And contrary to what the petit dauphin and his friends at the red star "think" it is barbaric.
TORONTO -- Randjida Khairi paid the ultimate price for standing up to her Afghan Muslim husband and letting their children live as Westerners, a jury heard Friday.
The mother of six had her throat slashed by Peer Khairi, slit open to the spine and slowly suffocated in her own blood, Crown attorney Robert Kenny said in his opening to the jury.
"She was in the process of separating her finances and moving out of the family home," Kenny said. "There had been fights between the couple about how permissive she was in raising their children, how she allowed them to dress and socialize as they liked, rather than asserting more control over their behaviour so that they kept the culture and rules of their birthplace."
Khairi, now 65, has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder in the March 18, 2008 slaying of Randjida, 53, his wife of more than 30 years, at their West Mall penthouse apartment.
