Rifqa Bary says she ran to Florida to save her life: "I was threatened by my dad." She says that her father told her, "If you have this Jesus in your heart, you're dead to me. You're not my daughter. I will kill you." But now her father is trying to regain custody of Rifqa, and he and the Islamic Society of Central Florida say she has been "kidnapped" and "brainwashed" by a "cult," and that she's a "rebel," a "troubled teen."
Well, which is it?
"This is a cult group who kidnapped my daughter and took her away," claims Mohamed Bary, Rifqa's father.
She hitchhiked to the bus station and took a Greyhound from Ohio to Florida. How is that a kidnapping?
