Another honor killing in USA: Muslim brother knives his sister

leave a comment »

Luckily he didn’t kill her:

Waheed Allah Mohammed "allegedlly" knived his sister because she was a "bad Muslim girl".

Infuriated because his younger sister was going to clubs, wearing immodest clothing and planning to leave her family for a new life in New York City, Waheed Allah Mohammad stabbed her outside their Henrietta home, prosecutors allege.

Waheed Allah Mohammed “allegedlly” knived his sister because she was a “bad Muslim girl”.

Afterward, he told Monroe County sheriff’s investigators that he attacked his sister because she had disgraced their family and was a “bad Muslim girl,” according to court documents.

Mohammad, 22, is scheduled to appear Friday in Monroe County Court on charges of attempted second-degree murder and first-degree assault in the May 8 attack on Fauzia A. Mohammad, 19.

The case is the second in four years in Monroe County in which an immigrant from South Asia is alleged to have killed or tried to kill a family member over the perceived loss of family honor — an occurrence that is not uncommon in South Asia but is rare in the United States.

Then it goes on with the normal mumbling about “not being in Islamic traditions”. Well, then Muslims have a problem because in a nearly 100 percent of honor killings Muslims are involved and they keep on saying that the reason is that the woman is not a good Muslim. In Turkey the perpetrators are even praised for what they have done:

Murder becomes inevitable when honor is at stake and turning to murder in such a situation is seen as a respectable act by the society.

One must ask why those Muslims killing other Muslims because of being bad Muslims is not an Islamic issue.

This is not the first brother-trying-to-kill-his-sister-out-of-honor that we see this year, though. Really disgusting.
