Yes, I actually think this is more terrible than the shootings I wrote about yesterday.
Girl, 16, dies after hijab dispute with father
The 16-year-old Mississauga girl who was allegedly strangled by her father in a dispute over her refusal to wear the hijab has died.
Aqsa Parvez, a Grade 11 student at Applewood Heights, succumbed to her injuries late last night, Peel Regional Police said today.
The girlâ€™s 57-year-old father, Muhammad Parvez, has been charged with muder. Aqsaâ€™s 26-year-old brother, Waqas Parvez, has been charged with obstructing police.
Friends believe Aqsa (seen above in a personal photo) was the victim of a dispute over the teenager’s desire to be more western.
This is not in Saudi Arabia or Iran for god’s sake. It’s Canada. (So you kanuks can stop making fun of us here in the U.S. for a short while.)
