UK Paki Muslim parents murdered their daughter for being too Westernized

FINALLY, JUSTICE FOR SHAFILEA AHMED

Nine years after their daughter Shafilea vanished, Iftikhar and Farzana Ahmed have gone on trial accused of murder. The court heard that police made a breakthrough in the case when Shafilea’s sister told them she saw them kill the 17-year-old.

DAILY MAIL  Shafilea had wanted to go to university to study law and have boyfriends like other girls her age, a jury was told. But her parents are alleged to have resorted to violence in trying to force her to follow a traditional lifestyle, sending her to Pakistan for an arranged marriage.

There she swallowed bleach and was flown back to Britain for medical treatment. She vanished from the family home in September 2003 just days after she enrolled at college and started a part-time job.

Her parents failed to report her missing, and the alarm was raised a week later by a teacher. Her decomposed body was found five months later in undergrowth on the banks of a river.

Andrew Edis, QC, prosecuting, said Shafilea had been ‘a thoroughly Westernised young British girl of Pakistani origin’ who was subjected to violence for refusing to conform to her parents’ expectations.  ‘The defendants, having spent the best part of 12 months trying to crush her will, realised they were never going to be able to succeed and finally killed her because her conduct dishonoured the family, bringing shame on them,’ he added.

The eldest of five children, Shafilea was a keen student at her school in Warrington, Cheshire, and enjoyed trips to shopping centres and wearing Western clothes, Chester Crown Court was told. ‘In particular she wanted to have boyfriends – as most 16 and 17-year-old girls do,’ Mr Edis said.

Friends and teachers became concerned when she went to school with injuries that she said had been caused by her parents, Mr Edis added. Shafilea then began to run away from home.

In February 2003, she fled in the night and attempted to cut her ties with her parents entirely, only for her father to ‘abduct’ her in his taxi when he saw her walking to school, the prosecutor said.

Mr Edis said it was at that point that her parents put together a ‘hastily arranged’ plan to fly to Pakistan with Shafilea and persuade her into an arranged marriage with a cousin.

Accused: Iftikhar Ahmed, left, and Farzana Ahmed, right, are said to have killed their 17-year-old daughter because she refused to obey them

However while staying with her grandparents in rural Pakistan, she drank from a bottle of bleach, causing severe damage to her throat. ‘If it was not a suicide attempt, it was an act of desperation,’ Mr Edis said. ‘It put an end to the idea that she was going to get married and live in Pakistan.’

Shafilea flew home in May and spent the summer receiving regular hospital treatment before enrolling at sixth-form college to study  A-levels while also working in telesales. The court heard she resumed her Western lifestyle, bringing her into fresh conflict with her parents’ ‘concept of shame and honour’.

SISTER Alesha Ahmed kept quiet for seven years and only told police when she was arrested over a robbery

She was last seen alive on the evening of September 11 when her 49-year-old mother picked her up from work.

A week later, Mr Edis said, one of Shafilea’s teachers reported her missing after hearing that her sister Alesha had told friends her parents had killed her. But Alesha – then 15 – retracted her claim, and her parents insisted they did not know where Shafilea was.

Mr Edis said the family made no effort to find Shafilea and even put their home on sale.

Shafilea’s remains were found in February 2004 near Sedgwick in Cumbria, close to where the M6 leads north from Warrington. Mr Edis said analysis of the scene showed she had been dumped there shortly after going missing.

No more light was shed on her killing until two years ago when Alesha – then 22 – was arrested over a robbery at the family home. She later told police ‘she had witnessed the killing of her elder sister by her two parents, both of them acting together’, Mr Edis said.

  1. You people are so off topic. lol. First of, killing in the name of honour, or just killing by all means, IS wrong. You can not justify a killing..but just because it’s wrong does not mean people won’t do it. People from all over the world, regardless of their faith, race, nationality etc commit crimes. They kill, they rape, they do whatever but you can’t blame an entire country or religion for the actions of those few who choose to do wrong. Its you people, the narrow minded idiots of this planet, who provoke disharmony. All I ask of you, especially the administrator(s) of “BareNakedIslam”, is to go EDUCATE your self, because I’m hoping that maybe then, you would make a lesser fool out of yourself , and so that you can actually be some sort of use to this world.

  2. Islam has nothing to do with the killing of Shafilea Ahmed. Her parents are uneducated and illiterate criminals.
    When a ‘Baby P’ is killed by his parents or six innocent children burnt to death by their parents Mick Philpott and his wife, do we blame Christianity or the race of these murderers?
    Whenever it is someone who happens to be Muslim, why do we immediately target Islam as the cause of the crime?
    These people were criminals of the worst kind and would have been so regardless of their colour, religion or nationality. The human race has all kinds of people. Judge each individual on their particular deeds.

