Regardless of the veneration of female deities pre-Islamic Arabia was a patriarchal society notorious for burying unwanted female daughters, which one would think extremely ironic.
The passage is found in Qur'an 16:58-59 and in the original wording merely states that "a woman" was buried alive under certain circumstances. Neither birth nor daughter is mentioned. If this information is given in translations, it is only an interpretation of the original text.
