When religious devotion outweighs the sanctity of life

Man tells Peel police he killed daughter; 16-year-old girl fights for life

hijab-strangling-victim-aqsa-parvez.pngA 16-year-old Mississauga girl is fighting for her life in hospital, after a man called Peel Regional Police this morning saying he had killed his daughter.
“At 7:55 we received a call on 911 from a man indicating that he had killed his daughter,” said Peel Police Constable J.P. Valade.
Police found the victim at an address on Longhorn Trail, in the Hurontario and Eglinton area.
The girl is in critical condition, and Peel’s homicide squad is monitoring the probe.
‘‘A 57-year-old male was taken into custody at the scene,’’ said Const. Valade.
At this hour, Peel police have set up a command unit at the scene, where officers are canvassing neighbours and a forensic unit is at work inside the large two-storey home. Neighbours told Global News that the family is new to the affluent cul-de-sac.
‘‘I didn’t know the family really well. You would see them around the neighbourhood but they would never talk to me,’’ said one neighbour, who said he believed the family was Muslim. Source.

Teen girl in critical condition after alleged dispute over hijab

UPDATE: Aqsa Parvez has reportedly died.

Chris Wattie filed this earlier story:

A 16-year-old girl is in critical condition after being choked by a man believed to be her father, apparently after a dispute with her family over her refusal to wear the hijab, the Islamic headscarf worn by some Muslim women.

Peel Regional Police arrested a 57-year-old man yesterday morning after receiving a 911 call from a suburban home in Mississauga from a man saying he had killed his daughter. When police and paramedics arrived at the house they found a 16-year-old lying on the floor without any vital signs, police said.

Constable J.P. Valade, a spokesman for Peel police, would not release the names of either the victim or the man arrested and would not give any details about what transpired inside the large, two-storey home in a well-to-do subdivision.

“We are not getting into the details of her injuries at this time,” he said. “We aren’t getting into any details about this case. This investigation is really in its infancy: officers are still canvassing the neighbourhood and talking to family members.”

However, early police reports indicated the teenager had been choked and that the attacker was her father.

The girl was rushed to Credit Valley Hospital and later transferred to the Hospital for Sick Children, where she was listed in critical condition last night with life-threatening injuries.

Her condition is so grave that police have not yet charged the man arrested at the scene until they know whether he will be charged with murder or attempted murder. He was scheduled to appear in Brampton court on Tuesday.

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.”

The stricken girl’s friends said the fights with her father got so bad that she had left the family home to live with friends about a week ago. “She was going back, but just to get her stuff,” said friend Krista Garbutt. “She was scared to go home, but she had to get her clothes and stuff.”

Neighbours said as many as 11 people lived in the home, which was sealed off by crime scene tape and surrounded by police cars yesterday, all members of an extended Pakistani family. Const. Valade confirmed that there were other people in the home when the teenager was attacked.

“I didn’t really know any of them,” said one woman, who would not give her name. “There were a lot of them living in that house, always coming and going. They didn’t talk to me, maybe just to say hello once in a while. That’s all.”

The home where the teen was attacked is the listed address of Muhammad Parvez, a Mississauga cab driver. “He was Muslim and very devout, very observant,” said one of his fellow drivers at Mississauga’s Blue and White Taxi, who did not want his name used. “He was always stopping to take breaks and pray: three, four times a day.”

His eldest son, also named Muhammad, also worked as a cab driver and lived in the family home with his wife and at least one child, the driver said. Several people inside the home were questioned by police before being allowed to leave.

Neighbours said the family moved in just over a year ago. Source.

    Pretty unbelievable, isn’t it? All the while we are the ones who are being told that we need to be tolerant and accept them into our culture. Personally I refuse to be tolerant and accepting until they can prove – as a whole – to be tolerant of us and of their own people. To murder one’s own daughter over a religious discrepancy shows absolute intolerance of anything that strays from their own narrow-minded viewpoint and belief. How can we ever hope to possibly coexist with such people when it is evident that the only way that they will accept coexistence is through total assimilation into their belief system and culture?

