UK: Muslim mom beat 10-year old daughter for 45-minutes for not reading enough Koran
Islam, disturbing the peace wherever it goes. via Muslim woman who subjected girl, 10, to 45-minute beating with steel ladle for not reading enough of the Koran is jailed | Mail Online.
A Muslim woman who repeatedly beat a ten-year-old girl with a steel ladle for not reading enough verses of the Koran was jailed yesterday.
Asia Parveen, who was five months pregnant at the time, left the child with 57 injuries and later claimed her violent outburst was prompted by her hormones.
The girl managed to escape when Parveen ran to her kitchen for a knife, and was found alone at a bus stop in the early hours of the morning.
Parveen, 31, had argued with the girl on August 15 last year, Snaresbrook Crown Court in London heard.
She accused the girl of lying about how many verses of the Koran she had read while praying.
She then hit the girl with the ten- inch ladle for 45 minutes and forced her to stand with her arms outstretched for four hours.
The girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, escaped when Parveen went to fetch a knife which she brandished, saying she was going to kill her.
She was found four hours later, alone and in the cold at the bus stop, by police.
Doctors identified 57 injuries, including marks on her arms, legs, elbows and head, when she was examined at hospital.
Parveen, a former professional traditional dancer who had toured worldwide, had been fasting for the Muslim holy month of Ramadan before the attack.
She was considered to be ‘immoral’ by some in the community in Pakistan for her former dancing career and so wanted the girl to take her religious duties seriously.
Parveen, a mother of three, accepted causing some of the girl’s injuries with the ladle but claimed that others must have happened when the girl ‘fell over’.
Tom Nicholson, prosecuting, said: ‘The girl was praying from the Koran and Mrs Parveen accused her of lying about how many of the verses she had read.
‘She was ten at the time. Mrs Parveen took a metal spoon about ten inches in size and hit the child with it repeatedly, causing extensive bruising over both arms, her legs and head.
‘Mrs Parveen said she was going to kill the girl and ran to get a knife from the kitchen.
‘The girl had no alternative but to leave at around 10pm.’
She didn’t “leave.” She fled for her LIFE before being butchered Islamic honor style.
