Muslim Teacher Rapes His Six Daughters
This story is depressing. It's nightmarish. And it's sad.
(Singapore) A 46-year-old businessman and Muslim religious teacher was sentenced to 32 years in prison and 24 strokes of the cane for raping his six daughters from December 2003 until June 2005, when one daughter filed a police report.
Three wives of the man have pleaded guilty to abetting the years-long incestuous rapes of their daughters by their father, whose name is withheld to protect the innocent.
Deputy Public Prosecutor Eugene Lee said the husband told his multiple wives and scores of children that according to the Quran, a father "owned" his children and this extended to having sex with his daughters.Notably, two of the daughters became pregnant and underwent abortions.
