Justice will be served in the Great White North, for a girl whose own family killed her in cold blood for not wearing a hijab. Of course I will likely be called a racist for implying that this was an honor killing, despite friends confirming Aqsa’s family coming down on her for not dressing muslim enough.

MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — The brother of a Mississauga, Ont., teenager who was strangled to death in her home has been charged with first-degree murder.

Aqsa Parvez was 16 when she was strangled to death in December 2007 during what friends said was a family dispute over her reluctance to wear a hijab.

Her father, 57-year-old Muhammed Parvez, was charged with first-degree murder soon after his arrest that month.

Her brother Waqas Parvez, 27, was charged with first-degree murder as well following his arrest on Thursday.

Mr. Parvez had already been charged with obstruction of justice in connection with his sister’s death.

A Peel police spokeswoman says investigators think they have the two primary suspects but believe there may be others who witnessed or have knowledge of the crime.

Of course many muslimahs in the middle east will always claim they are not compelled (read: FORCED) to wear it, they do so to prevent themselves from being sexually objectified, which implies muslim men have zero self control around the women folk. Either way it paints a pretty shoddy image.

    But Aqsa’s murder was a dishonor killing. Even the Canadian authorities and media are finally recognizing that and calling this crime what it is.
