Rep. Ilhan Omar: Obama was able to ‘get away with murder’ because he had ‘the pretty face and the smile’

Democrats, the new leader of your party has little patience with the old leaders of your party. They have got to go. Henceforth only fully Sharia-compliant leaders who would never engage in the “droning of countries around the world” in order to stymie jihad terror activity will be allowed. That Omar objects even to Obama’s weak and half-hearted opposition to jihad terror is telling. From now on, apparently, the Democrats will be indefatigably committed to absolute surrender.

“The Democrats’ Dilemma,” by Tim Alberta, Politico, March 8, 2019:

MINNEAPOLIS—They have gathered in defiance of the freezing temperatures on a late February’s night, scores of them twirling Somali flags in one hand and American flags in the other, crowding around the arrivals terminal and waiting to welcome one of their own. The vast Somali community in the Twin Cities is like one sprawling extended family, explains Ali Aden, a 39-year-old engineer who came to the U.S. two decades ago, as we survey the scene. When a prominent member of the family arrives, it’s customary to greet them this way.

“Is it Congresswoman Omar they’re waiting for?” I ask, referencing the freshman Democrat whose district we’re standing in.

“Ilhan?” he smiles broadly. “No, no. If it were Ilhan, the whole city would be here.”…

As she saw it, the party ostensibly committed to progressive values had become complicit in perpetuating the status quo. Omar says the “hope and change” offered by Barack Obama was a mirage. Recalling the “caging of kids” at the U.S.-Mexico border and the “droning of countries around the world” on Obama’s watch, she argues that the Democratic president operated within the same fundamentally broken framework as his Republican successor.

“We can’t be only upset with Trump. … His policies are bad, but many of the people who came before him also had really bad policies. They just were more polished than he was,” Omar says. “And that’s not what we should be looking for anymore. We don’t want anybody to get away with murder because they are polished. We want to recognize the actual policies that are behind the pretty face and the smile.”…

Muslim migrant charged with child rapes and murder

He had fled back to Iraq, and apparently his younger brother, who also took part in one of the violent sexual assaults, did also. Now wait a minute. Weren’t they supposed to be “refugees”? Weren’t they supposed to be in danger in Iraq? Yet they found refuge there after committing crimes in Germany. That should tell the Merkel government something, but it won’t.

“Denied asylum, Iraqi charged with rape and murder in Germany’s ‘Susanna case,’” AFP-JIJI, January 24, 2019:

Ali Bashar

BERLIN – German prosecutors Wednesday announced child rape and murder charges against a rejected Iraqi asylum-seeker in a case that fueled a heated debate about immigrant crime.

The accused in the “Susanna case,” 21-year-old Ali Bashar, had fled Germany after the crime for northern Iraq but was extradited in a mission joined personally by federal police chief Dieter Romann.

Bashar is accused of beating, raping and then strangling schoolgirl Susanna Maria Feldman, 14, in a wooded area near his refugee shelter in the city of Wiesbaden last May 23.

Earlier he had also allegedly twice raped an 11-year-old girl — once in April 2018 after locking her in his room, and again near a supermarket parking area the following month.

Prosecutors also laid charges against an Afghan youth who was living in the same refugee shelter, Mansoor Q., who was believed to be aged at least 14 at the time, for also raping the 11-year-old girl.

Prosecutors said Ali Bashar’s younger brother — who is believed to be in Iraq, according to media reports — had also taken part in a violent sexual assault against the younger girl.

Following a public outcry over Susanna’s death, German federal police hauled Bashar back from Arbil, northern Iraq, where he had been arrested by local Kurdish security forces….

Bashar had first arrived in Germany in 2015 along with his parents and five siblings.

He faced deportation after his request for asylum was rejected in December 2016, but he obtained a temporary residence permit pending his appeal.

During this time, he got into trouble with police on several occasions, including for fights, alleged robbery and possession of an illegal switchblade.

In his upcoming trial he also faces charges for a park robbery in which he beat, strangled and threatened with a knife a man to steal his watch, bag, phone and bank card….

Muslim Migrant says he Stabbed University Lecturer to Death Because he ‘insulted Muhammad’

Since the whole Western intelligentsia agrees that one must not insult Muhammad, but that it is a matter of “respect” to submit to Sharia blasphemy laws, will Ali R. now be freed with an apology?

Ali R.

