Father killed daughter for not wearing hijab, her friends say

Father killed daughter for not wearing hijab, her friends say

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.

In most countries Muslims are quite moderate and polite people, however there are some extreme fundamentalist sides and her father was obviously one of those. SAD, but in all religions there are extremists.

Mindless sheeple. Reminds me of the religious fervour during the time of Torquemada and the Spanish Inquisition.

The spanish Inquisition was a perfect example of extreme religion and how religion can become mixed up in politics and that is truly dangerous. ie a government that holds religious undertones.

He should be legally tried and if found guilty thrown in jail for an appropriate amount of time. Hope he does not get off playing the temporary insanity defense.

One of the local Islamic groups, the Canadian Council on American-Islamic Relations, has issued a statement on this and they're trying to make it a "domestic abuse" issue. Good luck spinning that angle. More and more of this story is leaking out, and the more that leaks, the more this guy (and his son) appear to be religious nut-jobs.

Apparently the girl had been living with friends for the past few weeks as she was rebelling against her family's strict interpretation of Islam. She wanted to enjoy a more Western lifestyle. She returned home to collect some of her belongings, a fight broke out, and the result is that her father allegedly strangled her to death. Her brother, 26 years old, has been charged with obstructing justice. No details have emerged as to what exactly his role in this was.
