A Muslim girl whose only offense was to disdain her father’s choice of suitable mate — and who instead picked her own boyfriend — paid the ultimate price when she was killed by members of her own family.
But the killing didn’t occur right away.
No, first she was tortured and raped. And then her body was unceremoniously dumped in a suitcase.
Ain’t assimilation grand?
Almost as grand as Islam’s peaceful roots.
The Mirror has more:
Banaz Mahmod, 20, was raped, tortured and garotted in a two hour ordeal at her parents home in London before she was buried in a suitcase in the back garden
She chose a boyfriend outside of her family’s strict regime, and paid with her life by being tortured to death by her father, uncle and cousins and unceremoniously dumped in a suitcase.
Banaz Mahmod was raped, tortured and strangled with a length of plastic cord at her parents’ home in a brutal honour killing after her family felt she had “shamed” them by divorcing her arranged marriage husband and choosing her own partner.
The Kurdish 20-year-old had even heard her family discussing the plot to kill her and her boyfriend at a ‘family war council’ and had delivered a handwritten letter to police revealing the men who were “ready to do the job.”
Months later she was dead, buried several feet beneath the ground below a leaking pipe, her body bundled into a suitcase where it was left to rot.
