Father tries to kill daughter who wants to leave Islam

October 10, 2006 at 11:05 pm (Blogs, Idiots, Islam, News, Religion, The West)

From Isaac Schrödinger‘s post “No Compulsion” (which hat-tipped LGF‘s “Honor Killing in Australia”): “Religion link to stabbing” by Greg Stolz of The Courier Mail. (Preserved here for posterity.)

A teenage girl wanted to convert from Islam to Christianity. Her father tried to stab her. Her mother intervened, and was stabbed (and killed). The girl ran out of the apartment. She has survived. Her father is battling for his life (and I hope he loses).

    OK I will take any murder that happens in the west and call Christians Evil. Thanks.

      wow, that is so sad you say Christians are evil. that is poorly thought out rhetoric that was placed in your head by ignorant people that have nothing better to do that complain about others.

      try thinking for yourself instead of relying on the negative comments of others.

      people are not inherently evil. everyone is good but some make bad choices… especially the the choices that are made on compulsion and not thought through and how they will effect others.

  2. Muslihoon said,

    You evidently completely ignored the fact that the murder was because a Muslim wanted to leave Islam.

    Many Christians leave Christianity. Many Jews leave Judaism. Even Buddhists and Hindus apostatize. But no one tries to kill them.

    Only in Islam do they still try to kill apostates today.

    Your comment is utterly ridiculous and insensitive.

    • Are you retarded? said,

      LOL.. You apparently haven’t read the old testament or the Torah or the Bible for that matter.

      You also seem to be oblivious of everything other than anti-islamic news.

      Deuteronomy 13:7-12
      Leviticus 20:13

      2000! Yes 2000 people were killed in San Juan, Mexico for leaving the Catholic faith.

      Please update your reading regimen. Stay away from FOX and newspapers with Hollywood Celebrities on the front cover.

        So True. Many of these people are picking at a bogeyman with a media monster. They have no objectivity in the mattter and discuss these issues largely amongst themselves. So many forum out there with informed and educated Muslims where REAL, OBJECTIVE, and FACTUAL discussions can happen. But they avoid discussions that turn the mirror in on themselves or bring some measure of responsibity to their own doorsteps. No bigger current proof of that than the wikileaks exposes and the weak responses by these moral giants who judge Muslims.

    you are just posting non-sense!! IT IS AN ACCIDENT!! since when accidents are considered Ruels!! Muslims don’t kill anyone who leaves Islam… Only Those Who leave and TRY to make others leave by spreading Non-sense about Islam… other than that everything is fine.. so this man is wrong. End Of Story.

    Alaa,
    It is not an accident when you try to kill some one, and you do in fact kill someone.
    “Only Those Who leave and TRY to make others leave by spreading Non-sense about Islam” IT IS NOT OK TO KILL PEOPLE BECAUSE THEY BELIEVE DIFFERENTLY THAN YOU. If you ever come to accept this simple truth maybe, just maybe a lot of other things will begin to make sense to you.

    IT IS AN ACCIDENT THAT ONE FATHER FROM 1.3 BILLION MUSLIMS TRIED TO KILL HIS DAUGHTER!!

  6. Muslihoon said,

    Alaa, there is no reason to shout.

    And you seem to be ignoring the ease with which fathers and brothers turn to honor killings. This is not the case of one father from 1.3 billion Muslims but rather a mentality that seems to breed this type of behavior. Consider, for example, the rash of honor killings that Western courts systems have had to deal with in Europe and Australia. (Leaving aside, of course, uncontested honor killings that occur with alarming frequency in Muslim states – and I know of it because I have lived in one such state.) No, this was neither an accident, nor an isolated case.

    this is just a mis-understanding of Islam. End of story.

  8. Isaac Schrödinger said,

    Alaa: “this is just a mis-understanding of Islam. End of story.”

    Wikipedia:
    “All five major schools of Islamic jurisprudence agree that a sane male apostate must be executed. A female apostate may be put to death, according to some schools, or imprisoned, according to others.”

    It seems this, um, “misunderstanding” is quite widespread.

    […] And within hours the news has been picked up by numerous blogs like this, this , this , this and numerous others, all taking it another opportunity to raise their point against Islam. […]

    There is no misunderstanding – when women are covered head to toe at all times you cannot see bruises on their face or arms from being hit or grabbed, when they are prevented from leaving their house unescorted, they cannot escape violence (such as schoolgirls being killed for trying to flee a burning school without burqas), and when they are prevented from voting they have no voice in their own fate.

    Ultimately this leaves them at the mercy of simple human nature, which definitely has an evil side, regardless of what culture you are from – Christian, Muslim, Hindu etc.

    This is why laws must be strong and equal, and easily accessible to all people, whether they are religious laws or secular ones.

    […] Last month, the day Dr Yunus won the Nobel Prize, I posted a blog about an incident in gold coast of Australia. A Bangladeshi family was in turmoil, the mother was stabbed to death; a father was in hospital critically injured and a daughter, was screaming out in the street. Police, the western media and the world blogosphere picked up the story as an attempt of honor killing of the daughter who wanted to convert to Christianity. As I monitored this news in the blogosphere, I was amazed to see that within hours the news was first published in the local newspaper, it was picked up by bloggers all over the world, from Alaska to Adelaide, India to Israel. All used the story to, again, smear religion Islam with headings like, ” Honor killing in Australia”, Muslim Religion blamed for fatal stabbing“, “Whoever changes his Islamic religion, then kill him,”, ” Father tries to kill daughter who wants to leave Islam” etc….. […]

    Some of you are pathetic. Most muslim women do not get beaten up, and in the Quaraan it does not encourage mulsim men to hit their wives. Also it does not say kill those who lose faith in islam.

    I happen to know this bengali-mulsim family and I know it was an accident.

  13. Shumi Begum said,

    i really seriously think the fatheris a extremist…turth is if someones not happy with something then they will change it…allah knows best…i dont think its any use you guys debating amongst your selves…my names shumi by the way…

  14. JupiterMrt said,

    How blind are muslims, I mean braiwashed by the teaching of the evil koran. It is written in the koran:

    Koran 47.4 “When in battle you encounter unbelievers, then cut off their heads…”

    8.12 “…terrorize the infidels. Cut off their heads and the tips of their fingers.”

    9.5 “After the sacred months have ended, then kill the idolaters wherever they are”

    4.92 “It is against Muslim law for a Muslim believer to kill another Muslim. But if it happens accidently, then one slave must be freed and compensation paid to the victim’s family”
    (The Quran approves of and encourages Muslims keeping slave-girls).

    4.34 “Men are superior to and have authority over women. Women should be obedient to men, and keep themselves covered. Disobedient women should be beaten.”

  15. ncosia said,

    Well here’s my say in the matter:

    1) All religions have an extremist side and certain writings that encourage these extremists to commit violence and such.
    2) Islam is a religion of non-violence.
    3) People should follow the golden rule “Do not do unto others what you don’t want others to do unto you”

    I’m not saying Islam is a bad religion but if you really love Islam please tell the extremists to stop this violence and aggression! Protest it! Each religion has it’s bad history. But whats important is that you have the power to change it!

    Years later and peoples views are entrenched, but lo and behold … has anyone followed up on what really happened? No. Has anyone contacted the people in question tp query or conveyed their sympathies to the family? No. All the women in my family are fully clothed .. just as Mary, the mother of Isa .. All educated, all professional, all muslim.

    If you want to believe your own well-spun lies .. then do so .. ignore the contrary evidence and walk away from the balanced view .. but it makes for a very narrow minded person and a very shallow life.