  2. December 17, 2007 at 9:30 pm

    That is the kicker. There is no tolerance with in Islam. But alas, we are expected to lay down the red carpet of tolerance for Islam. That just wont do. I say we pull the rug out from under them.

    Aqsa Parvez’s death is in my mind an honor killing. Backwards and barbaric. Her life was worth nothing?

    Then there is the river of denial

    Teen’s death had nothing to do with Islam: imam

    Muslim community leaders say they are saddened by the slaying of a 16-year-old Mississauga, Ont. teenager, but say Islam had nothing to do with it.
    The religious figures said Islam in no way condones acts of violence, and the death shouldn’t reflect badly on their faith.

    “The bottom line is, it’s a domestic violence issue,” Sheik Alaa El-Sayyed, imam at Mississauga’s Islamic Society of North America, said at a press conference.

    “We, as Muslims, are Canadians and we should be dealt with just like everyone else. We have rights, duties … pros and cons just like all other human beings.’

    A young girl has died at the hands of her own father in the name of Islam. And all the local iman is concerned about is damage control?!

  3. December 18, 2007 at 4:38 am

    What is really irritating is that they say that it is a “domestic violence” issue, which is simply not true. You always have to look at the motivation behind a violent crime – unless of course it conflicts with your agenda. In this case, the motivation wasn’t something that can be generically lumped into a “domestic violence” category. There was a definite reason for this, and it was her rejection of Islamic culture and law. Had he snapped and killed her because she dropped and broke a favorite glass after he had a few too many drinks, then you might be able to tag it as “domestic violence.” But that just wasn’t the case.

    People need to be made aware that this is what they face when they bow down to the culture of Islam. Islamic culture and law cannot exist side by side with the rest of us. Had this happened in Saudi Arabia or some other Muslim nation, it probably wouldn’t have even made the news. The father probably would have been commended for dispatching the infidel quickly and efficiently. The only reason it made news here was because it happened on our side of the pond, and we just don’t put up with that kind of shit.

    No and it shouldn’t and most importantly NO ONE should expect it to. I am not completely sure of this but, I read the father had been living in Canada for 30 some odd years. That is outrageous! Now whether or not that is a fact. If you think about it why should it matter? He is fully aware that abusing children and murder is against the law! Ironic that here we had a young girl assimilating nicely and then because of that choice she is now dead. Because her father choose not to.

    Hang him from the highest tree. The monster!

    But then why is that on every Friday Christians are accepting Islam as their religion right here in Canada? Come on guys, you need to wake up and see.. You are so short-sighted that you can only see what you want to see. Islam is a religion of Piece. Do not misunderstand what muslims are doing by what Islam says.
    I am sure you know a lot of Christians that have done way more than one killing, but why when a Muslim does the crime, it is Islam?
    Open your eyes..
    As far as this case is concerned, any muslim would say that this idiot should be hanged. There is a verse in Quran that says that there is no (use of) force in religion. Now if he wished to practise what he “thought” was right, he is in jail.. He did not flee the scene and offered to be taken by the Police. In the nutshell, this was a sick person, who will have plenty of time to be cured in jail.
    And as far as you are concerned, closing your eyes or just saying stupid things like your comments on blogs wont make the Muslims go away. Read the Quran and see. I am sure if you are a reasonable person, you will probably accept Islam after the truth is unveiled to you. But you won’t because you are so stubborn, and you think whatever you say is right. May God show us all the true path.

    Are you out of your freakin mind?
    Not in a million years!!!!

    Stubborn? I like to think of it as AWARE of the TRUTH.

    God has shown me the true path and it is not islam!

    There is a verse in Quran that says that there is no (use of) force in religion.

    Explain the dead apostates then flaming fool.

    My point exactly..
    Read your message yourself and tell me whether the predictions that I made about you were wrong?
    I am not here to defend any certain type of people, but honestly, why is Islam the fastest growing religion in the western countries? It is for the people who have open minds and do not study another religion having reservations.
    As I said before, I totally agree to you about this person’s vicious act and I condemn it as much as you do, but there is something that is called respect for another religion. Do you see that in yourself? If you would not respect Islam, how do you expect a Muslim to respect Christianity?

