See, this kid wanted to be an individual. She wanted to live her life wearing normal clothing, not wrapped in rags and hiding herself from the Neanderthals who apparently have no will power to control their throbbing members at the sight of a female’s ankle. And now, she’s dead. Strangled by daddy dearest for not conforming to the principles of the Religion of Piss that dictate women are inferior, must be clad in schmatas so as to not tempt the male members of said religion into sin.
Friends of the teenager, a Grade 11 student at nearby Applewood Heights high school, identified her as Aqsa Parvez and said they were shocked by the attack on the outgoing, likeable girl, but said she had been threatened by her strictly religious family before.
“She got threatened by her father and her brother,” said Dominiquia Holmes-Thompson, who had known Aqsa since they both started high school together. “He said that if she leaves, he would kill her.”
Ebonie Mitchell, 16, another friend of the victim, said the conflict with her father over wearing Islamic dress came to a head at the beginning of this school year. “She just wanted to dress like we do,” she said.
“Last year she wore like the Islamic stuff and everything, the hijab, and this year she’s all Western. She just wanted to look like everyone else. And I guess her dad had a problem with that.”
Ebonie said her friend had left home once before, in September, for about two weeks. She returned home, but the fights with her family over what she wore just got worse.
Dominiquia, 16, said her friend had been arguing with her father for more than a year over the restrictions he imposed on her, including demanding that she wear the hijab at all times. “She wanted to go out with her friends, hang out and just be like a normal person,” she said. “But he was always trying to control her … he wouldn’t let her go out or do anything.”
But nooo…. some readers of this blog claim that abuse of females doesn’t happen and that abhorrent practices such as female genital mutilation and honor killings are nothing but myths perpetuated by the evil, infidel west.
