Guilty verdict for ‘honor killings’

Much to my excitement a dark and primitive concept was shown to be intolerable  in Canada today as all members Shafia family are found guilty of first degree murder. Hamed Shafia, his second wife Tooba Mohammad Yahya, 42, and their eldest son, Hamed, 21 were arrested in July of 2011 for the murder of Hamed Shafia’s three daughters Zainab Shafia, 19, Sahar Shafia, 17, and Geeti Shafia, 13, and Hamed’s first wife Rona Amir Mohammed. All four were found drowned inside a car at the bottom of a Kingston Mills lock in an apparent ‘honor killing’.

The judge’s words for all three was music to my ears.

It is difficult to conceive of a more despicable, more heinous crime. The apparent reason behind these cold-blooded, shameful murders was that the four completely innocent victims offended your completely twisted concept of honour, a notion of honour that is founded upon the domination and control of women.”

Staring hard at the defendants, the judge said:

“There is nothing more honourless than the deliberate murder of, in the case of Mohammad Shafia, three of his daughters and his wife, in the case of Tooba Yahya, three of her daughters and a stepmother to all her children, in the case of Hamed Shafia, three of his sisters and a mother.”

Couldn’t have put it better myself. A good day for justice and modern morality.