  8. April 14, 2008 at 1:18 pm

    Personally I do not care what you think.

    there is something that is called respect for another religion

    I do not consider islam a religion.

    If you would not respect Islam, how do you expect a Muslim to respect Christianity?

    Islam does NOT deserve any respect! Period!

    Islam does NOT respect human rights.

    The difference between Islam and Christianity is that Islam demands respect.
    How fragile…..

    Explain the dead apostates. 🙄

    Treason to the state which is Islam. Treason to Islam which is the state. Over and above the value of human life. Punishable by death. They are so afraid that the cult will lessen in numbers as more see the light. Willing to protect the entire “collective” by wielding the threat of death as ‘their’ weapon. Brutal, unforgiving, intolerant. There is compulsion in Islam.
    How fragile…..

    why is Islam the fastest growing religion in the western countries?


    It is for the people who have open minds and do not study another religion having reservations.

    😆 😆 That is funny. Do you know any more jokes?

    Islam is an evil death cult created by Muhammad a blood thirsty power hungry war mongering pedophile.

    As far as this case is concerned, any muslim would say that this idiot should be hanged.

    That is an out and out lie. Is this the only honor killing? No. So what you say could not be further from the truth.

    Well if you are in a complete state of denial, and you cannot listen to reason there is nothing that I can do for you. If you even do not consider Islam as a religion, why do you even talk about it? The only thing that I am going to do for us, all of us, is praying to God to show us the right path, if it is Christianity or Islam, or even some other religion.

    Proof of Islam being the fastest growing religion in the west:

  10. April 14, 2008 at 1:45 pm

    If you even do not consider Islam as a religion, why do you even talk about it?

    BECAUSE it is a threat to western civilization. There is a thing called freedom many hold dear.
    Another Islamic / UN Obscenity

    And all of humanity.

    That is no proof. Get real.

    Islam and Christianity: Looking at the Numbers

    But there is a third story about Islam that most of the mainstream media is not reporting, and that is a very significant story indeed. It involves not just the conversion of one Muslim, like Allam, but many, indeed millions. The truth is, there has recently been a tsunami of Muslim converts to Christianity.

    In a recent article Andrew Walden offers some amazing statistics: “In every hour, 667 Muslims convert to Christianity. Every day, 16,000 Muslims convert to Christianity. Every year, 6 million Muslims convert to Christianity.” These are some remarkable figures indeed.

    As already mentioned, the rise in numbers in Islam is mainly due to demographics, not conversions. “This is more than the normal flow between two large religious communities. Islam can point to little in the way of recent conversions. Its claim to be the world’s fastest-growing religion stems mostly from the high birth rate in Islamic countries, whose infant mortality rates have been cut by the introduction of Western medicine. Christian growth is based on adult conversion. As leading Christian evangelist Wolfgang Simpson writes, ‘More Muslims have come to Christ in the last two decades than in all of history’.”

    Walden looks at a number of Muslim countries where significant conversion rates to Christianity are occurring. He also looks at Western nations where Muslims are leaving their faith: “Islam is also losing adherents in areas where Islamist harassment is heavy on the streets. The London Times estimates 15% of Muslims living in Western Europe have left Islam – 200,000 in the UK alone. Those who leave often face harassment, threats, and attack.

    In another recent article Joel Rosenberg also picks up on this issue, with what he calls the “untold story” of Muslims leaving the faith in droves. He says, “The God of the Bible is moving powerfully in the Middle East to draw men, women and children to His heart and adopt them into His family in record numbers. More Muslims have come to faith in Jesus Christ over the last thirty years – and specifically over the last seven to ten years – than at any other time in human history. There is a revival going on among the ancient Catholic, Coptic, and Chaldean churches. Today, the Church is being truly resurrected in the lands of its birth.

    The father was totally wrong. Islam doesnt say to kill your daughter, or to kill anyone .. you can’t force ANYONE TO DO SOMETHING THEY DONT WANT TO DO! the girl’s father is crazy..he’s not even a proper muslim.

    If Islam was wrong, no one would convert, and everyday people from other religions convert to Islam.

    People do many things. Just because they do them does not make it right.
    Please explain if Islam is so right why are apostates killed?
