In the past few days there has been a storm raging over the 16 year old death of Aqsa Parvez allegedly killed by her father in Toronto, Canada. You can read that story here. As Muslims we strongly condemn the killing of this young girl regardless of her refusal to wear the hijab. The Shariah (Islamic Law) teaches us that parents cannot beat their children at the age of 14 for refusing to pray the obligatory prayers. This is because at 14 they are adults and will be held accountable for themselves before Allah. So if parents cannot beat them at 14 for missing the prayer, then how about for something lower than that, this being the hijab?
Anyway this sad incident is now being exploited by many different groups including the CBC. Read here. Th CBC fails to mention that the Islamists and all those who are promoting Islam, if allowed, would have taken Muhammad Parvez into their custody, tried him under Islamic law and if found guilty, probably would have subjected him to life imprisonment with possible lashes in addition to say the least. This would have made him an example for others in the future. These cheap opportunists pounced on this tragedy and used it as their weapon to further their anti-Islamist agenda which includes whipping up hatred against Muslims and furthering their foolish stereotypes.
