It was the statement of a clearly shocked father, when former MP Naser Khader spoke to the Danish media this morning.

BT reports that his daughter Sofia was attacked and robbed by two girls in the early hours of Saturday, when she was celebrating her 14th birthday with some friends at a playground near Ørestad Gymnasium. 

"It's awful. To me it almost sounded like torture. When I saw Sofia at the hospital she was still bleeding from her head, after they had dragged her around by the hair. She still had bruises and grazes all over and she was crying," he told BT.

It was later revealed that the girl knew her attackers who came from MultifunC, an institution for troubled and criminal 14 to18-year-olds. It's not the first time the two girls, aged 14 and 15, had threatened her, but it remains unclear if Khader being her father had anything to do with the assault on Saturday.

Khader himself has several times received death threats and been assaulted on the street because of his critical views on Islam. Today he lives under constant PET protection at a secret address.

Khader told Metroxpress that, while he can accept threats on his own life, it's much worse when something like that happens to his daughter.

"I've been through this for many years and I can handle it. But it's something else when it happens to your kids. It's very unpleasant."

Police have filed a report of robbery and assault, but have handed the case over to social authorities as both of the girls are minors.