      • You’re pathetic. If I knew your name, I swear man, I’d make a website just like yours , but on you, http://www.BareNaked(whatever your name is).com …On second thought though, I really wouldn’t do that. You know why?..Because I’m trying to be a much BETTER, and smarter person than you. I hope that you find peace and forgiveness with in yourself.

    • Oh we would live in our own sandbox, if your soldiers didnt come into our countries, bombing our homes. Our ‘sandboxes’ are destroyed, and Im sorry for the inconvenience , but we need a new home, so we chose to settle in yours. xoxo

  3. In Islam it is forbidden for a parent to kill their child for any reason even if they committed adultery. Don’t get me wrong they are punished but not put to death in Islam is forbidden to kill anyone unless ur at war. I’m not saying Muslims don’t do it they do kill their daughters for stupid things but it’s not the religion that tels them it’s there parents old ways. This was also the old ways for everyone not just the Muslims the ony thing is that most people found these old ways ridiculous but the middle east is a bit hard headed but they r getting there one baby step at a time

  4. This is RIDICULOUS! I’m not good at debates but use your fucking common sense. How can you blame an entire nation or the entire belief system for the actions of some people. Christianity, Islam, Buddhism are all religions and none of these religions teach or support killing/murder, wars etc…Islam teaches to RESPECT other religions, to not murder, to not steal, to not backbite , to not lie etc… “Muslims” who fail to do so, are HYPOCRITES ( Muslims by name).

    Now , there have been cases where Christian parents have murdered/ and beaten up their daughters for bringing shame on the family- for similar reasons. Now maybe this is not common in the western society because we have an educated population that knows the consequences that follow but many people that come from these third world countries ( Pakistan, India, Malaysia etc) don’t know much so therefore it is easier for them to commit such a crime.

    THERE IS SO MUCH I WANT TO SAY but I really can’t at the moment. This arguement here saddens me. To see that people so narrow minded still exist.

    Okay lets say Islam does nothing but create chaos and destroy every chance their is to create peace…. WELL WTF is this WEB SITE DOING? IS IT CREATING PEACE? ( I KNOW IM GETTING OFF TOPIC BUT W.E)

    Now people listen, all of you guys have a religion or a belief. Christians, Muslims, Jews, Hindus, Athiests, believe in peace. If you have a religion and you are here to Judge other religions such as Islam, I say you judge your self first. On the other hand if you DO NOT believe in Peace, well then you are FUCKED. Get help !

    • MollY: all i can say is NICELY SAID! well-done!! these pathetic narrow minded idiots above obviously need to go an educate themselves. You vile lot go educate yourself on history and religion and culture then come back and chat out your arses!!! Lol sado’s

    • Ah, more Moslem taqiyya and kitman from some Moslem or Communist shill – or, at the most charitable, some dhimmi or ignorant Westerner who should know better!!!!

      To ‘Molly': go read the Qu’rân, the Hadiths et al. Perhaps then you’ll know better than to write such DRIVEL!!!!! The same applies to ‘Zoolash’!!…

  5. This is why I cannot physically stand pakis. I’m sick of seeing scum disrespecting westernised society, when in fact they chose to live here!

    • It’s not just Pakistanis: the same applies to ANY AND ALL Moslems, regardless of where they’re from; particularly as they get more radicalised from places like Pakistan, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and ALL of Moslem Africa!!!

  6. Ha. Sadly, I knew it was to force her to marry her cousin, before I even finished the article. That is so they can bring more family members in to the UK and with them, then comes mom & dad, brothers and sisters etc., etc. on the back of one family members. More people to rip off the state via the dole and social housing.

    BTW, Those of you who are outside of Europe, may not be aware, that many come for the state money, all the whilst working on the side. With their Euro money and money from under the table, allows them to build very modern second homes in their home countries. Specifically Pakistani’s, who pull their children out of school for long periods of time to go back to their true home.

    It was what the late great, British prophet Ray Honeyford (Honeyford is an IMPORTANT name, that all of us in the West should know and learn from.) pointed out and objected to, and was drummed out of his job, by Muslim extremist and Leftist dhimmies.

