The sad tale of Rubina Ali from Slumdog Millionaire getting sold to the highest bidder is over for now, because police in India have released her father. Rafiq Qureshi was brought in for questioning after Rubina’s birth mother complained to the po po that he was trying to sell their daughter to a sheik for $300,000. A senior police officer in Mumbai told Reuters, “So far there is no evidence of any offense, hence there is no registration of complaint and no arrest.” Translation: Rafiq is giving us a cut of the sale.
Rafiq blames the evil doers at The News of the World for trying to knock his ass down to sell papers. Rafiq told People it was all a “lie made up by foreign journalists playing games with me.” The News of the World never released the video footage they supposedly have of a fake sheik and Rafiq discussing the sale of Rubina.
For Rubina’s sake, I hope some mean ass whores were just trying to sabotage her daddy and he wasn’t trying to pass her for a dime. Besides, if you’re going to sell off your child wouldn’t you immediately go to the two biggest buyers of babies in the world: Vadge and St. Angie? Duh.
