UK Woman Gets 17 Years in Prison For Beating Her Son To Death After He Failed To Memorize Passages From the Quran

Published

article-koran-0107A British judge on Monday sentenced a woman he called a “devoted and loving mother” to at least 17 years in prison for beating her son to death after he failed to memorize passages from the Quran.

A jury at Cardiff Crown Court in Wales convicted 33-year-old Sara Ege last month of murdering 7-year-old Yaseen and burning his body to destroy the evidence.

Judge Wyn Williams said Ege beat Yaseen repeatedly with a stick over several months, causing internal injuries.

He said that, on the day he died in 2010, Yaseen had been kept home from school to memorize verses from the Muslim holy book, and that his failure “was the trigger for the beating” that killed him.

The judge agreed with defense arguments about India-born Ege’s state of mind, saying she was “a devoted and loving mother” who suffered from depression and had been a victim of domestic violence.

Still, he said, she subjected her son to “prolonged cruelty.”

Ege admitted killing her son in a confession taped by police, but later retracted it and blamed her husband, Yousef. He was tried and acquitted on a charge of failing to prevent his son’s death.

Ege sobbed as the judge passed sentence. Williams said the 2 ½ years she had spent in secure psychiatric units since her arrest would count toward her 17-year minimum sentence.

    Let us take a look at this woman in the picture. She isn’t even dressed like a muslim woman. I don’t know the source of this story so i can’t say anything about how authentic it is. But whatever way it is, the concept of beating a child to death because he didn’t memorize the Noble Qur’an is barbaric, extreme and unislamic. I condemn and denounce such actions.

    If a child merits no mercy on earth, l pity – marvel at the lot of the mother and all other adults having lived through that age doing worse.
