A Belgian woman has been jailed for stabbing her daughter for converting to Islam because she was afraid she would never see her again.
The Brussels Criminal Court sentenced the 54-year-old woman to three years in jail for attacking her 19-year-old daughter.
The woman had stabbed her daughter under the chin and in the abdomen after she accepted Islam and married a Muslim in secret.
Belgian news outlet DH.be reported that the judge said the sentence would demonstrate that the mother’s behaviour was “unacceptable”.
The daughter married a Muslim man without telling her Orthodox Christian family.
The mother claimed she had lost her temper because she was worried that she would never see her daughter again.
According to the mother’s lawyer, Olivier Martins, her daughter no longer wants to see her.
Muslims make up an estimated 4 to 6.5 percent of Belgium’s population.

DAKAR, Senegal (AP) — Muslims in the western part of Central African Republic are being forced to hide their religion or convert to Christianity under threat of death, Amnesty International said Friday.
A Christian militia known as the anti-Balaka, who have targeted Muslims and sent tens of thousands fleeing to neighboring countries.
Muslims told Amnesty International they’ve been forced to convert or hide practices.
“We had no choice but to join the Catholic Church. The anti-balaka swore they’d kill us if we didn’t,” said a 23-year-old man in the Sangha-Mbaere prefecture, whose name was not given to protect his security.
A Muslim trader said it was effectively illegal to pray.
“We have to hide, do it quickly, and do it by ourselves,” he said.
Amnesty International said the bans are happening outside areas under the protection of United Nations peacekeepers and renewed efforts must be made to protect Muslims under threat and bring back those who have fled.
“Many of the tens of thousands of Muslim refugees who were expelled from the country in 2014 would one day like to return home, but are waiting until they can do so in a safe and sustainable manner,” the report said.
