Afazuddin Ali, 36, has five children - three of them daughters.
A few months ago Ali married his eldest daughter, telling his wife Sakina that Allah had ordained him to do so.
"He is a deeply religious man and will never lie in the name of Allah," Sakina told a court in the northern district of Jalpaiguri.
"I agreed to his marriage with our eldest daughter when he invoked divine sanction," she said.
Let's also add that his wife is an ignorant buffoon. His neighbors, also muslim (as it should have been noted in the article), were not impressed by this "deeply religious" man's sudden communion with the divine:
"We didn't know she was married so when we confronted his wife, she told us about the bizarre marriage six months ago," Sheikh Ramzan, a village leader at Kasiajhiora, said.
"We wanted to smash his head, we were so angry."
Ali and his wife have not returned home because they fear a fresh attack from angry villagers.
If Allah wills the man to marry his daughter, surely Allah would provide protection from the mob? Oh ye of little faith!
