Canadian Muslim family guilty in mass honour killing

Keeping women in their place. Words of the father…

“May the devil shit on their graves,”

“They committed treason themselves. They betrayed humankind. They betrayed Islam. They betrayed our religion…they betrayed everything.”

“I say to myself, ‘You did well.’ Were they to come to life, I would do it again.”

“There is nothing more valuable than our honour.”

… Mohammad Safia secretly recorded talking about the murders with his wife and son.

The victims: Geeti 13, Sahar 17, Zainab 17, Mohammad 52

Father, mother, brother guilty of 1st degree murder of three daughters and co-wife

Worldwide, Muslim honour killings of women and girls are so common that if North American or European papers were to cover every reported case there would be little room left on the front page for any other stories. But when a Canadian father, his second wife and a son plot weeks in advance to murder the family’s three teenage daughters and wife number one – well, that makes the news.

We like to believe that everyone wants the same things in life. This is just another reminder that not everyone shares the same values, and that some cultural values and religious scriptures may not be compatible with a free and democratic society.

    Wait a minute. Didn’t we have a similar thing happen here a few years ago?, and what did we do, Nothing. We just cater to every crack pot’s way of life to the detriment of our own. Democracy does not mean stupidity.

  2. Just want to know

    They all should be hanged. We are giving up our rights as a democracy to harbour these evil people, and our various governments giving in to their every whims and fancies. In our western world we are lettings these crack pots tell our governments what to do. I agree with France & Australia, you come to my country to word & live follow our rules, we didn’t ask you to come here, so abide by our laws are go back where you and your families came from.

    Keep talking, ‘Just want to know’.

  5. Tie her tubes!

    islam is a religion(???) of peace dontcha know. Peace within their very own households -as long as the women know their goddam place! lol at backward’s good that islam shows its true face to the civilized world every so often, that way we get to see the real religion of peace…bwahahaha

  6. This horrible thing happened at one of my childhood swimming holes. It is a few miles away from where I recently built Tiny House Ontario. The entire thing is sickening to me. Not just that this happened to these women and children in my own playground, but that these killings continue, that violence against women and children continues.
    May these four rest in peace, knowing that their perpetrators are in prison where they belong.

  7. Islam says no punishment for parents who honor kill

    One of the most important English-language sources for the content of Islamic law: Reliance of the Traveller: A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law: It is certified by Al-Azhar University as a translation that “corresponds to the Arabic original and conforms to the practice and faith of the orthodox Sunni Community…”:

    In Book O, titled “Justice,” in section 1, “Who is Subject to Retaliation for Injurious Crimes,” section o1.1 reads, “Retaliation is obligatory … against anyone who kills a human being purely intentionally and without right…”

    However, o1.2 clarifies (above) that “The following are not subject to retaliation” and then lists — after the lovely, egalitarian “Muslim for killing a non-Muslim” and “Jewish or Christian subject … for killing an apostate” — “(4) a father or mother (or their fathers or mothers) for killing their offspring, or offspring’s offspring.”

    An Anglican priest suggested last evening on Faith FM that the time had come to move beyond the shackles of ‘religion’ which bind, as here into evil in its name, and which result in these kinds of horrors throughout history, and explore ‘religiousness’ – the love affair which most of us have with the divine, the ‘beyond’ and ‘within’, however exactly we express it. I suppose they will take away his licence! The programme is repeated on Thursday 2nd at 5.0pm.

  9. Laughing Out LOUD at dem.

    No NO please don’t take away my religion and its shackles! Pleeease!
    It feels so good. Religion gives me a hobby…a belief club.
    My little mind has nothing else to chew on, for cud.

    Who else would I “believe in” were it not for my make believe “God”
    or “Allah” or Red Plastic Bag
    or whoever else entity (MONEY!) I need
    to fill the tiny vacuum that doesn’t quite fill my little cranium?

    I so much prefer believing than knowing and scientific knowledge.

    You see, scientific knowledge has close to zero emotional content,
    and THAT is the stuff I need (apart from a psycho-therapist).

    You see, Science adjusts its views based on what has been observed
    whereas Faith and religions are the denial of observation so beliefs can be preserved at all costs.
    Heck, we haven’t spent thousands of years rigging up The Greatest Show On Earth
    to have mere science come along and screw the whole thing up.

  10. lol at “we haven’t spent years…science come along and screw the whole thing up” I love that sentence. You got it right, summed it up perfectly. Well what can you say about these subhumans that we have here; shooting them into outter space and out into the void to suffocated would be too nice. These bottom dwellers need to stay in their own hell bound countries and do their sh*t! But they want to come to the West, enjoy the fruits of being here but still stay shackled to their neaderthal religions and then cry out “ahhh but it’s my religion” as if that is a get-out-of-jail-free-pass, not this time Ahmed, rot in jail the 3 of you freaks!

    @Islam says no punishment for parents who honor kill,
    Stop copy n pasting.
    As already commented before on another one of these nonsensical posts, retaliation here refers to Qisas(i.e. hanging,chopping off head, etc) . Which means that a person cannot take Qisas (retialiation) by way of killing his own brother/sister/father etc.
    e.g. father kills daughter…. the son cannot take revenge by way of qisas because his father killed his (the son’s) sister.
    Dont let it be misunderstood that the father cant be punished. They are other forms of punishment that can be meted out to the father. e.g Tazir , diya, hudud. If you dont know what it means , LOOK IT UP.
    Lastly , these so called honor killings have no place in Islam. In no Quranic verse or Hadeeth is there any statement justifying such.
    In fact , there are verses that abhor such behavior. I will go as far as stating that there are verses expounding the virtues of having “girl children” as opposed to “boy children”.
    Now you can go back to your Tea Party Bible thumping sessions.
