And when it comes even my daughter who is now about 16 do not resist does not report to anybody.
Mahmud revealed that he decided to give himself up to the Police,they did not arrest me because i know that what l have been doing is an abomination,which will make me lose my job, friends and family. But if my imprisonment will liberate my daughter so be it.
Mr Mahmud explained that about what will happen to the pregnancy which is about two months old, I will not support abortion. The Ministry of Social Welfare should know what to do. I am somewhat relieved that I may be out of my daughter’s life so that the evil forces that makes me have sex with her will stop and she would be free.”
