A religious Muslim mother brutally butchered her ill four-year-old daughter is the name of her god Allah.
The devout follower of Islam took the religion to the extreme by disemboweling the little girl during a religious sacrifice at her home in east London.
Shayma Ali, 36, became convinced that her young child was possessed by spirits so she stabbed the vulnerable victim no less than 40 times and barbarically sliced out her liver whilst listening to verses from the Koran.
When the horrified police arrived at the distressing murder scene, Ali was heard chanting religious jargon: “I seek refuge in God from the curse of Satan.”
Like a scene out of a tasteless horror film, the deranged women was discovered drenched in blood rocking back and fourth in the lounge of her home, her infants liver discarded on the carpet.
Reports state that the women has become obsessed that the child, who can not be identified for legal reasons, was possessed by a Jinn, referred in the Muslim bible the Koran, as an spirit that can occupy animals and humans.
Duncan Atkinson, prosecuting, revealed that Shayma Ali had become a particular intense worshiper of Islam after a trip to Egypt in 2009.
It was noted that Shayma Ali had become mentally ill, developing acute transient psychosis after sheÂ noticeably became aggressive towards members of her family, yet nothing was done to remove the dangered child from her care.
‘She became particularly pre-occupied by the idea of possession by a thing call a Jinn,’ said Mr Atkinson.
He told the Old Bailey that the mother had become increasingly obsessed with exorcising the evil spirits she believed existed from her religion.
‘She removed the eyes from toys and videos, covering over the eyes on covers of DVDs and books,’ he said.
‘She also became obsessed with cleaning because she believed such evil spirits thrived in dirty spaces.’ He said she ‘talked constantly about evil spirits’ and the belief that her daughter was possessed.
Shayma Ali later admitted to her psychiatrist that she had been praying when thoughts of cold bloodily sacrificing her innocent daughter ‘as proof of her love of God’ crept in.
May justice be done!
