“I Am Killing Her If the Murder is Halal”

I know. Nothing to do with Islam. Not a thing. All of Mohammed’s statements running down women surely had nothing to do with it. Creating a religion which states that women invalidate a man’s prayers just like dogs and donkeys… or announcing that the majority in hell are women doesn’t have a thing to do with it.
And still we have to ask, what led this little monster to conclude that killing his wife for having another girl was “Halal”?
A Turkish man is charged with electrocuting his wife as punishment for giving birth to a girl while on the phone to police who failed to avert the crime, media reported Friday, according to AFP.
The 29-year-old from southeastern Diyarbakir province does not deny murdering his wife by placing a live electric cable under her chin as she slept, a day after their second baby girl was born in January, the report said.
The Turkish Vatan newspaper published on its front page a transcript of a telephone call the man placed to police in which he announced his murderous intent, in real time.
“I killed someone,” the man told the police operator, according to the transcript.
“Who did you kill?” asked the officer on the other end.
“I am killing my wife right now,” said the man.
“Did you kill her or are you killing her?” the officer asked.
“Well, she isn’t dead yet. But I am killing her if the murder is halal (permissible in Islam),” the man replied.
A defense lawyer told the court at a hearing Wednesday that his client killed his wife because she gave birth to “a girl once again”.
The murder rate of women in Turkey has increased frighteningly as its formerly secular government was taken over by Erdogan’s Islamist AKP party which has locked up the political opposition.
