MISSISSAUGA, Ont. – A 57-year-old man from Mississauga, Ont., has been charged with murder after his 16-year-old daughter died overnight.
Aqsa Parvez was rushed to hospital Monday morning in critical condition after a man made a 911 call in which he allegedly said he killed his daughter.
The teenager died in hospital late Monday night.
Peel Regional Police have charged her father, Muhammad Parvez, 57, with murder – a specific degree will be determined later.
He made a brief court appearance Tuesday morning and was remanded in custody pending another court appearance Wednesday.
Aqsa Parvez’s friends have said she had been arguing with her devout Muslim family for months over her reluctance to wear a hijab.
I find the headline “slain ‘muslim’ teen” quite offensive. How often do we see headlines stating “christian” or “jewish” faiths. Why must we put a negative spin and promote hostility and have people believe Islam is to blame.
The headline be unfair if Islam had nothing to do with this murder, but the fact is Islam is entirely why this murder occurred.
From the CBC Website:
“Shariah law, which – as practised in the Middle East – allows the death penalty for adultery, requires alimony to be paid for only three months, and tends to award custody of children to their fathers.”
The newspaper doesn’t put a “negative spin” on Islam; the newspaper is just stating a fact. Islam puts a negative spin on Islam.
