A father reportedly allowed his 20-year-old daughter to drown to death because he was concerned about her being touched by men outside her family, according to a Dubai news site.

Quoting a top police official, Emirates 24/77 reported Sunday that the man got in the way of lifeguard rescue attempts on a Dubai beach in order to prevent her modesty from being violated.

“The father was a tall and strong man. He started pulling and preventing the rescue men and got violent with them. He told them that he prefers his daughter being dead than being touched by a strange man,” Lt. Col Ahmed Burqibah, deputy director of the Dubai police’s Search and Rescue Department, told Emirates 24/7.

“She died unfortunately, at a time when she had a chance to live, especially that the rescue men were so close to her to pull her out of the water,” he said.

Guess they should have “rescue women”?

Personally, I am amazed at the attitude towards women.

These are not “delicate flowers” that will be ruined by a mere touch.

These are living breathing powerful people capable of “creating” life.

If I had a child, I wouldn’t let any religious notion prevent me from keeping my child alive. Even at risk or certainty of my dying.

From an economic pov, it’s really good that ⅔ of the world keep women and minorities “in their place”. Imagine how much wealth could be created if they were free to create in a truly free capitalist system.

Argh!

Requiescat In Pacem, poor girl. You were the victim of stupidity and ignorence. Not much can be done about that.

Argh squared!

Life’s tough enough as it is without adding to the difficulties.
