There’s been another incident in which a father attempted to kill his daughter for becoming “too Westernized”. As of the time this news article was published, the father hadn’t been found, so the phrase is someone else’s description of the issue. The other injured person is a young woman, so this doesn’t seem to be a boyfriend issue.

(CNN) — Arizona police are looking for an Iraqi man who they allege ran down his daughter and her friend because he believed his daughter had become “too Westernized.”
Peoria, Arizona, police said Wednesday that Faleh Hassan Almaleki, 48, struck his 20-year-old daughter, Noor Faleh Almaleki, and her friend Amal Edan Khalaf with a vehicle he was driving in a parking lot Tuesday afternoon.
Faleh Hassan Almaleki was angry with his daughter “as she had become too ‘Westernized’ and was not living according to [the family’s] traditional Iraq[i] values,” Peoria police said in a statement released Wednesday.
