Honour Killing is Murderous Madness.

Mohammad Shafia, 58, his 41-year-old wife, Tooba Mohammad Yahya, and their son, Hamed Mohammad Shafia, 20, stand trial for their mutual participation in a cruel, outrageous murder.

Who did they murder?  The rest of their family!  The father murdered his 3 daughters and his barren first wife  who was also their mother’s helper.  She lived in the home in a polygamous marriage with her husband, her husband’s second wife, their son and their three daughters.

Assisting in this barbarism was the girls’ brother, killing his sisters, and the girls’ mother, killing her daughters.  This disgusting act took place in Kingston Mills, Ontario, not far from Canada’s capital city, Ottawa.

Killing with a bullet in the head is at least quick and painless.  The four “honour murdered” women did not have that comparative blessing.

Kingston police constable Brent White was first on the scene of a car submerged in the historic Rideau Canal, and immediately thought that pranksters had stolen the car and dumped it in the canal as a major act of vandalism.  This was proven to be a pleasant image compared to the ugly truth that was to unfold.

Police divers were disgusted by the scene they found in the submerged car.  Eldest daughter Zainab was floating over the front seat, her back held to the ceiling by her body’s buoyancy.  Thirteen year old Geeti was clinging to the driver’s seat headrest, seventeen year old Sahar and 50 year old Rona sat belted into the back seat.

Mohammad perpetrated this slaughter for a reason that to him justified his barbaric actions.  The teenage girls wanted to date boys and have boyfriends.

On a surreptitious police wiretap during the investigation into the murders, Shafia was heard to say, “Even if they hoist me up onto the gallows, nothing is more dear to me than my honour.  Let’s leave our destiny to God, and may God never make me, you or your mother honourless…There is nothing more valuable than our honour.”

I often wonder why our Canadian young people are risking their lives and limbs in Afghanistan.  The actions of this family who came here from there make it obvious that we ought to get out of there as quickly as possible, and leave them to their culture.

Canada should require that immigrants commit to Canadian values before they are permitted to immigrate and make a life here.  That’s what my ancestors did when they immigrated from Europe more than 100 years ago.  We don’t go to Afghanistan and try to force our ways on them.  Why should we have to accept their cultural abominations here?

One final, off subject kvetch: We have mounties wearing turbans.  If you want to be true to your religion and wear a turban, find some other work than the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.  If you want to join the RCMP, back off on your religious rituals and commitments and wear the proudly historic mountie hat.  That’s my take on it.
