The practice of “honor killing” is sickening enough, but this horrifying story sets a new benchmark in depravity:
Woman raped before honor killing: court.
* Why was she raped by her relatives before she was killed in a 2 1/2 hour ordeal? Nobody seems to have asked the question. In Iran, young girls are routinely raped before they are executed, because virgins don’t go to hell in the twisted Islamo-way of thinking. But in this case nobody even asked the question. The fact that it is actually sanctioned in Islam is too bizarre for the western mind to even contemplate.
* But of course all of this has ‘nothing to do with Islam’- you Islamophobe, you! Its entirely a ‘cultural thing’ –
* Since only 99.9 % of honor killings are committed by good Muslims in the West, why tarnish the good name of Islam with such a barbaric practice?
LONDON (Reuters) – A Kurdish woman was brutally raped, stamped on and strangled by members of her family and their friends in an “honor killing” carried out at her London home because she had fallen in love with the wrong man.
Banaz Mahmod, 20, was subjected to the 2-1/2 hour ordeal before she was garroted with a bootlace. Her body was stuffed into a suitcase and taken about 100 miles to Birmingham where it was buried in the back garden of a house. Her badly decomposed body was found in April 2006, three months after the killing.
Last month a jury found her father Mahmod Mahmod, 52, and his brother Ari Mahmod, 51, guilty of murder after a three-month trial. Their associate Mohamad Hama, 30, had earlier admitted killing her. On Thursday at a pre-sentence hearing for Hama, the Old Bailey heard details about Banaz’s last moments.
Prosecutors said the three convicted men, along with two other suspects who are still at large, had carried out the killing fearing that the authorities were closing in on them. They believed Banaz had brought shame on the family by leaving her husband, an Iraqi Kurd she had been forced to marry at 17, and falling in love with Rahmat Suleimani, an Iranian Kurd.
Her former unnamed partner had raped her as well as repeatedly beating her, the court heard.
He is unnamed, you see; because ‘his privacy must be respected’
Three sisters were found stabbed to death in the Gaza Strip on Sunday, raising suspicion they were killed by relatives because of suspected immoral behavior, a human rights organization said.
