Father Strangles 16-Year-Old Daughter for not Wearing Hijab
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.

Proving once again that afterlife belief and belief in a spirit world infects the real world in multiple and pernicious ways. How powerful a destructive force that can so distort the natural bond between a father and daughter. So powerful it even overrules his genetic imperative to protect and nurture his offspring. But that’s well established. For a religion that condones and justifies murderous suicide bombing, a father strangling one girl is child’s play. Life is ever-so-cheap in the Kingdom of Allah.