“Irish lecturer stabbed to death in Paris had ‘insulted the Prophet Mohammed’, says his Pakistani killer,” by Peter Allen, MailOnline, December 7, 2018 (thanks to Anne):

An Irish university lecturer stabbed to death by one of his former students had allegedly ‘insulted the Prophet Mohammed’, his killer has told French police.

The 66-year-old academic, named locally as John Dowling, was attacked and stabbed 13 times outside the Paris university where he worked on Wednesday.

Ali R., a 37-year-old Pakistani national, has confessed to the killing and told police he held a personal grudge against the teacher after failing his exams last year.

Ali – whose surname has not been disclosed by the French authorities – is due to be indicted for murder in Paris today for the attack outside the Leonardo de Vinci private university in La Defense business district.

Catherine Denis, the Nanterre prosecutor involved in the case, said Ali harboured an ‘obsessive resentment’ against the university for kicking him out in September 2017.

‘He came to France two years ago to join the management school, but did not pass his first year,’ she said.

‘Since then he had been returning to the college, and had become unwanted to the point that he was not allowed in any more.’

CCTV footage shows Mr Dowling chatting calmly with Ali at around midday, before the attacker took out a steak knife and plunged it into the Irishman’s throat, and then into his chest.

Ali has told police that the teacher had made fun of his Muslim religion during English classes at the university.

‘He produced a drawing, which he showed off in class, insulting the Prophet Mohammed,’ Ali said, according to Ms Denis.

Despite this claim, Ms Denis said ‘nobody remembers such an incident. ‘We don’t have proof of radicalization, but rather a feeling that we’re dealing with someone who is very religious, very pious, very practicing.’…Fran

Ms Denis said Ali R. was not known to the intelligence services, but was an ‘obsessive patriot’ from the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.

This Twitter picture appears to show the aftermath of the fatal stabbing outside the Leonardo De Vinci private university on Wednesday afternoon

He had just renewed his residency permit to stay in France, and had bought the steak knife from a supermarket close to the university….

Despite this, detectives have so far ruled out any links between the attacker and jihadi groups….

So what? He obviously shares their beliefs.

Islamic State encourages Muslims in ‘butchering and bayonet,’ telling them to ‘trust in Allah’

The Islamic State continues to couch all its exhortations to violence in Islamic terms. Western law enforcement and intelligence officials continue to ignore this or downplay its significance.

“ISIS Supporters Encourage ‘Easier Ways’ for Fellow Jihadists, Like ‘Butchering and Bayonet,’” by Bridget Johnson, PJ Media, November 16, 2018 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

Lone jihadists are encouraged to pick “deadly and easier ways” of attacks in new tips circulated online among ISIS supporters, with an image depicting a woman walking on the Palais de Chaillot framed in crosshairs.

The crudely photoshopped image, with the Eiffel Tower in the background, also depicts three victims on the ground at the popular tourist spot as a terrorist sporting a black T-shirt and face mask wields a bloody knife.

“Lone wolves” are advised to “prepare a plan and study it correctly,” and “if the plan is prepared, trust in Allah.”

The first suggested method of attack is running over people with a heavy truck, like Nice in 2016, “if available.” Then comes “butchering and bayonet” and attacking “their gatherings.” That’s followed by “snatched [sic] them from their house one by one.”

France frequently figures into propaganda from ISIS and their online support network, as the November 2015 Paris attackers are lionized as key examples of a waging an assault on one’s home turf.

A recent call to arms from ISIS-backing media group Al-Abd Al-Faqir, issued after last week’s Melbourne attack, depicted the Eiffel Tower in flames with the “Just Terror” slogan that ISIS has long used in its publications to inspire lone jihad. A black-clad jihadist wearing a leather, zip-front vest stood before the scene, with the message, “Terrorize them in their lands. O Crusaders, we have prepared for you what never crossed your mind. For our goal is to horrify you and terrorize you and harm you.”

Muharir al-Ansar, another ISIS-supporting media group that creates and disseminates propaganda as well as incitement and recruitment materials on behalf of the group, in their own post-Melbourne imagery vowed “soon” painted on the side of a white cargo truck like that used in the Nice attack, with a masked jihadist popping out of the top.

“Soon, the vehicle attacks will be witnessed on your streets, by Allah’s permission,” read the text.
Sponsored

The same group circulated another poster declaring “Soon: the White House under fire: Just Terror.” The image showed a jihadist pointing a rifle outfitted with a scope through a defensive position in a broken wall, though it depicts the U.S. Capitol as the target instead of the White House….

