Muslim Mother Who Poured Acid on Daughter Just Wishes She Could Kill All Her Kids

The good news is that Zaheen Akhtar feels bad for killing her 15-year-old daughter for looking at a boy by pouring acid on her. The bad news is that her version of feeling bad involves killing even more kids.

The parents poured acid over 15-year-old Anusha at their home last Monday after seeing her looking at boys. The girl died two days later after suffering 70 percent burns, according to doctors.

Anusha’s mother Zaheen Akhtar, 42, speaking from her police cell in Khoi Ratta, around 140 kilometres (85 miles) north of Muzaffarabad, the main city in Pakistan-administered Kashmir, said she feared for the future of the rest of her children.

“I deeply regret my action. I am repenting as I should not have done this. She was very innocent. I feel like killing all my kids,” the mother of eight told AFP.

I don’t think she really understands the concept of “regret”. When you regret something, then you have absolutely no desire to repeat it. If your idea of regretting that you killed your daughter expresses itself with a desire to kill all your kids, that is the opposite of regret, that might just be Islam, which appears to be the opposite of conscience.

If you turn conscience inside out, you get Islam.

“My remaining children, including four girls and two boys, all under 10 years of age have been left alone and they have nobody out there except Allah the Almighty to look after them,” she said.

I’m going to go ahead and say that a desert hallucination will probably make a better parent than the couple that poured acid on their daughter for looking at a boy. Wolverines would probably make better parents for those four girls. As long as they weren’t Muslim wolverines.

If you had a choice between placing those children with their Muslim family or the Manson family, the Manson family would start looking pretty good. At least they only killed outsiders.

Akhtar said she and husband Mohammad Zafar feared Anusha would follow in the footsteps of her elder sister who they married off at 16 “because people had been talking about her bad character” and who had cut off contact after moving to Karachi with her husband.

Well no need to worry about that now.

    Here is a picture of the mother. http://darkroom.baltimoresun.com/2012/11/nov-6-ph

    I don't know why there is a picture from the fauxtography scandal of 2006 accompanying this article.

      Because it's funnier

        That's good enough for me.

      • southwood

        I'm not getting many laughs out of it, Daniel.

        • Daniel Greenfield

          Your mileage may vary

          • southwood

            Please explain, Daniel. Different taste in humour (humor) you mean ? Probably, but the story didn't leave too much leeway in my mood where a laugh could get a foothold. But let me tell you: I saw the photo of the actual mother who killed the daughter. I can honestly say what hit me was the look of unbelievable ignorance in her face.

  • Mary Sue

    Compelling questions: Where in the blazes did this mother get enough acid to pour on her daughter to kill her? Is it available on the corner Rite-Aid or something? Man, the middle east needs Sulfuric Acid control (or whichever acid this was)!

    And she sounds psycho like every other "honor killing" parent.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      It seems to be common in the Muslim world. There must be an Acids R' Us on every corner.

      • Mary Sue

        Now I'm getting a mental picture of bottles of, instead of Holy Water, Holy Acid, being sold on every street corner.

        "Is your daughter or wife or sister rebellious and a whore? Is she showing the slightest sliver of ankle skin in public? Purge the evil from among you with Acid of Allah. Guaranteed results or your rupee back!"

  • Parenthetical Phrase

    Pakistan is not in the Middle East. It is part of Asia. I have been told that Pakistanis (particularly in the rural areas) typically carry acid with them when walking with their children to keep them "in line."

    • Mary Sue

      Yes, I know, it's in South Asia. Acid seems to be common there, too.

      Now I'm getting a mental picture of bottles of, instead of Holy Water, Holy Acid, being sold on every street corner.

    Muslim fanatics in Pakistan and elsewhere hate Jews very much–so much that they have to kill. If there are no Jews available, they kill the nearest available target.

      I surmise that their interaction has been solely with Jews like you. Hence, it is no small surprise that they hate Jews.
      As an American, I often consider that foreigners look to me as an example of how all Americans think and behave. So if I wish not to promote a negative image, I mark my words, at least in front of strangers, so that they do not develop an (unfairly) negative image of all Americans based upon watching me.

      • g_jochnowitz

        What's that you're saying about "if I wish not to promote a negative image"?

  • Aziza Cloud

    Mary Sue, you are quite ignorant. Read the article related to the author's rambling tripe. It is from the (Pakistani) Tribune. All of the commenters are Indian or Pakistani. And, all, except for one, express animosity towards this woman and her husband for what they did. One person wrote, "disgrace to humanity and disgrace to parenthood…." Another, who got the most thumbs-ups, wrote, "The parents brought acid and kept it ready to pour on their daughter. They did not regret when their daughter suffered two days of enormous pain, burning, helplessness. Now in jail, they leisurely issue statements of regret. First they did not know about honour when producing eight children without any financial background. They are just like beasts who swallow their own cubs when hungry. If this is religious culture, a local Mullah also should be hanged along with them. For every acid case, a local mullah should be made a sacrificial goat and be hanged (of course the mullahs body will not be eaten by insects as it is more poisonous than acid." Yet another writes (in pidgin English), "girl killed for seeing boy………..some days back …..girl killed for talking to boys…..some months back policeman kills sister for wearing jeans…hmmmmmmmmmm……what is so much honourable in this???"

