A 26-years -old, Nawab Ali Qureshi, has killed his four-year-old daughter, Rizwana, as a sacrifice to Allah during Ramadan.
He reportedly slit the girl’s throat, saying “I had to offer my most prized possession to Allah”.
The incident occured in Jodhpur India.
He previously denied killing Rizwana and accused a family cat of being responsible, according to Times of India. But he confessed after his wife Shababa went to the police and accused him of murder after finding their daughter at about 3am.
According to the Indian Express, Qureshi admitted to the murder, saying: “I am a devout Muslim and love my daughter more than my life.
“For several days she was at her grandmother’s place and returned on Thursday. I took her to the marketplace and bought sweetmeats and fruits.
“In the night I took her to the courtyard downstairs, recited a kalima, killed her, and then went back to sleep upstairs.”
Quereshi told police that the devil had entered him.
