    Muslim Mother In Hollywood Charged With Honor Burnings Of Daughter For Speaking With Boy Over Internet

    In Hollywood, Sahar Thabit, 35, appears vying to replace Joan Crawford as the reigning “Mother Dearest” in Hollywood. Thabit is a devout Muslim who is charged with burning her seventeen-year-old daughter for corresponding with a boy when she was already promised to a cousin for marriage. The honor burning was discovered by the girl’s school.


    Thabit now faces three counts of child abuse and has been ordered to stay away from her daughter, who is staying with friends. Police report that she “put a knife on the stove, heating the metal on the knife and placing it on the child’s arms.” A classmate at South Broward High School thankfully reported seeing the three burns on her arms.

    In a bizarre interview, the grandparents played down the injuries and the grandfather insisted it was just an accident: “She burned herself because we have an oven.” When it was pointed out to Ali Thabit that both burns on both arms were identical and thus unlikely to be an accident, he insisted “I swear to God, I didn’t see anything.”

    The girl had previously objected to the arranged marriage to her cousin but the parents and family insisted that she was promised to the cousin according to Islamic principles.

    People have their own ways of getting things done.

    Wonder no one has heard about love?

    there are other ways also to solve the prob... she should have politely talked to her daughter about the matter...

    a mother cant be this cruel... she don't deserve to be called a mother