VIDEO: Thousands of Germans protest on behalf of the victims of ‘killer migrants’

Thousands of protesters staged a ‘mourning march’ in Chemnitz for people believed to have been killed by migrants, following the fatal stabbing of Daniel Hillig.

Kudos to the thousands who attended this march, and to “the anti-mass migration Alternative for Germany (AfD) party and the PEGIDA movement” for remembering and caring about the true victims of intolerance and discrimination, as well as their families and communities. No matter how loud and frequent Islamic supremacists and their far-left water carriers try to foist the “Islamophobia” canard upon Western nations, the truth is that the victims of jihad pile up daily.

The persecution of minorities and the abuse of women are rampant in majority-Muslim countries, and with indiscriminate, open-door immigration, these abuses and more have now entered Western countries; the numbers of victims will inevitably climb.

“PICTURES: Protesters Stage ‘Mourning March’ in Chemnitz for Victims of Killer Migrants,” by Jack Montgomery, Breitbart, September 2, 2018:

Thousands of protesters staged a ‘mourning march’ in Chemnitz for people believed to have been killed by migrants, following the fatal stabbing of Daniel Hillig.

23-year-old Alaa S., from Syria, and 22-year-old Yousif A., from Iraq, were arrested following Mr Hillig’s death.

Revelations that the Iraqi suspect had a string of convictions for crimes including fraud, drug dealings, and serious bodily injury — which earned him a two-year suspended sentence —  and was supposed to be deported sparked public outcry.

The anti-mass migration Alternative for Germany (AfD) party and the PEGIDA movement, best known for its regular street protests against ‘Islamisation’ and mass migration, staged the “mourning march” in response.

Participants carried placards bearing the names and likenesses of people believed to have been killed by migrants, including medical student Maria Ladenburger — the daughter of an EU official who was raped and drowned by Hussein Khavari.

Khavari had allegedly raped a 12-year-old girl in his native country before coming to Europe claiming to be a ‘child refugee’.

He was subsequently given a ten-year sentence for throwing a woman off a cliff in Greece, but spent only a very short time behind bars before being paroled — and promptly moved on to Germany, where he killed Miss Ladenburger…..

Uzbek refugee sentenced to additional 20 years for attempted murder of prison warden

Fazliddin Kurbanov was already serving a sentence of 25 years on terrorism charges when he tried to kill the warden at California’s Victorville prison. The warden was seriously wounded and scarred for life from the improvised knife attack.

Kurbanov is just one of many vetted refugees who have been found to have terrorist or criminal connections and the Trump Administration has been busy finding more as we have been reporting.

Thanks to Richard for spotting the story at Creeping Sharia.

Circles in red Fazliddin Kurbanov.

We have covered this case from Kurbanov’s arrest in 2013. We were especially interested in how so many radicalized Uzbek’s were being ‘welcomed’ to America as refugees.

From KTLA-5 where I don’t believe they could bother to mention the word “refugee” in their story. Do you see it? Or, is he just a “man?”

Man Serving 25-Year Terrorism Sentence Gets Another 20 Years For Trying to Kill Victorville Prison Warden

A man serving a 25-year sentence for conspiring to commit acts of terrorism against the United States was sentenced to another 20 years Monday after trying to kill a Victorville prison warden with a homemade shank, the U.S. Department of Justice said.During a hearing on Monday, Fazliddin Kurbanov admitted to using a shank he made himself to try slitting the throat of the warden at the Federal Correctional Institute-II two years earlier, federal prosecutors said.The admission was made as part of a plea deal. Kurbanov, 36, pleaded guilty to attempted murder of a federal officer on March 13, according to the DOJ.Speaking through an interpreter at the hearing, Kurbanov, a Uzbek national, said he was not sorry for committing the brutal assault, federal prosecutors said. He said the warden, who suffered serious injuries and has since been transferred to a different prison, was supposed to die.

We can only assume he was supposed to die because he is an infidel to Kurbanov.

He also “expressed extreme animosity toward the United States,” federal prosecutors said in a news release.

Ahhhh! No deportation once he has served his sentence!

On Monday, Judge Virginia A. Phillips gave Kurbanov the maximum possible sentence as she said he remains an extreme danger, according to a DOJ news release. Once he completes both his 25-year sentence for terrorism charges and the extra 20 years attacking the warden, he will be on lifetime supervised release.

More here.

