A Muslim man living in Norway was arrested after his daughter told authorities he had raped her as a punishment for becoming “too Western,” as the Daily Mail put it.
The man was arrested and charged with rape and incest, the Daily Mail reported.
“Police prosecutors have said the daughter told officers she was raped by her father as a punishment for living a Western lifestyle.
Both the father and daughter are of a non-European background.”
A lawyer told the local news, Fredrickstad24, the father and daughter had been arguing in the lead-up to the alleged rape.
The statement of the lawyer, according to the Daily Mail:
“‘The father has been angry because his daughter did not follow his (Islamic) way of life, she explained in questioning.'”
The daughter, in her 20s, fled the home after the incident and told a postal worker her father, in his 40s, had raped her. That postal worker then reported the incident to police, the newspaper reported.
Apparently, DNA testing sides with the daughter’s explanation of events.
The Daily Mail continues:
“The father has reportedly claimed that he does not understand why he has been charged with the crimes and said he was shocked by police DNA results.
“The man has acknowledged that he sat on the victim’s bed, and tried to explain the police DNA findings with indirect contact.
“If convicted, the man is likely to face a tough punishment in the courts, due to the gravity of the attack upon the victim in her own home.
“The victim is receiving psychiatric help following the ordeal.”
