Muslim father rapes his daughter as punishment for her ‘Western lifestyle’
A Muslim man in Norway has been detained for raping his daughter as a punishment after she became ‘too Western’.
The man, in his 40s has been charged with rape and incest after he attacked his daughter in their family home in the city of Fredrikstad.
Police prosecutors have said the daughter told officers she was raped by her father as a punishment for living a Western lifestyle.
Police lawyer Anette Sogn told Fredrikstad24: ‘The father has been angry because his daughter did not follow his (Islamic) way of life, she explained in questioning.’
Following the attack, the daughter, who is in her 20s, ran out of the house and told a passing postman what had happened, who then went to the police.
The dad, who says his daughter planned setting him up, was arrested after the postman alerted police.
He has reportedly claimed that he doesn’t understand why he has been charged and said he was shocked by DNA results that were found in her underwear and intimate parts.
He said he sat on the victim’s bed, and claims that is why his DNA showed up.
If convicted, he is likely to face ten years in prison due to the gravity of the attack on the victim in her own home.
His daughter is now receiving psychiatric help following the ordeal.