See RRW’s extensive Crimes category where you will see some recent cases—Iraqi refugee Colorado cop shooter, the Iraqi ISIS killer, a refugee found living in California, and the Somali terrorist (al-Shabaab) refugee couple in Arizona—where the alleged criminals lied on refugee applications to America.  So much for extreme vetting!

One final thing!

When the refugee industry puts out those glowing economic studies about how refugees benefit America, I wonder do they include, on the cost side, what it costs taxpayers for these criminals that go through our court system and are sentenced to decades in prison.?

Someone needs to figure out what it costs to keep one of these terrorists/criminals in jail for decades to life.

Muslim migrant who murdered 14-year-old girl also raped 11-year-old girl at refugee home

Why does this keep happening?

Sexual assault occurs in all cultures, but only in Islam does it have divine sanction.

One survivor of a Muslim rape gang in the UK said that her rapists would quote Quran to her, and believed their actions justified by Islam.

The Qur’an teaches that Infidel women can be lawfully taken for sexual use (cf. its allowance for a man to take “captives of the right hand,” 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” (33:59) The implication there is that if women do not cover themselves adequately with their outer garments, they may be abused, and that such abuse would be justified.

In this case, Ali Bashar’s other victim was 11 years old. This may have been because Bashar’s reverence for Muhammad led him to think of children as sexual objects. Islamic apologists in the West routinely deny that Muhammad consummated his marriage with (i.e., raped) Aisha when she was nine, and go through all sorts of contortions to deny the evidence of the texts, but the fact that child marriage is accepted in wide swaths of the Islamic world, even by the directorate of religious affairs in once-“moderate” albeit now rapidly re-Islamizing Turkey, most clearly shows their dishonesty. The Diyanet wouldn’t approve of child marriage if it weren’t Islamic, as it explains in its own defense. And child marriage has abundant attestation in Islamic tradition and law.

“Islam has no age barrier in marriage and Muslims have no apology for those who refuse to accept this” — Ishaq Akintola, professor of Islamic Eschatology and Director of Muslim Rights Concern, Nigeria

“There is no minimum marriage age for either men or women in Islamic law. The law in many countries permits girls to marry only from the age of 18. This is arbitrary legislation, not Islamic law.” — Dr. Abd Al-Hamid Al-‘Ubeidi, Iraqi expert on Islamic law

There is no minimum age for marriage and that girls can be married “even if they are in the cradle.” — Dr. Salih bin Fawzan, prominent cleric and member of Saudi Arabia’s highest religious council

“Islam does not forbid marriage of young children.” — Pakistan’s Council of Islamic Ideology

Hadiths that Muslims consider authentic record that Muhammad’s favorite wife, Aisha, was six when Muhammad wedded her and nine when he consummated the marriage:

“The Prophet wrote the (marriage contract) with Aisha while she was six years old and consummated his marriage with her while she was nine years old and she remained with him for nine years (i.e. till his death)” (Bukhari 7.62.88).

Another tradition has Aisha herself recount the scene:

The Prophet engaged me when I was a girl of six (years). We went to Medina and stayed at the home of Bani-al-Harith bin Khazraj. Then I got ill and my hair fell down. Later on my hair grew (again) and my mother, Um Ruman, came to me while I was playing in a swing with some of my girl friends. She called me, and I went to her, not knowing what she wanted to do to me. She caught me by the hand and made me stand at the door of the house. I was breathless then, and when my breathing became all right, she took some water and rubbed my face and head with it. Then she took me into the house. There in the house I saw some Ansari women who said, “Best wishes and Allah’s Blessing and a good luck.” Then she entrusted me to them and they prepared me (for the marriage). Unexpectedly Allah’s Apostle came to me in the forenoon and my mother handed me over to him, and at that time I was a girl of nine years of age. (Bukhari 5.58.234).

Muhammad was at this time fifty-four years old.

Marrying young girls was not all that unusual for its time, but because in Islam Muhammad is the supreme example of conduct (cf. Qur’an 33:21), he is considered exemplary in this unto today. And so in April 2011, the Bangladesh Mufti Fazlul Haque Amini declared that those trying to pass a law banning child marriage in that country were putting Muhammad in a bad light: “Banning child marriage will cause challenging the marriage of the holy prophet of Islam, [putting] the moral character of the prophet into controversy and challenge.” He added a threat: “Islam permits child marriage and it will not be tolerated if any ruler will ever try to touch this issue in the name of giving more rights to women.” The Mufti said that 200,000 jihadists were ready to sacrifice their lives for any law restricting child marriage.

