Upon learning that his girlfriend was seen by a male doctor, Afghan-born Ahmad Sherzai, started punching the girlfriend in the abdomen so hard, that the unborn baby suffered a cerebral hemorrhage and died.
Islam vs Europe The starting point for the fateful event was a routine gynaecological examination of the pregnant woman. As the female doctor who was usually responsible for her was on holiday, the examination was performed by a male substitute instead. For the then 20-year-old boyfriend, a practicing Muslim, this was horrific.
The fatal punches caused the unborn baby to suffer cerebral haemorrhages while still in its mother’s womb. It was delivered through emergency Caesarian section, but died of its serious injuries two days later in the hospital. As the child was not born at the time of the action, the indictment against the 21-year-old refers only to “abortion” and not to murder.
When the Rheine resident learned of the examination by the doctor, a major row broke out between the couple. Sherzai is said to have struck his seven-month pregnant girlfriend forcefully several times in the abdomen.
UPDATE: The Muslim got 2 years and 9 months for this. His girlfriend was of German origin and from a Catholic family. Both Sherzai and his father (“a devout family”) have had a long history of trouble with the police.
