    This case should be looked by the concerened authorities . Islam is the religion which strictly forbids such acts of violence. Good work Gulfnews to outline such cases and indeed helping the needy . May Allah give them happy and prosperous life .

    The failures of humanity to differentiate between good and evil is at it's epitome. Nature has created all living beings equal but circumstances and teachings make us choose our paths of violence and peace. The scars caused today can deviate anyone to choose between these paths and it is important to cutlivate tolerance and respect into the next generation. Man and woman are both special in their own ways and one must acknowledge and accept this fact, as this is the foundation of any family life. Peace be with this family and may they be guided in choosing the right path to sculpt their destiny.

    It's really saddening to see such cases. How can a father treat his own daughters so badly? Being the father of two wonderful girls, I was really upset when I saw this. I hope UAE Govt takes strict action against the accused. May Allah protect the mother and the girls.

    Very sad to read this news and to sadly understand that we still live around people that worry more about gender of child rather than the beauty and happiness these kids bring to our life. When the world moves ahead with modernization the cost of the same is reflected on people such as these who tarnish the image of men around the world. I wont suggest or request for particular punishment. Let the law decide the most suitable punishment. Look forward to keeping a close watch on the developments.

    It's unbelievable that such barbaric people still have a place to live in. Such people need to be dealt with severe punishments. They have no moral virtues in their lives, they are mere beasts of the modern world. It's a shame on humanity. The suffering mother and her daughters deserve good and equal rights to living and education. May Allah shower all his mercy on them.

    The video is heart touching. How these beautiful girls be beaten like this? They need freedom, they need to go to school, they need to enjoy like any other child. The father may be earning well too, then why does he need a male child? How can he believe that such a son will live up to his expectations. There is story. There is a newly-wed couple, and the husband says to his wife do not open the bedroom door, doesn’t matter if her parents knock the door. After a while, his parents knock the door and the wife tries to move but he reminds her of the promise. Later her parents knock the door and again she moves towards the door, he reminds her again. Finally, she does not care for anything and opens the door. At that time, he embraces his wife and says, “I want a girl child”. This shows that at the end of our lives, it is the daughters who take care of their parents. So why is he hurting this girls? Let him give a bit of love now and you will see these daughters will love him more than anything forgetting their nightmares. The world will live only on LOVE or Almighty will bring some other subjects reject us. This guy need to be punished and his sisters too so that these girls and their mother get justice. This family needs to live a good life as their mother pleads. I'm sure the Honorable Rulers surely will help and i have no doubt on it.

    Cannot believe human beings have become so rude and daring to torture their loved ones. Allah will punish them if they escape here in earth.
