Father in Dubai stops rescue of drowning daughter to save her from ‘dishonour’

The father had taken his wife and kids to the beach for a picnic, Lieutenant Colonel Ahmed Burqibah, deputy director of Dubai police's search and rescue department, told Emirates 24/7. The children were swimming when the daughter got into trouble and screaming for help.

When two lifeguards went to help the woman, her father, described as a “tall and strong” Asian man, "started pulling and preventing the rescue men and got violent with them", said Colonel Burqibah.

“He told them that he prefers his daughter being dead than being touched by a strange man” believing that “if these men touched his daughter, then this would dishonour her”, Colonel Burqibah told the website.

He said he believed the woman probably would have lived if the father had not intervened.

8. Isn't It Amazing

The predictable way liberals react to stories of Muslim atrocities??

"Yeah, well, Christians are way worse! So there!"

Like Pavlov's dog.

5. This is a great opportunity for the fems on this board to step up and tell us how they feel.

Please explain to all of us how you view this situation and the belief system that led up to this child's death.

Please have the courage to explain what you are going to do to protest actions like this and to bring attention to what happened to this young lady.

The silence is amazing...

9. I am very vocal about the horrindous way Islam treats women.

And every time I point out the utter hypocrisy of the American feminists for failing to make any statement at all, they alert on me.

This is the hypocrites getting even with me for pointing out their very obvious hypocracy.

Islam, the religion, the culture, and Islamic theocracis are responsible for more abuse toward women then any other country, belief system, or culture on this earth.

This truth is what the American feminists are to CS to say.

The left wing feminists have a huge conflict. They either toe the left wing PC line or speak out about the horiffic treatment of women by Islam.

Their convictions evaporate and the march to the left wing drumbeat in lockstep.

14. "The enemy of my enemy is my friend"

And for liberals, muslims fit the bill in that regard.

Big fat stupid lie. But do enjoy your fake outrage. It fits the right wing 'drumbeat in lockstep.'

Personally I detest all religion. It's fiction, used to rationalize hatred of 'others'

10. Once again, A CERTAIN religion is used to rationalize stupid and or criminal behavior

Fixed that for ya. I searched Google extensively to try and find where a father allowed his little girl to drown in the name of Buddhism, Taoism, Shintoism, etc, and couldn't find a single example. Therefore, it's unfair to broadbrush all religion with the same wide stroke. That's not very progressive (in the technical sense), is it?

Do you think that maybe.....just maybe, there might be something inherently wrong with this particular religion, or more specifically, this particular interpretation (I'd bet a metric ton of humus this shitbird is a Wahhabist) of that religion?

It's okay to point it out. I promise you, no one will question your progressive credentials if you point out that a Wahhabist in Saudi Arabia is far, far more likely to "honor kill" his daughter than some poor Southern white Baptist in West Virginia who isn't even familiar with the concept in the first place and whom you're angry at just because he doesn't vote the way you think he should.

11. Lol. Yeah. History isn't littered with Buddhist monks slaying others in the streets? Try reading

 

History. Same with Christian killers of Jews and other religions. Just in the 20th century.

13. Sorry , but this is a news article about something very specific.

Please find an example of a Buddhist father allowing his daughter to die to protect her "honor" and post it here. Do that, or you've got nothing to base your one-size-fits-all argument against all religion save for your own personal prejudices and bigotry.

You didn't fix a damn thing

There have been plenty of Americans murdered, harassed and denied equality because of stupid religion

They are all asinine and used as an excuse to rationalize hatred of 'others'

12. Not much different than idiot religious beliefs that let a woman die.

Rather than have a life saving abortion. We have several such imbeciles running for President.