“Failed Iraqi asylum seeker, 21, who was dragged back to Germany after admitting he murdered a 14-year-old girl, ‘also raped 11-year-old at refugee home,’” by Tariq Tahir, Mailonline, July 3, 2018:

A failed Iraqi asylum seeker who was dragged back to Germany after admitting to the murder of a 14-year-old girl also twice raped an 11-year-old child, investigators say.

Ali Bashar, 21, allegedly raped the German girl in March at the refugee home where he lived in Wiesbaden, western Germany, local prosecutors said.

Bashar and an Afghan boy who also lived in the refugee home are suspected of raping the 11-year-old child again in May.

The second suspect is the same teenager who identified Bashar as the person that raped and murdered 14-year-old schoolgirl Susanna Maria Feldman in nearby Mainz, and led officers to the body.

Police arrested the Afghan boy while they investigate whether he was involved in the crimes against Susanna and against the 11-year-old girl.

They now believe the Afghan is 14 years old and past the age of criminal responsibility, rather than 13 as he has previously claimed.

Bashar himself remains in a Frankfurt jail after confessing to killing Susanna, although he claims he did not rape her….

Following a public outcry over the death, German federal police hauled Bashar back from Arbil, northern Iraq, where he had fled with his family but was arrested by local Kurdish security forces.

Media reports alleged that one of his brothers, who remain in Iraq, also raped the 11-year-old girl….

Bashar had first arrived in Germany in 2015 along with his parents and five siblings.

He should have been deported after his request for asylum was rejected in December 2016, but he obtained a temporary residence permit pending his appeal.

During this time, he got into trouble with the police on several occasions, including for fights, alleged robbery and possession of an illegal switchblade….

1,000 more children as young as 11 abused by Muslim rape gangs, police again did nothing!

Dino Nocivelli, a specialist child abuse solicitor, said: “These children were treated as sexual commodities by men who inflicted despicable acts of abuse. The survivors deserve an inquiry. They need to know how abuse took place for so long and why so many perpetrators have never been brought to justice.”

The answer is simple. The British Left created an atmosphere in which it was considered “racist” and “Islamophobic” to call attention to these crimes, since their perpetrators were Muslims. The British Left has such power over the public sphere in Britain that it successfully cowed and intimidated the law enforcement establishment into keeping quiet and doing nothing about these crimes, knowing it would be career suicide to do something so “Islamophobic” as to prosecute them.

So these cowardly police officials allowed thousands of young girls’ lives to be ruined instead of challenging this evil. When the epitaph of free Britain is written, the likes of Nick Lowles and Fiyaz Mughal will emerge as the ones who destroyed Britain as a free society, with eager help from self-serving politicians such as David Cameron and Theresa May.

“‘Girls must be saved from going through this hell’: Call for public inquiry into Telford sex scandal as it emerges up to 1,000 children as young as 11 were drugged, beaten and raped over 40 years,” by Alex Green, Mailonline, March 11, 2018:

A brutal sex gang raped as many as 1,000 young girls over 40 years in what may be Britain’s ‘worst ever’ child abuse scandal.

Girls in the town of Telford, Shropshire, were drugged, beaten and raped at the hands of a grooming gang active since the 1980s.

Allegations are said to have been mishandled by authorities, with many perpetrators going unpunished, while it is claimed similar abuse continues in the area.

Home Office figures show there were 15.1 child sex crimes reported per 10,000 residents in the year to September 2015.

Telford’s population is 155,000 – meaning a potential 225 victims.

Telford’s Conservative MP, Lucy Allan, has previously called for a Rotherham-style inquiry into the allegations and called the latest reports ‘extremely serious and shocking’.

‘There must now be an independent inquiry into child sexual exploitation in Telford so that our community can have absolute confidence in the authorities,’ she told the paper.

A mother and four teenage girls have been linked to the allegations of abuse.

Lucy Lowe, 16, died alongside her mother and sister after the man who had been abusing her, 26-year-old Azhar Ali Mehmood, set fire to their house.

The taxi-driver first targeted Lucy in 1997. She gave birth to his child when she was just 14.

Mehmood was jailed for murdering Lucy, her mother Eileen and her sister Sarah, 17.

However, he was never arrested or charged with any sex abuse crimes over his involvement with the young girl.

Another victim, who was drugged and gang raped by nine men two years later, said that Lucy’s death was used as a warning to other girls who might speak out.

The schoolgirl, who remains anonymous, said she was driven to try to kill herself.

