A Culturally Different Parenting Technique

Globe and Mail:

A 16-year-old woman was clinging to life in hospital last night after police in Mississauga received a call from a man claiming he had killed his daughter.

More:

Students at nearby Applewood Heights Secondary School in Mississauga identified the teen as Aqsa or Axa Parvez. Some claimed she had clashed with her family after ceasing to wear a hijab and adopting a more Western style of dress.

About the residence:

One neighbour who asked not to be named said she thought there were "at least two" families living in the house.

I'm sure they all provided moral support to the murderous father.

One of the classmates of this poor girl comments on the barbarity:

"Sixteen-year-old girls worry about makeup and boys, not about surviving," another classmate said. "It's not right. She's 16, damn it."

She has now died. Father charged. It was over the hijab.

The remaining family should be deported. This heinous murder did not take place without their complicity.

And there should be a total ban on wearing Islamic religious headgear in publicly-funded schools.

The burqa ought to be banned outright. It is a violation of the human rights of women, and it is a safety hazard.
