…has nothing do with Islam, but backward WACK Desi culture. Yes Desi! Muslims, Sikhs and Hindu parents from India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh are all prone to this type of anger with their daughters.
Desi culture is good and bad. The bad is obviously clear: honor killings. Muslims do it. Hindus do it. Sikhs do it. Honor killings do not save your honor idiots! They totally kill it and ruin it in front of everyone. What kind of backward ideology is that. “My daughter is dating a kafir! I must kill her to save my honor!” Stupid! Stupid! Stupid! Who came up with this dumb idea? Oh yeah, it’s also forbidden in Islam, just like alcohol and pork.
Many Desi parents form India, Pakistan and Bangladesh have a serious problem when their daughters like a non-[insert religion here] guy. What’s even worse. Many Desi parents are extremely racist. If the daughter likes a Black guy, forget about it. It will be World War 1, 2, 3 and 4! Many Desi parents (regardless of religion) are racist towards Black people and them inter-marrying their daughters and sons. Many of these Desi parents (regardless of religion) are racist towards marrying Arabs, Whites and non-Desi (Indian, Pakistani, Bengali), but not as much to Black people.
There should be some type of new Islamic topic with classes and books: the Fiqh of Parenting. In the case of Aqsa, I blame the parents. I can almost guarantee her parents watched Bollywood films. Yet, the news media claims her father wanted her to wear hijab. How many hijabis are in Bollywood films? For the father to force the hijab on his daughter must mean he was religious. He must have been actively going to the Masjid. Is this true? Did he wear a beard? I am guessing no to most of these questions, because any one who is actively living Islam would not commit such a horrible crime.
To all the major news media networks that are reporting this horrible tragedy as having to be related to Hijab. It has very little to do with Hijab. It’s some really backward pissed off Desi father who can’t control his daughter and lost his anger and killed her. Her father was probably most likely extremely angry she wasn’t being ‘Muslim’ enough. It was beyond hijab. Her father needs to learn how to be a parent.
To the father of Aqsa Parvez, I doubt you will read this, but all I can say is: fear God, for God is the Most Just! The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him said): “Whoever hath a daughter, and doth not bury her alive or scold her, or prefer his male children to her, may God bring him into Paradise.”
Side Note: To be fair, parents from Afghanistan and Middle Eastern Countries are also prone to this type of mental issue, but in the case of Aqsa Parvez it was the Desi mental issue.