‘I was scared my family would die like Lucy’s. I thought they’d only be safe if I killed myself,’ she told The Sunday Mirror.

In 2002 another schoolgirl was killed in an unexplained car accident in Telford.

Becky Watson, 13, was killed after a car she was in crashed. At the time the incident was reported as a ‘prank’.

However, it was revealed she had suffered two years of sex abuse at the hands of a grooming gang, which began when she was 11.

In tragic diary entries she told of how she was forced to ‘sleep around’.

Her mother, Torron Watson, went to the police on a number of occasion and even handed them a list of suspects.

But nothing was done.

She said: ‘Girls like Becky were treated like criminals. I was crying out for help but it felt like I had nowhere to turn. If Becky’s abuse had been properly investigated by the authorities more girls could have been saved from going through this hell.’

Vicky Round, a friend of Becky’s, was abused by the same gang.

They forced her into a crack concaine addiction aged 12.

By 14 she was taking heroine regularly.

She died aged 20 after a suspected drug overdose.

In Rotherham around 1,400 girls, many of them under-age, were sexually abused over a 16 year period at the hands of men from the town’s Pakistani community.

An estimate of the number of victims in Telford was calculated with the help of Professor Liz Kelly, from the Child and Woman Abuse Studies Unit at London Metropolitan University, who reviewed the Mirror’s figures.

Dino Nocivelli, a specialist child abuse solicitor, said: ‘These children were treated as sexual commodities by men who inflicted despicable acts of abuse. The survivors deserve an inquiry.

‘They need to know how abuse took place for so long and why so many perpetrators have never been brought to justice.’…

Muslim tribal council orders honor killing of 13-year-old girl

Muslims commit 91 percent of honor killings worldwide. A manual of Islamic law certified as a reliable guide to Sunni orthodoxy by Al-Azhar, the most respected authority in Sunni Islam, says that “retaliation is obligatory against anyone who kills a human being purely intentionally and without right.” However, “not subject to retaliation” is “a father or mother (or their fathers or mothers) for killing their offspring, or offspring’s offspring.” (‘Umdat al-Salik o1.1-2). In other words, someone who kills his child incurs no legal penalty under Islamic law. In this case the victim was the murderer’s sister, a victim to the culture of violence and intimidation that such laws help create.

The Palestinian Authority gives pardons or suspended sentences for honor murders. Iraqi women have asked for tougher sentences for Islamic honor murderers, who get off lightly now. Syria in 2009 scrapped a law limiting the length of sentences for honor killings, but “the new law says a man can still benefit from extenuating circumstances in crimes of passion or honour ‘provided he serves a prison term of no less than two years in the case of killing.’” And in 2003 the Jordanian Parliament voted down on Islamic grounds a provision designed to stiffen penalties for honor killings. Al-Jazeera reported that “Islamists and conservatives said the laws violated religious traditions and would destroy families and values.”

Until the encouragement Islamic law gives to honor killing is acknowledged and confronted, more women will suffer.

“Relatives kill teenage girl for ‘honour’ on tribal jirga’s orders in Khyber Agency,” by Abdullah Malik, Dawn, June 30, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

A teenage girl was reportedly murdered by her relatives allegedly on the orders of a tribal jirga in Khyber Agency on Friday, in what the local political administration said was a case of ‘honour’ killing.

The jirga had issued the orders to kill 13-year-old Naghma after it emerged that she had allegedly attempted to run away with two young men, an official said.

After she allegedly ran away with them, the boys abandoned Naghma during the journey “out of fear”. She was later taken into custody by the security forces and released on bail upon assurance by the girl’s relatives that they would not kill her, Assistant Political Agent Niaz Mohammad told local reporters.

However, despite their assurances, Naghma’s relatives shot her dead three days later inside a house in Landi Kotal tehsil and silently buried her body in a local graveyard….

Meanwhile, a journalist belonging to Khyber Agency claimed that the two boys who allegedly ran away with the girl are in the custody of the same jirga. He claimed that the boys’ relatives will make every effort to secure their freedom, but it is possible that they too will be killed on the jirga’s orders….

Hundreds of women are murdered every year in Pakistan, often by their own relatives, for going against their families’ wishes in matters of love and marriage.

The perpetrators of so-called honour killings often walk free because they can seek forgiveness for the crime from another family member.

The Aurat Foundation’s annual report of 2016 showed 7,852 cases of violence against women.

According to Saima Munir, who works for the Aurat Foundation, there has been a 70 per cent increase in honour killings in the past year.
