A MATTER OF HONOR?
Honor Killing: Two Men In Pakistan Rip Sister’s Eyes Out, Cut Her Feet Off
November 6, 2016 — Breitbart.com reports: “Two Pakistani men have been accused of cutting their 40-year-old sister’s eyes out ‘with a sharp knife’ and chopping off her feet, marking the latest high-profile ‘honor’ killing in the Muslim-majority country where such murders are on the rise and many go unreported.
The mother-of-five was savagely murdered in Muzaffargarh, Punjab, after she allegedly kidnapped the daughter of one of her attackers.
Authorities have also charged Muhammad Aslam in connection with the murder for allegedly luring the woman to a spot on the pretense of a court hearing.
‘One of the suspects, identified as Muhammad Afzal, had suspected that his sister — Shareefan Bibi, 40 and mother of five — was involved in the abduction of his daughter [identified only as] Asia,’ reports the Express Tribune in Pakistan…” (This is a result of Shariah law – all the women who bring “dishonor” upon their family by premarital sex, extramarital sex, or marrying an unapproved husband, or any other offense, such as becoming too “Westernized” are to be slaughtered. This is to be carried out by the father, brother, or uncle. This headline breaks my heart. Presently seven daughters in the U.S. are dead and buried by honor killings. See the next three reports.)
Jordanians charged with killing sisters for ‘family honor’
October 16, 2016 — The Times of Israel reports: “Two Jordanian brothers were charged with murdering their two sisters in apparent ‘honor killings,’ a court official said Sunday.
The men, aged 22 and 24, were charged with murdering their sisters on Thursday evening in Naur, 20 kilometers (12 miles) southwest of Jordan’s capital Amman.
The official, who asked to remain anonymous, said the brothers claimed they had killed the women, aged 20 and 34, ‘to defend the family’s honor.’
‘The two brothers were looking for their older sister, who had been away from the family home,’ he said. ‘They found her in the house of the younger sister, who had married without the knowledge or consent of the family.’
They shot the younger sister twice and the older one five times, including once to the head, the official said.
The younger sister’s husband, who informed the brothers where the women were, was also arrested.
‘The public prosecutor charged all three of the arrested men with murder,’ the official added.
Another source familiar with the investigation said the two brothers had ‘claimed during questioning that they had carried out the crime for honor.’…”
Muslim Man Says He Had ‘No Choice’ But to Kill Sister Who Married a Christian
October 5, 2016 — Breitbart.com reports: “A Pakistani man who executed his sister with a bullet to the head because she married a Christian man said he had ‘no choice’ but to kill her because of her shameful act that brought dishonor on her family.
While his younger sister, Tasleem, was sitting in their kitchen with their mother and sister, Mubeen Rajhu shot her in the head at their home in Lahore this past August.
Eighteen-year-old Tasleem had married a Christian man named Jehangir, who even agreed to convert to Islam to please her family, but this wasn’t sufficient to stop her brother from killing her.
Rajhu now faces life in prison, but he has no regrets about the ‘honor killing,’ which he claims was the right thing to do.
‘I could not let it go. It was all I could think about. I had to kill her,’ Rajhu said matter-of-factly in a video interview released by the Associated Press. ‘I had no choice.’…”
Ohio Muslim immigrant kills own daughter
October 2, 2016 — WND.com reports: “Police say they can’t figure out the motive behind an Ohio father’s horrific crime of violence against his own daughter, and the media won’t touch the topic, but some say the answer lies hidden in plain view.
Jamal Mansour, 63, of Rocky River, Ohio, walked into his adult daughter’s bedroom at 1:15 a.m. Tuesday and shot her twice in the head while she slept. His daughter, Tahini Mansour, 27, died about 10 hours later at a local hospital.
‘We don’t have a solid motive other than an argument occurred between a father and his daughter,’ said Lt. George Lichman with Rocky River Police.
Islam experts and former Muslims say the suspect’s behavior is rife with clues but don’t look for the police or media to flesh them out and share those clues with the public.
Mansour is a Muslim immigrant from Jordan and his alleged execution-style killing of his daughter bears the hallmarks of Islamic honor violence, says Daniel Akbari, a former top Shariah lawyer in Iran who defected to the U.S. several years ago and now lives in Texas…”