  7. I don’t really know for sure, but my best guess here would be that “Little Sister” didn’t speak out and testify against the filth maggot muzzy scum that are called “parents” because she was very very afraid of being their next victim! May God Bless and keep her for finally stepping up and taking the witness stand in this case. And as for the “parents”, may they be quickly dispatched to that EVERLASTING HELLFIRE to which they say we infidels will go!!

    • Why are you cherry picking the story? She’s just a big a scum as her parents, she kept quiet on purpose ALL THIS TIME. She only spoke out to give the police something to get them off her case for playing a part in a robbery!!

      • Actually, I considered that possibility.

        It’s also possible that her arrest for robbery gave her the police custody protection she would need if she were to rat out her parents and wanted to stay ALIVE while doing it.

        (sarc on) Of course, that COULDN’T POSSIBLY be the case, could it? There’s no way this girl would have kept quiet out of fear for her own life. She just HAS to be trying to get out of a robbery charge. (sarc off)

  8. There is NO PUNISHMENT in Sharia law for parents who murder their own children.

    AMERICANS, is Sharia law OK?

    No. Sharia is barbaric, draconian, discriminatory, supremacist.

  9. Not only did these sick, retarded muslim savages kill their own daughter in front of their OTHER daughter, but they chopped her up as well. THEY CHOPPED-UP THEIR OWN DAUGHTER!

  10. If you wish your daughter to grow up to be the chattel of a 7th century barbarian, don’t move to a civilized country. Simples.

  11. A miracle of nature that such a pretty and intelligent girl comes from the dna of those two monkey muzzies, but it happens occaisionally, evolution. But the lower subspecies scum fuks saw their more highly advanced daughter as a threat to the mouth breathing idiocy of their lifestyle so they snubbed her out.Hey liberals, do the world a favor and snub yourselves out too, ok?

  12. I don’t think there any coincidences that she was last seen on September 11 when her mother picked her up from work.

    Typical paki bums!!!

  13. POLICE DETECTIVE HANDBOOK

    Chapter 5: Missing Muslim Children

    If a child of a Muslim Family goes missing in mysterious circumstances, arrest the parents immediately.

  14. My mind still “boggles” (I’ve used this word before) that muslims think it is less dishonourable to go to jail for murder, than it is to kill one of their own. And for their children not wanting to agree to an arranged marriage.

    Any religion or culture for that matter!

    • Please, this practice doesn’t have anything to do with Islam, it is actually Indian culture which these Pakis follow. There are more baby girls killed in India and more female honour killings in India than anywhere else in the world. The practice of burning the wife alive when the husband dies is also an Indian tradition, which is still practiced in India, even though it is outlawed by the gov. The British had to ban it completely. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sati_%28practice%29 read about it yourself.

      • Dan, who cares where it came from, it is being practiced now by Muslims all over the world. We never hear about any Hindus honor killing their daughters in the West. Can you back up your claims with something more reliable than Wiki?

      • Actually, the abortion rates relative to girl-foetuses in both Canada and the USA HAVE gone up very significantly compared to those for boys – and indeed it seems to be that the Hindu (and also Chinese, to a lesser extent) families are hugely responsible for that.

        Granted that Hindus don’t honour-kill their daughters, it IS a very worrying trend I do have to point out, dear Ms. BNI.

      • Sorry, I didn’t mean to throw a monkey wrench into the mess; however, it is important to note that there was at least a grain of truth in Dan B.’s point.

      • Its not possible, the hindus’s never killed there daughter. That 1000 year old practice has nothing to do what muslims do day in day out.

        Contrary to what you said quran instructs muslims to do exactly written in quran, so this and other violent behavior is consistent across all muslim countries.

  15. The Muslims that are brave enough to want to assimilate and adopt western values and freedoms are swiftly killed off by their own flesh and blood. It takes a perverted mind to murder the child you are supposed to love and protect in order to restore ‘honor’. Honor is loving your child by protecting her, not snuffing the life out of her.

    I hope they rot in prison and are treated with the same dignity sex offenders are.

      • Correct and I should have said child molesters not sex offenders. No special dietary food or Korans either!

  16. Trial, convict, send them to jail and then if released, deport the scum back to Pakistan. Stop allowing the immigration of muslims who are not interested or willing to integrate ever.

    • You forgot to mention: seize all their assets immediately following conviction by the Court.

      If the justice system applied the asset seizure clause as a result of conviction, many would think twice before doing the deed. Many would also thing twice before emigrating.

      • If I recall correctly, wasn’t it the British government that actually invited all these Pakis to the UK in the 1950’s? The vast majority of them (95%+) are from a remote place in Pakistan called Mirpur and belong to a very small ethnic group in Pakistan that not even many people there know of. Completely uneducated, uncultured and an embarrassment to even the majority of Pakistanis.

