Pakistani man shoots sister dead for marrying a Christian

Pakistani man shoots sister dead for marrying a Christian October 6, 2016

In a video just released by Associated Press, Mubeen Rajhu, above, claims he was goaded by work colleagues into killing his 18-year-old sister, Tasleem.
According to this report, in August, Rajhu walked into the kitchen of his family’s home carrying a pistol and, with his mother and another sister looking on, raised the gun and fired a single shot into his sister Tasleem’s head.
In the AP video, recorded in a jailhouse in Lahore, Rajhu said:

I could not let it go. It was all I could think about. I had to kill her. There was no choice. There was no yelling, no shouting. I just shot her dead.

He explained that he had been “bullied” into committing the murder by co-workers at the steel mill at which he was employed. They would to mock Rajhu, telling him that it was unacceptable that his sister was keeping company with a Christian.
Ali Raza, one of Rajhu’s co-workers, laughed about how easy it was to get Rajhu riled up.

He used to tell us, ‘If you don’t stop, I will kill myself. Stop!’ The guys here told him, ‘It would be better to kill your sister.’

Rajhu purchased a gun and six days later killed Tasleem. He claims his sister had it coming. He told her on numerous occasions that she was bringing dishonour to the family by fraternising with a Christian.
Moreover, he made her swear on the Koran that she would never marry the Christian man. Tasleem swore that she wouldn’t marry him, but went ahead anyway, despite the fact that he warned her that he would not be able to show his face at the mill.
Shockingly, Rajhu’s father, said to “shattered” by the killing, is blaming his daughter.

My family is destroyed. Everything is destroyed only because of this shameful girl. Even after death I am destroyed because of her.

Others in the poor neighborhood along a section of northern Lahore sympathise with the father – and lionise Rajhu.
Babar Ali, a neighbor, said:

I am proud of this man. He has done the right thing to kill her. When the news spreads, they will praise this man.

“Honour killings” have been on the rise in Pakistan and women are victims, by far, more than men.
In 2015, the number of honor killings rose for the third straight year with 1,184 killed. Of that total, 1,096 of the victims were women.
The problem has become such an epidemic that lawmakers have passed bills that would close the loophole in murder laws that often allow suspects in “honour killings” to go scot-free.
Under the proposed law, perpetrators – even if forgiven by family members – would still have to serve a minimum sentence of 12-and-a-half years.

    Eye for an eye … tooth for a tooth should be applied.

  • The true voice of Islam is here made abundantly clear. Such delightfully honest opinions from the murderer’s relatives and neighbours. A good thing this Religion of Peace will never import this type of attitude to Europe, isn’t it? Please excuse any apparent Racism, Bigotry and Fascism you may inadvertently have detected in this rather vicious little comment of mine.

  • Muslim men can marry one to four infidels but Muslim women may only marry Muslim men. And a woman who is guilty of ‘lewdness’ is to be punished. At least according to the Quran. Does the Quran have anything to do with Islam? Opinions vary.
    Islam is an embarrassment to the human species.

    I just listened to Utube “10 things you did not know about isLame” And they went on & on about how the KaKaran does not say to kill or dress in a tent. So if true then why is it enforced so harshly???? Its just like xtians claiming the buyBull is about love!!! Well to both I say BY YOUR ACTIONS YOU SHALL BE JUDGED and so far as a group you are ALL psychotic, bigoted, women hating, intolerant aholes!!!

    Ignorance and stupidity all religions feed on this with their followers.
    I hazard a guess that this man and these neighbourly people are fundamentally ignorant first and stupidly religious second.
    it is much like the Pakistani boy that chopped/sawed his own hand off a few months ago. His neighbours praised him for his devout Islamic beliefs and ‘faith’. They are too ignorant and stupid to arrive at any other conclusion.
    Shameful all of it.

    Trouble at Mill, That poor girl, to be talked about like that by men who should be making Steel.
    They are all guilty of murder and should all go to prison along with the Father. Peace be upon her may she rest in Peace.

    The preferred deity failed yet again to save one of its supporters. This Jesus is really useless.

    The nasty shit needs to be fast tracked to paradise with a bullet between his eyes after his dick has been knawed off by a starved rat so that he can’t fuck his 72 virgins.

  • More evidence that Islam is not a ‘religion of peace’ ‘Islam’ means ‘submission’, in this case submission to religious prejudice.

    I don’t understand why Muslim women don’t accidentally on purpose suffocate any male offspring at birth. Otherwise the misogynistic little bastards, once imbued with the lovely religion of murder and mayhem, will only cause their mothers and sisters and any other women, unfortunate enough to cross their paths, any amount of misery for the rest of their lives.
