Waqas Parvez Now Charged in the Honor Killing of his Sister Aqsa Parvez

Aqsa’s Brother Charged
26 year old joins father in possible honor killing of [his sister] 16 year old [Aqsa Parvez]


The shocking murder of Mississauga teen Aqsa Parvez took another disturbing twist yesterday when Peel Regional Police arrested her older brother and charged him with first-degree murder.

Waqas Parvez, 26, now joins his father Muhammad Parvez, 57, before the courts on pre-meditated murder charges in the Dec. 10, 2007 strangling death of the 16-year-old high school student who friends say did not want to wear the traditional Muslim Hijab head scarf and was rebellious against the strict Muslim rules laid down inside her family home.

At odds with her situation at home, she had been living at a friend’s house in the days preceding her slaying.

The Crown will now attempt to prove to a jury that it was that resistance to old-world-thinking, and her embracing a Canadian lifestyle, culture and friends, that resulted in the Pakistani-born Grade 11 Applewood Heights Secondary School student being murdered in a deliberate and thought-out manner. […]

[…]Police upgraded the charge against her taxi driver father from second-degree murder to first-degree murder — the same charge her brother now faces.

On June 18, English stated: “I said from the beginning that her brother has culpability in his sister’s murder and my view on that has not changed. He’s living with this and I am sure there are some other people living with this as well.”

Eight days later, detectives took the brother into custody.

Meanwhile, it’s difficult for Canadians to accept that such a thing could happen here, but the reality is honour killings do happen in other parts of the world on a regular basis. In fact, in Germany alone, there have been 48 such killings in recent years.

“Honour murders are a real problem and can involve both religious and cultural factors,” said Stephen Brown, a columnist with Los Angeles-based FrontPage Magazine, who has researched and written extensively on the subject. “People need to understand this mindset before they can understand why this happens.” […]

    I’m continually surprised to see that progressives, in the fight between multiculturalism and feminism, always allow women to die.

    These are not “honour killings;” there is no honour in slaughtering your family members – those whom you ought to protect.

    The worst of these murders is that we are speaking of relatives killing relatives, who instead of being loved are, destroyed by religious or cultural considerations. Of course, Islam plays a part as the submission to God it ensures, obliges to all people to fulfill his commands, whatever the costs. Really shameful…

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host - by the Divine Power of God - cast into hell, satan and all the evil spirits, who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
