Islamic law forbids Muslim women to marry non-Muslim men. The Qur’an allows Muslim men to marry “chaste women from among the believers and chaste women from among those who were given the Scripture before you” (5:5), that is, “the people of the book,” who are primarily Jews and Christians. A Muslim woman, however, may not marry a Christian man. The reason for this is supremacist: the Muslim community must always grow at the expense of the non-Muslim community.
“Sefton Plaza shopping centre stabbing victim attacked by own family because of boyfriend’s faith, court told,” by Gabriella Marchant, ABC.net.au, December 1, 2021 (thanks to Ken):
Police have told a court a 21-year-old Adelaide woman was ambushed and stabbed by members of her own family because she was dating someone outside her faith.
Five people — three men and two women — have now been charged with attempted murder and unlawful detention over the alleged attack, which took place in a car park at the Sefton Plaza shopping centre on Main North Road on Tuesday morning.
Witnesses reported the woman had been stabbed and forced into a Holden Cruze by a group of people.
Police then attended a home in nearby Blair Athol where they found the victim with serous stab wounds.
She was taken to the Royal Adelaide Hospital.
Detectives yesterday arrested her 56-year-old father and 30-year-old brother, before arresting a third man last night.
A 55-year-old woman and a 28-year-old woman were arrested this morning.
The three men appeared in the Port Adelaide Magistrates Court this afternoon, where they did not apply for bail.
Police prosecutors told the court the victim was stabbed twice with a kitchen knife.
They alleged her brother then drove her to a house where she felt she was “slowly dying from blood loss”.
Police prosecutor Grant Watterson told the court that the victim, who is from a Muslim family, had been dating a Christian man whom her family disapproved of.
“Her family disapproves of the relationship because of cultural and religious issues,” he said.
“The victim is a Muslim … and her partner is a Christian.”…
“The bleeding was out of control,” Mr Watterson said.
“She screamed for her family to call an ambulance as she knew she was in trouble and slowly dying.
“She believed her family had tried to kill her and asserted that if she stayed in a relationship with [her boyfriend] they would not stop trying to kill her, and go after her partner as well.”
The prosecution said the woman had suffered damage to her liver and kidney, and had suffered internal bleeding, which required surgery….
