A Washington mother, who moved to Saudi Arabia to teach at a university, lost custody of her daughter after divorcing her husband because she was too Western to raise the child, according to a Saudi court.

Bethany Vierra, 32, lost custody of her daughter – four-year-old Zaina – in July after the court determined that the mother was too ‘new to Islam.’

The article goes on to state the following:

‘The mother is new to Islam, is a foreigner in this country, and continues to definitively embrace the customs and traditions of her upbringing. We must avoid exposing (Zaina) to these customs and traditions, especially at this early age,’ Judge Abdul-Ellah ibn Mohammed al-Tuwaijri said in his July ruling, according to CNN.

The 32-year-old student had moved to the Middle Eastern country in 2011 to teach at a local university.

Vierra’s ex husband used her social media as evidence that she was allegedly living a non-Islamic lifestyle.
