A Muslim father slapped and beat his 14-year-old daughter for ‘shaming’ their community after he discovered she was having a secret affair with a white boy.
The 43-year-old flew into a rage after his shocked wife picked up the phone at their home in Blackburn, Lancashire, and overheard their child talking ‘in explicit terms’ about her relationship with the 15-year-old.
During an angry confrontation, the father told her: ‘You have no faith in God. I’m going to kill you before the community find out.’
When she defied their pleas to stop the illicit romance, he ‘whacked’ her with a tennis racquet he kept in the boot of his car and in another incident, he grabbed her shoulders and started shaking her.

The father of three from a ‘traditional Asian family’ was later arrested after the boyfriend became concerned when the girl stopped sending text messages.
Now 16, she no longer lives at her family home in Blackburn and is still seeing the boy.
At Burnley Crown Court, the father, who cannot be named to protect the identity of the girl, admitted child cruelty.
