Baby Abuse in Britain

Perhaps this is the happy medium between liberal democracy and sharia that we’ve been searching for?

A BANGLADESHI woman who shook a baby boy so violently that he suffered brain damage walked free from court yesterday because a judge conceded that she did not know how to behave in the West.

Rahella Khanom, 24, caused the five-month-old boy in her care to suffer fractures to his breast bone and ribs as she tried to rid him of evil spirits, Southwark Crown Court was told.

But the judge said that Khanom’s strong cultural and religious beliefs, and the fact that she had been forced by her husband to live in isolation since coming to Britain from Bangladesh, meant that there were exceptional circumstances in her case.

    Liberals have dysfunctional sense of tolerance.

  2. Oh Jesus, that’s terrible.

    I don’t know, it sounds like a pretty exceptionally terrible situation to me. A person might go bonkers living in isolated abuse.

    That poor baby.
