Man lets daughter drown rather than let strange men touch her

The father of a 20-year-old woman who drowned in Dubai allegedly stopped lifeguards from helping her.

The unnamed man had said he preferred to let her die rather than be touched by strange men after she got into difficulty on a beach in the city, a top Dubai official told Emirates 24/7.

Lt. Col Ahmed Burqibah, Deputy Director of Dubai Police’s Search and Rescue Department, said the incident had stuck with him.

He said: “The kids were swimming in the beach when suddenly, the 20-year-old girl started drowning and screaming for help.

“Two rescue men were at the beach, and they rushed to help the girl.

“However, there was one obstacle which prevented them from reaching the girl and helping her.

“This obstacle was the belief of this Asian man who considered that if these men touched his daughter, then this would dishonour her. It cost him the life of his daughter.”

According to Lt. Col Burqibah, the man became aggressive, physically pulling the rescue men away from the water and said he “prefers his daughter being dead than being touched by a strange man”.

The girl died in the incident but Lt. Col Burqibah said she could have been saved as they were “so close to her to pull her out of the water” when her father intervened.

The man was later prosecuted for stopping the rescue team from doing its job.

  1. The father should get a long prison term, and it should be well publicized in that part of the world.

  2. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2002_Mecca_girls%27_school_fire

    On March 11, 2002, a fire at a girls’ school in Mecca, Saudi Arabia killed fifteen people, all young girls. The event was especially notable due to complaints that Saudi Arabia’s “religious police” (aka the Committee for the Propagation of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice) stopped schoolgirls from leaving the burning building and hindered rescue workers because the girls were not wearing correct Islamic dress.[1] As Hanny Megally, Executive Director of the Middle East and North Africa division of Human Rights Watch put it, “Women and girls may have died unnecessarily because of extreme interpretations of the Islamic dress code. State authorities with direct and indirect responsibility for this tragedy must be held accountable.”[2]

  3. Man lets daughter drown rather than let strange men touch her

    Many things this poor excuse for a human being might be, a ‘man’ is not one of them.

  4. Pakistan and Saudi Arabia are the belly of the beast.

    They play a very wicked two faced game.

  5. It’s the ‘Darwinian Imperative’.

    Tribes from these desert regions, isolated for centuries, inbred and genetically recessive, would have died out naturally but for the oil bonanza & western medicine.

    No rationale or explanation is needed to explain the actions of primitive people and their self-destructive behaviour.

  6. right on the mark

  7. So he’s on a beach with his daughter in a place where there are Westerners.

    I hate to point it out, but that’s the behaviour of a moderate.

  8. Phantom

    This behaviour has little to do with the Islamic religion.
    Russia has a Moslem population of around 12%, and its army close to 50%.
    Moscow itself has only four Mosques. (Compare that with any Capital city in Europe).

    So, you may well ask, why isn’t Russia bedevilled with jihadists calling for death-to-the-infidel, and demands for Sharia law?
    Is it because they are white, and not from the Arabian peninsula?

    no it’s because Putin is KGB and people who do that disappear or die publicly

    And of course Chechnya is a part of Russia

    The process of Islamization was voluntary in the beginning. Women who wore a headscarf were rewarded with a prize. Now all women and girls, regardless of their religion, must observe Islamic dress code by wearing a head covering, long sleeves, and skirts below the knee in public schools and government buildings. Those who refuse become targets.

    Human Rights Watch released a report last year documenting a spate of attacks on women without head coverings. The females reported being harassed, some physically harmed for not observing the Islamic dress code.

  11. trying to get a new mosque built by naming it after Putin is NOT preaching radical jihad or open opposition to Putins government.

    Go to moscow and preach jihad or revolution. Your family will never find your bones.

    That’s interesting Phantom. Here’s some photos of Afghanistan before the peanut farmer and actor stated giving arms and money to the Taliban Mujahideen

  13. The event described happened in 1996:

    “Apparently the article – which originated on the website Emirates 24/7 – was from an interview in which lifeguards were asked to recount the strangest things that had happened to them. As someone who bothered to check out where it came from tells Monkey: “They mentioned this case of the Asian man who prevented his daughter’s rescue, but, and here’s the catch – it was from 1996.”

    Link here

  14. …not only 20 years ago, but a second hand account from a lifeguard who was asked for a good story about his otherwise dull and uneventful job..

  15. Well if it happened in 1996 it didn’t happen at all.

    Though curiously, the original piece doesn’t say it happened in 1996.

  16. You should hear some of the BS ‘stories’ from 70 years ago – fcuknig amzanig

    ….and just like that another thread is derailed.

  17. Paul – at 9.48pm Peter pointed out that the original ‘story’ was outdated, and you agreed at 9.52pm followed by Bernard showing that it had little credibility to begin with. So, to me, the thread was up for grabs and I linked to a piece of absolutely unbelievable BS which only idiots could go along with. ATW is however an idiot-rich zone so feel free to tell me that you believe the content of the link at 11.58pm.

  18. A fellow MP once described Michael Howard as “having something of the night about him”.
    I wonder what she meant..

  19. Bernard – you DON’T believe that Michael Howard’s aunt went into a gas chamber 3 times but wasn’t gassed, once because “the Germans ran out of gas”? You must be a naziwhowantstokill6millionjews!

  20. ATW is however an idiot-rich zone so feel free to tell me that you believe the content of the link at 11.58pm.

    Just as well we have narcissistic self deluded egotists super duper intelligent people like you here to keep us right then isn’t it?

    Was that comment not about Anne Widdecombe Bernard?

  21. Paul at 10.11pm – one need not be super-intelligent to prevail over an idiot: intelligent is good enough. Anyway, do you believe it or not?

  22. Believe what? That the Holocaust happened and that Nazis systematically murdered people they considered inferior on an industrial scale?

  23. What does it matter Allan?

    No one wants to discuss you or anyone else’s fantasy’s on Auschwitz

  24. Troll – indeed! Auschwitz is just a fantasy.

    Paul – you know very well what the question is and your evasions are typical. The question is:

    Do you believe that Michael Howard’s aunt went into a gas chamber 3 times but wasn’t gassed, once because “the Germans ran out of gas”?