  17. A horrible and sadly, a growing phenomena as muslim communities in the West grow, and you can safely bet it is far more widespread than what the media actually reports. That girl was just beautiful. How parents could possibly do this I will never understand. It is a muslim thing, and this incident really got me thinking when I saw this on Vlad Tepes’ Blogspot earlier today.

    In short, the suspect’s name, i’m sure will ring a few bells here because it is the same name a certain muslim troll used when posting comments here. Iftikhar Ahmad of the London School of Islamics, and his constant rants about the need for taxpayer funded, muslim schools for muslim students (segregated, of course) in the UK. What really stood out in my mind was his absurd claim that honor killings were a Judeo-Christian, and Hindu custom, not a muslim one (yea, right, Iftick). That fool has been posting here off and on for the past 2 years.

    Being that this thread is about an honor killing, the name being the same, I did some sleuthing on the internet to see if it was the same person, and therefore call him out on his hypocracy. It isn’t the same person. The suspect’s last name is spelled Ahmed, the troll’s Ahmad.

    I found a BBC article from Sept. 2007, which featured our favorite troll. at the time, his age was given as 68 yrs. The suspect’s age is given as 52 or 53 or something in the Daily Mail article.

    The only thing I came up with besides discovering a Dr. Iftikhar Ahmad that lives a mere 90 miles away from me (Oh God! Nooo!), was a photo of our dear troll in the BBC article which I shall attempt to post a link to below, if anybody is curious, He he!

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/7123723.stm

    Hope it works, i’m a passenger on the high tech shortbus, lol.

  18. The sister arrested for a robbery at the family home?? Was that the home in which she and her family had been living at the time – or the one in which she was CURRENTLY living in?? Was it her parents that charged her?

    If it was the former home and she was charged relative to non-family people now living there (since the place was sold by her parents), then it gets extremely interesting…

    May it be that – if she’s telling the truth (who knows, given that she first accused her parents, then retracted the accusation – and now, after arrest, has placed it again!?!??)!! – that if her parents be guilty, they’ll be exposed as the MONSTER-Moslems they are and humiliated for who they are!!!

    God Grant that England’s people will overthrow their TREASONOUS, TRAITOROUS government and its associated arms and adherents!!!

    • I also hope that she – even if in secret! – had renounced Islam before dying… Her smile and facial expression seems not to be that of a Moslem!

      • When I looked at her picture I also thought that she had too much life in her to be part of the death cult.

        The fact that she had the strength of character to withdraw from the evilness of Islam makes this even more of a tragedy.

  19. Why, oh why, did they ever leave Pakistan if they wanted to raise their daughter in the traditional Islamic way? They wanted all the dole that the British government would give out to them, but did not think of the consequences — that their daughter might want to be Westernized. LOL. They should’ve just stayed in Pakistan!

    • To all the racist ignorant people posting on here. Honour killings are not acceptable in islam. In the ancient pakistani culture, maybe. So do not jump to conclusions when you do not know the first thing about islam and because you’ve heard crap about it in the media. Islam means peace. N yes jihad is allowed but only in defence. If muslims are forced to not be allowed to practise islam then yes you may fight back. And so obviously terrorism is not allowed either. These pakis may say their muslim but if their not following their religion what good is it saying their muslim and making islam look bad. Its funny how when a black or white person commits crime, they’re just black or white criminals, but when its an pakistani or any relating ethicity its not ‘asian commited crime’ Its ‘muslim commited crime!’ :/
      As to the people below saying..you should have stayed in pakistan. I agree. If your too traditional to live in a western society. But do not talk rubbish like as if its a normal thing in islam to commit ‘honour killings. It most definately is not!

      • Listen, “ak”: We know more about Islam that you want to know or believe!!!!

        Many of us have lived under that monstrous system or know people who have!!! [My ancestors suffered under both Arabs and Turks for a total of many centuries if not over a millennium!!!] Most of us have read at least substantial parts of one or both of the Qu’rân and the Hadiths – and we know the mindset of Moslems!!! We also know of Islam’s most SORDID history and its infinitely MANY atrocities!!!

        It’s been pretty much verified that Islamic régimes have killed off a full 275,000,000 people over the 1,400-year course of its existence!!! [Only atheism has an even grimmer record via the crimes of Nazism (10,000,000 in peacetime plus 40,000,000 via World War II) and Communism (120,000,000 in PEACETIME!!!), adding up to 170,000,000 over the course of almost 95 years.]

