Bigoted father throws daughter into Ravi
11 September, 2013
LAHORE: A heartless father on Tuesday threw his daughter into the Ravi river. Later, his wife helped the police in arresting him.
In an Islamic society, daughters are considered the blessing of God; nevertheless, Tuesday's incident is reminiscent of pre-Islamic customs when daughters were buried alive.
The police claimed that the wife of the man lodged an FIR against him as she suspected him of throwing their daughter into the river.
The police have caught the man, who confessed that he threw his daughter into the river because he was unable to have a son.
