I have often been critical of judges in this country. Today I compliment Justice Bruce Durno. Unlike the dhimmis at the red star, he calls it exactly what it was, a dishonour killing. He gave these two thugs life sentences. I would have preferred no parole for 25 years, but this is a significant expression of the horror of Canadians.
I cannot imagine killing my child or my sibling. In this case, as that of Abel, Aqsa's blood cried out to God. No one protected this child. Not her mother or the children's aid society, who returned her to her killer.
Let this serve as an example to others who believe their barbaric practices will be tolerated in Canada. Our new citizenship guide , introduce by HM Minister of Citizenship and Immigration says exactly that.
BRAMPTON, ONT. -- A “twisted, chilling and repugnant mindset” spurred the father and brother of Aqsa Parvez to strangle the teenager to death, a judge ruled Wednesday, before sentencing both men to life in prison with no chance of parole for 18 years.
The Crown has characterized Aqsa’s slaying as an honour killing and, in issuing his ruling Wednesday, Justice Bruce Durno said the “abhorrent motivation” called for a significant penalty.
“It is profoundly disturbing that a 16-year-old woman, no doubt facing significant challenges adjusting to living in a very different society than her parents,’ could be murdered by her father and brother for the purpose of saving the family pride,” Durno said as Muhammad Parvez and his son, Waqas, sat expressionless in the prisoner’s box. Aqsa’s mother and several of her siblings sat quietly in the courtroom behind them; her mother, Anwar Jan, occasionally dabbed her eyes.
