Canadian Teen Beaten By Father For Not Wearing Hijab

From Pamelageller:
Jessica Mokdad, Aqsa Parvez, Amina Said, Sarah Said, Noor Alamelki — all victims of honor murder for wanting to live free lives. For years I have worked to help girls like this, and Islamic supremacists and their leftwing lapdogs call me an “islamophobe.” Read the whole terrible story in FATWA: HUNTED IN AMERICA.

Ironically, Canadian authorities removed my bus ads offering help to Muslim girls living under threat of honor violence.

Police say the teenager told authorities she had suffered repeated violence by her father for more than a year. And when he learned that his daughter was removing her hijab as soon as left the family home, the violence escalated.

Honor killing and violence is in accordance with Islamic mores and tradition. A recent survey showed that 91 percent of honor killings worldwide are committed by Muslims, and 84 percent of honor killings in the United States were done by Muslims. This is no surprise. A manual of Islamic law approved by Al-Azhar, the most respected authority in Sunni Islam, stipulates that “retaliation is obligatory…against anyone who kills a human being purely intentionally and without right.” However, “not subject to retaliation” is “a father or mother (or their fathers or mothers) for killing their offspring, or offspring’s offspring.” In other words, Islamic law sets no penalty for a parent who kills his child. Also, the legal codes of Jordan, Syria, and other Muslim countries have substantially reduced penalties for honor murders as compared to other murders, and Islamic clerics have resisted efforts to stiffen penalties for honor killings.

Police say the teenager told authorities she had suffered repeated violence by her father for more than a year. And when he learned that his daughter was removing her hijab as soon as left the family home, the violence escalated.

Police spokesperson Jean-Paul Lemay said this was the first such case in Gatineau and encouraged any other women who might be victims of similar behaviour to come forward.

“We hope the courage of this young girl will encourage other young victims of honour-based violence to come forward and talk about any abuse they are (receiving) and we will be listening to them.”

The 35-year-old man was arrested Wednesday and appeared in court Thursday where he was charged with assault, assault with a weapon and uttering death threats. His name was withheld to protect the girl’s identity. Lemay said she is safe and not with family.

Hayet Laggoune, president of Outaouais Islamic Centre, denounced such violence. He stressed that women wear the hijab of their own free will and should never be forced.

“We must be clear. We cannot force someone to do something they are not willing to do,” Laggoune said. “Neither our religion nor our prophet teaches us that. We must be willing to do it. We can’t be forced to wear the hijab. (The violence) is not justified and we are against that.”
