Afghan Muslim Who Arranged Acid Attack On Three-Year-Old Son Asked Imam If It Was OK To Kill His Wife & Children

Seven people have gone on trial accused of being involved in an acid attack on a little boy in England, which was linked to an acrimonious custody dispute between his parents.

The boy’s father asked an imam if it was permissible under Islam for him kill his wife and their three children after she deserted their arranged marriage, the trial at Worcester Crown Court was told on Tuesday, January 22.

The child, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, suffered burns to his face and arm when sulphuric acid was sprayed at him in a Home Bargains store in Worcester on 21 July 2018 while he was with his mother shopping for a birthday gift.

Well at least he asked permission.
