A Muslim man who became enraged at his daughter becoming “too Western” allegedly raped her.

According to the Norwegian press, the man -- believed to be in his 40s -- attacked his daughter at the family home in Fredrikstad.

Cops say the alleged victim -- in her 20s -- told detectives she was raped for not living a strict Islamic lifestyle.

“They had been arguing prior to the rape,” police lawyer Anette Sogn told Fredrikstad24. “The father has been angry because his daughter did not follow his (Islamic) way of life, she explained in questioning.”

The terrified young woman then fled the house and flagged a passing postman who called cops, according to the report.

The father is reportedly mystified why he has been charged with a crime, Fredrikstad24 reports. He allegedly said he was stunned by the DNA results.
