Canada: Muslim accused of beating daughter who refused to wear hijab


We hear a great deal about Muslim women in the West who are supposedly harassed and discriminated against for wearing the hijab. That may happen in some cases, although such claims have often been fabricated; in any case, such loutish behavior is never justified. But who is standing for women who are harassed and discriminated against, or worse, for not wearing the hijab?
Does anyone remember Aqsa Parvez, whose Muslim father choked her to death with her hijabafter she refused to wear it? Or Aqsa and Amina Muse Ali, a Christian woman in Somalia whom Muslims murdered because she wasn’t wearing a hijab? Or the Muslim woman in Italy who was raped and beaten by her husband, and forced to wear a burqa? Or the 40 women who were murdered in Iraq in 2007 for not wearing the hijab; or Alya Al-Safar, whose Muslim cousin threatened to kill her and harm her family because she stopped wearing the hijab in Britain; or Amira Osman Hamid, who faced whipping in Sudan for refusing to wear the hijab; or the Egyptian girl, also named Amira, who committed suicide after being brutalized for her family for refusing to wear the hijab; or the Muslim and non-Muslim teachers at the Islamic College of South Australia who were told that they had to wear the hijab or be fired; or the women in Chechnya whom police shot with paintballs because they weren’t wearing hijab; or the women also in Chechnya who were threatened by men with automatic rifles for not wearing hijab; or the elementary school teachers in Tunisia who were threatened with death for not wearing hijab; or the Syrian schoolgirls who were forbidden to go to school unless they wore hijab; or the women in Gaza whom Hamas has forcedto wear hijab; or the women in Iran who protested against the regime by daring to take off their legally-required hijab; or the women in London whom Muslim thugs threatened to murder if they didn’t wear hijab; or the anonymous young Muslim woman who doffed her hijab outside her home and started living a double life in fear of her parents, or all the other women and girls who have been killed or threatened, or who live in fear for daring not to wear the hijab?
“Man accused of beating daughter who refused to wear hijab,” CBC News, October 26, 2017:
Gatineau police have charged a man for allegedly beating his teenage daughter over the course of more than a year because she refused to wear a hijab.
The 35-year-old father is facing one count each of assault, assault with a weapon and uttering death threats, police said in a news release Thursday.
In what police described as a case of so-called “honour-based” violence, the father began the series of assaults upon learning his daughter had removed her religious head covering when she left the family home. …