    • Mary Sue

      I'm not saying they all do it, I'm just very disturbed that such a quantity of a very strong acid is readily available for people to use like that. Mostly I've heard of Afghan Taliban men throwing acid on girls who don't cover their faces or who go to school.

      This is Talibani style crap and I know it and so do the commentators.

    this 'woman' and I use the word generously, is the face of islam – a 7th century death cult. apologists like aziza can go on and on about the 'religion of peace' – the evidence shows otherwise

  • BS77

    One longs for the day when this hideous ideology is completely forgotten

  • Douglas

    All I can say is the devil, "allah", doesn't just push muslims into doing these horrible things. He tempts anybody and everybody. Not just muslims. Muslims are at the core of this evil but you do hear cases of non-muslims doing horrible things to there children too. God help us. The world is becoming a smallef place and we now have to deal with islam at an alarming new rate.

    It’s Flat Fatima! I haven’t seen her in ages. Is she still working in the ‘staged atrocity’ gig?

  • http://www.facebook.com/lea.reed.507 Lea Reed

    I'm sure not ALL Muslim parents do this, but we hear about enough incidents to cause alarm. It all stems back to the fact that they think women are expendable and here to serve only. It's a deeply ingrained thought process that is a direct result of heinous sin. Sorry, but an outcome like killing your wife or daughter for some perceived "wickedness" can be produced from nothing but horrendous sin and a thoroughly reprehensible moral guideline. It's disgusting and turns my stomach. I certainly hope that sharia law is NEVER instituted in America. It's bad enough that we now have a closet (barely) socialist as a president…we simply cannot tolerate such a nasty set of laws to exist anywhere in our country.

    I CAN’T BELEIVE THIS I AM REALLY SHOCKED ABOUT THIS STORY. ALL SHE DID WAS LOOK AT TWO BOYS THIS IS NOT WRONG AT ALL I’S NOT AS IF SHE HAD AN AFFAIR AND SEX WITH THE GUY. THIS IS TOTALLY WRONG. HER PARENTS SHOULD STAY IN JAIL FOR SUCH A LONG TIME THAT THEY REMEMBER THE DAY THEY GAVE DEATH TO THERE OWN FLESH AND BLOOD THERE DAUGHTER. THEY HAVE EIGHT KIDS AS WELL WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THEM? WHO WILL LOOK AFTER THOSE POOR AND INNOCENT KIDS? THEY WON’T BE SEEING THERE PARENTS IN A LONG TIME. I FEEL SO SORRY FOR THOSE REMAINING KIDS THAT ARE LEFT. I HOPE ALLAH LOOKS AFTER THOSE REMAINING KIDS AMEEN XXX

    MUSLIM IS TERRORISM MUST BE REMOVE MUSLIMS FROM THE WORLD

  • Concerned

    To all the people that commented here against Muslims and Islam for the action of a Muslim mother killing her daughter. what would you say for all the Christian mothers killing her kids.

    Mother 1 : http://edition.cnn.com/2012/10/18/justice/louisia

    Mother 5 :http://www.jamaicaobserver.com/news/Mom-kills-baby_13356858

    And in-particular this mother who killed her 6 week old baby by stuffing pages of the bible in her.
    http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2012/10/04/horrif

    and the list goes on and on and on.

    Does this prove that all Christians parents are barbaric and should not be allowed to have children.

    And to all the Jews, more Christians have killed Jews than Muslims, so should we eradicate all Christians.

    Why can't we just see these people as mentally ill? Why do we have to add religion to everything. Stop spreading hatred, there is enough of that in the world.

  • Mohammed

    Hey, at least one camel monkey had the right idea. But yes, she should have killed all her kids. And then she should have gotten work at a Muslim preschool and continued her work until they are gone. See, I have a solution. It is a crime punishable by DEATH to be a Muslim under the age of 18. We kill all their kids and there will be nobody left to carry on their reign of terror in the future. After the only Muslims left in the world are 18 and older, we deal with them too.

  • Zara

    All I’m going to say here is that you are being extremely unintelligent. You really think the 1 billion+ of Muslims are crazy murderers that enjoy killing their family. Before you write ridiculous articles you should get your facts right. The majority of murders in families are done in Christian households. And many of the murderers have mental illnesses, not because they’re “Muslim so that must be the reason”. I’m pretty shocked at how stupid you are for writing this. Please rethink your life.
