Father kills his daughter to appease God



Web Desk: A 26-year-old father, Nawab Ali Qureshi from India, cut his four-year old daughter’s throat as a sacrificial offering to God during Ramadan.

On Friday, he murdered his young daughter Rizwana after reciting Quran verses. He then claimed police that Satan made him slit her throat.

According to Indian’s Jodhpur police, he initially denied killing his daughter and instead, told his family a cat could have been responsible for her death. But later on, he admitted slaying Rizwana after his wife filed a murder report.

Qureshi said, ‘I am a devout Muslim and love my daughter more than my life. For several days she was at her grandmother’s place and returned on Thursday. I took her to the marketplace and bought sweetmeats and fruits. In the night I took her to the courtyard downstairs, recited a kalma, killer her and then went back to sleep upstairs.’

Reportedly, he said, ‘I had to offer my most prized possession to Allah.’

Qureshi added the devil had entered him.
