Muslim woman to go to jail in Britain for letting her newborn die

Muslim woman to go to jail in Britain for letting her newborn die

PanARMENIAN.Net - A mother who gave birth to a baby girl in 'secret' following an affair, let her newborn die before burying its body in the ground, Daily Mail reports.

Fatima Ali, from Bury, Greater Manchester, feared she would bring shame upon her devout Muslim family for having the child out of wedlock.

And after giving birth to the infant - alone her bedroom, she cut the umbilical chord and left it to die.

Last week at Bolton Crown Court Ali burst into tears as she was given a 26-week prison sentence, suspended for two years, and subjected to a twelve month supervision order.

“The tragedy that followed is at the immense disaster for this child. She died within two hours of her birth, and, had you acted appropriately, her life could have been saved,” the judge said.
