A Muslim father living in the commune of Cavaillon who is accused of beating his wife and daughters after they refused to wear an Islamic veil appeared in the Avignon Court last Friday.
The 35-year-old man – a self-described traditionalist Muslim – said that he would not accept the fact that two of his daughters had refused to wear the hijab and didn’t care to complete their homework assigned by the Quranic school they attend, provincial daily French newspaper Le Dauphiné libéré reports.
The mother, who reported the abuse to the Cavallion police station on Monday, said that the 35-year-old Muslim father had repeatedly beaten her and children with belts, sticks, and electric cables.
Investigators have also said that the alleged abuser may also be charged with sexual offenses.
One day after the mother’s reports of abuse, French police arrested the man and took him into police custody. So far, the Muslim father has denied his wife’s accusations which have been corroborated by the two daughters.
