Two British Muslims Get Life For Honor Killing
Azhar Nazir, 30, and his cousin Mohammed (surprise, surprise), 17, got life in prison for the "honor killing" of Samaira Nazir.
Azhar decided to murder his sister for honor's sake after she had the audacity to fall in love with and decide to marry a Afghani immigrant to Britain, rather than someone in the Pakistani "family circle."
I can't say I blame her.
Nazir told the Afghani: "We can get you anywhere if you get married, even if you are not in this country." They also told him that they believed only wanted to marry Samaira for her family's money.
Once Samaira found out, she tried to speak to her mother regarding what her brother and cousin had done, and an argument broke out.
Her two young nieces witnessed Samaira trying to leave the house in the middle of the argument with her mother, when her brother and cousin dragged her back into the house and stabbed her 18 times, until she was dead.
A neighbor heard Samiara screaming, and went to the door where the mother covered for her murderous son; she told the neighbor that Samira was simply "having a fit."
While these two sub-human scumbags received life sentences, unfortunately in Britain it means that they will be eligible for parole in 20 years for the Nazir, and 10 for Mohammed.
Said the Judge: "You claimed to have loved your sister but were guilty of orchestrating her murder.
The area Director of the Crown Prosecution service, Mr. Afzal, released this statement: "Samaira was murdered because she loved the wrong person, in her family's eyes. In that sense, it was an honour killing to protect the perceived status of the family, to mark their disapproval."
I hope they rot.
