in the UAE’s largest city of Dubai for an afternoon of picnicking, swimming and overall family fun. Depending on one’s outlook, the day either ended in shock and horror or in pride and honor.

Deputy Director of Dubai Police’s Search and Rescue Department Lieutenant Colonel Ahmed Burqibah stated to the press, “The kids were swimming in the beach when suddenly, the 20-year-old girl started drowning and screaming for help. Two rescue men were at the beach, and they rushed to help the girl. However, there was one obstacle which prevented them from reaching the girl and helping her. This obstacle was the belief of this man who considered that if these men touched his daughter, then this would dishonor her. It cost him the life of his daughter.”

The Deputy Director added, “The father was a tall and strong man. He started pulling and preventing the rescue men and got violent with them. He told them that he prefers his daughter being dead than being touched by a strange man.”
