Germany: Turk Kills Daughter for Not Following the Islamic Way Print E-mail

June 29, 2009

Turkish Döner kebab saler Mehmet O (45) from the south German town of Schweinfurt stabbed his fifteen year old daughter Büsra to death with a kitchen knife because she refused to follow the "Islamic way", German police told German newspaper newspaper Bild.

The attack occurred Wednesday morning.  Mehmet stabbed his daughter several times while she slept.  About 3:30 AM Büsra's grandparents called emergency services.

 

Before the police arrived, the gravely injured girl bled to death.  O. meanwhile fled.

The police knew to arrest the Turk quickly.  He immediately confessed to the crime.  He said his motive was that he wanted to end the fight with his 'rebellious' daughter.

"She had to die because she refused to follow his Islamic way," according to a police spokesperson.

Büsra went to a high school in Schweinfurt. Though she wore a headscarf to please her father, she kept a Western lifestyle.  This led to bitter quarrels within the family.

Since 1996 there have been 50 'honor-murders' in Germany, most of which were committed by the large Turkish community.
