A Canadian mom admitted to stabbing her daughter repeatedly with a kitchen knife for coming home late.
Johra Kaleki’s attorney said she was mentally distraught when she callously told the cop who arrested her, “It’s my daughter, I can do what I want.”
Her daughter, Bahar Ebrahimi, was 19 when she started rebelling against her parents’ Muslim faith and staying out all night, according to Canada’s National Post.
After she stayed out for two nights in a row in June 2010, her father was talking to her in the basement of their Dorval home when Kaleki, 40, hid a large knife under her shirt and asked her husband to “just leave us alone for five minutes.”
Then, she told cops, “I stab her, stab her neck. She said, ‘No Mom!’ I said, ‘It’s for your good. Let me finish.’”
Ebrahimi survived the horrific attack. Kaleki reportedly lamented to a detective that the blade wasn’t sharp enough to give her daughter “the peace that she needed.”
Immediately after the stabbing, she was unrepentant and told cops she was trying to give Ebrahimi “wisdom,” the Montreal Gazette reported.
But after a four-hour interrogation, she broke down. “I went against my religion. I went against my God,” she sobbed. “I will be punished in this world and I will be punished on the day of judgment.”
Kaleki faces charges of attempted murder, aggravated assault and illegal use of a weapon in an ongoing trial.
Her lawyer, Isabel Schurman, is seeking to have her initial statements declared inadmissible in court.
