Apparently, the woman was wearing Muslim garb. I guess it isn’t safe for Muslims to live in America. They should all leave.
NJ 101.5 – A young woman was killed and her husband, a Harvard Ph.D. student, was wounded by gunshots while they were pushing their 3-year-old son’s stroller late at night, police and family members said. The child was not hit.
The husband, Kashif Pervaiz, told authorities there were three attackers, according to Pervaiz’s childhood friend, Hyder Kahn. Nasish Noorani of Brooklyn, N.Y., was walking the few blocks from her sister’s home to her father’s home in Boonton when thegunfire erupted, authorities said. Noorani was killed and Pervaiz was shot four times, police said.
Family members said Noorani was a native of Karachi, Pakistan, while Pervaiz was originally from Brooklyn, N.Y. The couple married six years ago in Boonton, a suburban community about 30 miles from New York City that is a large Pakistani-American enclave.
Noorani was wearing traditional Pakistani clothing at the time of the shooting, but family members and police said they did not believe it was a bias act.
Waj Kahn, a first cousin of Noorani, said in the 15 years he’s lived in Boonton, he has never experienced any ethnic bias. The husband’s brother, Mansoor Hassan of Brooklyn, told The Associated Press that the family was waiting for answers about why they were shot, and that he didn’t believe there were any witnesses.
