Just two words could get the three members of a Muslim family that killed the husband’s three daughters and his first wife out of jail.
MW News The family claims that their guilty verdict was due to “cultural stereotyping” and that they don’t deserve a minimum of 25 years in prison. The family believes that those involved with the trial were biased against Islamic culture, i.e. Islamophobic, and that they were denied a fair hearing. Apparently, the justice system agrees with them, as they’re likely to receive a new trial under completely different circumstances that are sure to go in their favor.
When Muslim couple and their son brutally slaughtered the father’s beautiful daughters and first wife for refusing Islamic tradition, the world thought democracy would deliver justice for the murdered girls.
In 2012, Hamad Shafia, his father Mohammad, and his mother Tooba were sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 25 years for the gruesome murders of Zainab, 19, Sahar, 17, Geeti, 13, and 50-year-old Rona Amir, Mohammad’s first wife. However, now that they’ve appealed to the judge for a new trial, it proves that Muslim privilege is rampant in Canada.
NATIONAL POST “God curse them. May the devil shit on their graves,” said Muslim father after he ‘honor’ killed his 3 daughters and first wife.” In the days after Mohammad Shafia’s murdered his three daughters, because they had “dishonoured him by consorting with boys,” jurors at his murder trial were told.
The Star reports that the Afghani trio slaughtered the four female relatives and attempted to make their murders look like a car accident, piling the bodies in a vehicle and disposing of it in a canal in Toronto. They claimed to have killed the girls because they lacked modesty and pursued Western lifestyles, and the first wife was killed because she supported her daughters. However, as soon as the three realized that they were receiving a prison sentence for the honor killing, they had a fool-proof defense.
Canada’s Global News reports that Hamad’s lawyer, Scott Hutchison, is demanding a new trial with a different jury, claiming he has fresh evidence that might get his client off the hook. Hutchison argues that Hamad, the mastermind behind the murders, was not quite 18, as the court ruled years ago, but was just a few months shy.
Hutchison explains that regardless of Hamad’s ability and willingness to murder his own sisters, he should’ve been tried as a minor for the offenses, a route that could leave the man with a much lesser sentence. Of course, Hamad’s parents are along for the ride, expecting a new trial for all three. With his parents’ help, Hamad murdered the girls, piled their bodies in his car, and pushed it into a canal.
