A father received a harsh sentence after he beat his young daughter for talking to a white boy, prosecutors in the United Kingdom said.
A court has heard how the father beat his 14-year-old daughter for shaming the community after he discovered that she was having a secret romance with the boy. The 43-year-old father became angry after his wife picked up the phone at home and heard her daughter talking to the 15-year-old boy about sex.
“You have no faith in God. I’ll kill you before the community finds out,” the father told his daughter. When she refused to stop her relationship with the boy, the father beat her with a tennis racket.
The father was arrested after the boy became concerned when the girl stopped texting his. The girl no longer lives in the family home in Blackburn. The girl is still seeing the her boyfriend.
At the Burnley Crown Court, the father pleaded guilty to child cruelty. He was sentenced to 21 weeks in prison suspended for two years, with two years supervision.
