Yet another misunderstanding of Islam:
A mother has been jailed for life after beating her son to death for failing to learn the Koran by heart and then burning his body to hide the evidence.
Sara Ege, 33, collapsed as the sentence was delivered at Cardiff Crown Court and had to be helped, trembling and sobbing, from the dock.
Ege had been praised as a “brilliant mother” to seven-year-old Yaseen but was convicted of his murder by a jury at the same court last month.
The court heard she treated Yaseen like a “dog” and repeatedly beat him with a stick for failing to memorise religious texts quickly enough.
The schoolboy had suffered multiple injuries to his body and died in July 2010 from internal injuries caused by three months of punishing beatings.
Ege set fire to the family house to hide her actions and played the part of a parent mourning the tragic death of her son until it was discovered in a post-mortem that Yaseen had been dead before the blaze started.
