A man with ideological convictions more valuable to him than the life of his own children has allowed his daughter to die in front of her family, rather than let lifeguards save her because they were “strange men”.
Bringing to light the stark reality of what “death before dishonor” means to religious nutballs, an article on the Emirates 24/7 news website describes the horrific manner in which the scenario unfolded on a beach in Dubai, where the unidentified man, together with his wife and children, were visiting the beach for a picnic.
According to Lt. Col. Ahmed Burqibah, Deputy Director of Dubai Police’s Search and Rescue Department, “the kids were swimming in the beach when suddenly, the 20 year old girl started drowning and screaming for help.”
Lifeguards sprang into action, but were prevented from rescuing the girl by her father, whom Lt. Col Burqibah described as a “tall and strong man”, who became violent towards the lifeguards telling them that he “prefers his daughter dead than being touched by a strange man.”
Well, that’s exactly what he got. His wife got a dead daughter, the other children got a dead sister, and they’ll probably lose their fucktard prick of a father also because he’s been arrested and faces prosecution in Dubai. Some might say that they will be well shot of this monstrosity of a human being, however it must be also remembered that in such bigoted, idiotic, repressively religious cultures, women are forbidden from working in case strange men cast their eyes upon them, so the poor family stand to lose not only their daughter, but their livelihoods also.
All because an invisible man in the sky said that death is better than dishonor.