        Next, the proper word for ‘peace’ in Arabic is salaam. To boot, Islam has been MAKING WAR – jihad war!!! – for 1,400 years – it’s most categorically NEVER, EVER been a “religion of peace:”!!!!. [For more information, please see http://www.thereligionofpeace.com - I'd LOVE to see you try to logically disprove its statistics.]

        To boot, it’s NOT only Pakistan that has this “honour” culture. Turks, Jordanians, Saudi-Arabs, Bangladeshis, Malaysians, Nigerians, Mauritanians Albanians and Boshñaci (Turkified Serbs) – among others! – ALL have that same “culture” of “honour killings” as well as Female-Genital-Mutilation!!!! This should ALL refute your taqiyya and kitman, which you can take elsewhere!!!!!

        Probably this is painful for you to read or hear; however, as long as you blindly insist on following that MONSTER “prophet” Mohammed, you’ll ALWAYS HAVE PROBLEMS, GUARANTEED!!!! Not until you renounce Islam can you and your peoples really hope to have a better future!!!

      • Neither the colour black nor white asian or what ever you wanna call it,label it ,the the end of the day it’s man that causes all these problems,and crazy acts,nothing more then just crazy mindless people,don’t colour it with religion,thats how many wars were started in the begining ,some things never change.

      • Its strange 99%of these honor killing, grooming for sex, terrorism act all this wrong is done by ONLY muslims, and you dont want to tag it as muslim crime? Do you know why they do all this on a Christian land, because this is a non muslim country. Open your eyes to see clearly beyond your secular thinking, muslims are no secular, they are racist to the maximum level.

      • This is an animal phenominon unheard of in the UK for the most part, we are being brought down to ritualistic inbred human degradation by a culture which no-one apart from the odd liberal mental case freak could possibly consider reasonable & constructive. Ban the Islamic Infiltration, let us at least try to save our children, our country & our culture from these vultures from hell!!

      • It was the Arab Muslims and Ottomons who brought us Europeans out of the dark ages. It was the Muslims who protected jews, it was the Muslims who never persecuted christians and christians did to their own and jews i.e Spain. It was the christians who did the crusades, it was the christians and west who enslaved Africans, massacred and raped people of other nations, it was your people who are inferior and naive and ingorant and uneducated to know superior Islam and Muslims are compared to you. Fact is Islam is spreading and there is NOTHING you can do about it. If girls did not have sex with low loved ans shame their parents then honor killings wouldnt happen. Your people have sexual dieases, rape is high, adultery rampatn, teenage pregnancies rampant, etc yet Muslims are progressing and defending, what u lot done for the world? exactly..Am a part-time model who converted to Islam last year. See we do have brains. Bye bye lol

      • Thanks BNI for posting the garbage that the followers of the “religion of peace” like to leave every now and then. Helps me clarify my definition of stupid.

      • NG, I could post ten times more of those comments than I do, but I’d have to delete most of the foul language and threats.

      • Perhaps you should let a few MORE of those pass in, so we can ALL see what we’re up against, if we cannot already tell.

      • There is nothing honorable about killing–but actually to the contrary of what you said–these type of killings are still alive and well in many muslim communities such as that in Malaysia, Saudi etc. These killings are not uncommon at all. I hope these parents get death just as they gave it.

      • if honor killing is not aceptable in islam then why is it still done. a man killed his 2 daughters in cananda for being too westernized and said he would do it again.it was an honor killing to kill them .to me he done more dishonor to his family by killing the young girls.where is the honor for killing your daughters for wanting to belike normal young girls.
        if you don’t want them to become westernize don’t move to a western country stay in your sand box and live like in the stone age

    • U cheaky shit how were they on the dole they own a house u bum ur kind go on de dole eating the tax of over 10 000 pakistani’s in the uk the only reason they come to england is to give the kids a better and more stedy way of living not to try and let them become westernized wy shuld we accept your way of living if you dnt wana accept our way of living

      • jawad, when you are in OUR countries, you follow OUR rules of behavior or stay the hell in your own islamic cesspools. And don’t speak in Texting here.

      • Jawad, (whatever),

        You stupid moron, can you even speak english properly? Let me guess you must be the one who thinks UK- white girls, wants to have sex with white girls, protect – by killing them, keeping them in black tent burqa, so that no one else look at them.

        GTF out of this country, your guys have already messed up this country big time, with you dirty getto, dirty hygiene. If killing is your way of life then live where your guys live, go to any muslim country, why come to a christian land. Go back to your wonderful land of peace.
