Friends and classmates of a 16-year-old girl who police say was murdered by her devout Muslim father in a Toronto suburb told local media Tuesday she was killed for not wearing a hijab. Police said in a statement they received an emergency call at 7:55 am local time Monday from "a man who indicated that he had just killed his daughter."
The victim, Aqsa Parvez, was "rushed to hospital with life-threatening injuries, but tragically passed away late last night."
Her father, Muhammad Parvez, 57, was arrested at the scene and will be formally charged with murder when he appears in court Wednesday, said police.
The girl's friends, meanwhile, told local media she was having trouble at home because she did not conform to the family's religious beliefs and refused to wear a traditional Islamic head scarf, or hijab.
"She wanted to go different ways than her family wanted to go, and she wanted to make her own path, but he (her father) wouldn't let her," one of her classmates told public broadcaster CBC.
"She loved clothes," another of her friends, Dominiquia Holmes-Thompson, told the daily Toronto Star. "She just wanted to show her beauty ... She just wanted to dress like us, just like a normal person."
According to her friends, Aqsa had worn the hijab at school last year, but rebelled in recent months.
They said she would leave home wearing a hijab and loose-fitting clothes, but would take off her head scarf and change into tighter garments at school, then change back before going home at the end of the day.
The victim's 26 year-old brother was also charged with obstructing police in the investigation.
Canadian father kills 16-year old daughter for not wearing her hajib. Her 26-year old brother charged as well. *ping*
Quite a story, but I expect it won’t have much follow up in the days to come...already falling in the headlines here.
Hey, we aren’t allowed to judge - it’s just an expression of their culture! Multiculturalism trumps all!
It’s a cultural thang, you wouldn’t understand........
Ok class, what's wrong with that sentence?
Isn’t arresting the father considered a hate crime under multiculturalist Canadian law? After all, he was only following the customs of his culture. And we all know that all cultures are equal and should be respected in the name of diversity.
Sick bastard. They are all sick. I cannot fathom ever killing my children, a sane person can’t. This father was probably chomping at the bit just to prove his devotion to the devil known as allah.
And they call this a religion? It’s a cult...and a bad one, at that.
Here’s a vid of a husband asking his wife to wear the hijab.
Notice it did not take place in a headchopper country. It happened in a formerly civilized country. That’s what happens when headchoppers and child killers are allowed in.
That video is pretty intense.......
Religion of peace my ass.
These fascists need to be stopped.
Nothing is wrong with the statement. That is the problem with islam.
Oh come on, I bet everybody does this from time to time. You know, the one kid just won’t wear the burka...
I don’t know if its the culture, religion, upbringing or what, but this crowd seems to have a real hard time acting like human beings.
Islam is an insane murder cult.
Take a look at the comments section here on this story: http://network.nationalpost.com/np/blogs/toronto/archive/2007/12/11/aqsa-s-friends-she-wanted-to-live-her-life-the-way-she-wanted-to.aspx#comments
I can’t tell if commenter PeaceLove is a moby (i.e., someone trying to make islam look bad by taking a radical stance) or is just a “devout” muslim. Seriously.
What “father” could do that? It is unnatural and contrary to the self survival instincts, the idea of family and the parental inclination to protect children. We cannot use the same values in moral judgement as we do with other beings.
Poor child. There is nothing normal about Islam! I hope they put her dad to death for killing her. He doesn't deserve to live, and neither does her brother.
Koranimal's minds have been taken over by demons. That's the only way they can do such horrible deeds. They're just not normal, and because this dad has sold out to satan, this girl had to die. Sick, perverted, demonic, cult of death is the only way to describe Islam!
