Brooklyn: Muslim killed wife for cooking lentils for dinner instead of goat

via Man killed wife for making vegetarian dinner: prosecutors | New York Post.

A Pakistani immigrant beat his wife to death in their Brooklyn home after she made the mistake of cooking him lentils for dinner instead of the hearty meal of goat meat that he craved, according to court papers.

Noor Hussain, 75, was so outraged over the vegetarian fare that he pummeled his wife, Nazar Hussain, 66, with a stick until she was a “bloody mess,” according to prosecutors and court papers.

“Defendant asked [his wife] to cook goat and [his wife] said she made something else,” the court papers indicated as Hussain’s murder trial opened on Wednesday.

“The conversation got louder and [his wife] disrespected defendant by cursing at defendant and saying motherf- -ker, and . . . defendant took a wooden stick and hit her with it on her arm and mouth.”

Defense attorney Julie Clark admitted Hussain beat his wife — but argued that he is guilty of only manslaughter because he didn’t intend to kill her. In Pakistan, Clark said, beating one’s wife is customary.

“He comes from a culture where he thinks this is appropriate conduct, where he can hit his wife,” Clark said in her opening statements at the Brooklyn Supreme Court bench trial. “He culturally believed he had the right to hit his wife and discipline his wife.”

Honor kill even. What kind of woman willingly defends such an animal? Furthermore, why do we allow such animals to immigrate to the U.S.?

Prosecutors, however, said Hussain meant for his wife to die.

“His intentions were to kill his wife,” Assistant District Attorney Sabeeha Madni said in court. “This was not a man who was trying to discipline his wife.”

Madni said that Hussain “brutally attacked his wife as she lay in her bed” — leaving deep lacerations on her head, arms and shoulders, and causing her brain to hemorrhage.

He beat her with a stick that the family had found in the street and used to stir their laundry in a washtub, the court papers state.

He then tried to clean up the blood that had splattered onto their bedroom wall before calling his son for help, Madni said.

“I killed her. Hurry up and come over,” Hussain told his son, according to prosecutors.

Madni also said Pakistani women who lived in the same building as the Hussains would testify about the beatings Nazar received at the hands of her husband.

“They have told us about years of abuse they witnessed,” Madni said.

Hussain met his wife in Pakistan and the couple married before moving to Brooklyn, prosecutors said.

The trial continues Thursday before Judge Matthew D’Emic.

In her opening statement at the Brooklyn Supreme Court bench trial, Ms. Clark advocated on behalf of cultural diversity when she explained that her client “comes from a culture where he thinks this is appropriate conduct, where he can hit his wife.” 

While fleshing out her argument, counselor Clark forgot to mention that in Pakistan, abuse of women is “endemic in all social spheres.”  It is customary to genitally mutilate females, deform their faces with acid, rape them, kill them in the name of honor, and, for a lack of an adequate dowry, burn young brides alive in a “stove death.”

Yet Julie Clark does make an excellent point.  If America prides itself on embracing multiculturalism and our president feels it’s his duty to dispel negative stereotypes associated with Islam, how can America switch gears and justify prosecuting a Muslim man for exercising the diverse strength and beauty extolled by Maya Angelou and those like her?

  1. 75 and 66, how did they support themselves?

  2. “He comes from a culture where he thinks this is appropriate conduct, where he can hit his wife,” Clark said in her opening statements at the Brooklyn Supreme Court bench trial. “He culturally believed he had the right to hit his wife and discipline his wife.” ….. So that’s OK then. figging animals.

  3. hang him!

  4. It’s happening all across the US…just as it happened in England, France, Holland, Sweden, Norway, Spain, Italy, Germany…etc. We are being sucked into the vortex of islam & there is no outcry from our Gov’t. God save us from ourselves!

    • The governments of all those countries are complicit; well nearly all–they have had a regime change for the better in Norway, and le Pen is starting to shake things up in France, but ‘obama-land’, U.K., Holland, Sweden, Denmark, Spain Italy and Germany are a mess.

  5. The proof that Islam is the religion of peace is in the beating to death of a wife trying to cook a good meal for her husband.

    Everywhere Islam thrives, women are senselessly and brutally murdered and Islamic factions kill each other. Let’s look at Indonesia where Islam holds absolute supremacy: their peace is murderous. Look at Pakistan, Afghanistan, or anywhere in the Middle East and it’s impossible to see any peace.

    To me, it looks like they operate as street gangs. One has to show itself more powerful than the other faction. An eye for an eye. Etc. Except, not a single street gang in America claims it is a religion of Peace. There is no peace in thuggery.

    The proof is in the bloody lentils!

    • True Tre. Visiting hours on State Road in Philly where the prison system is look like the pilgrimage to Mecca. It is a shame, but it is US Muslims themselves in the seventies for whatever reasons who said “There is one law, and that is the law we follow, and we don’t observe ‘your’ law.” The offshoots are still in the criminal element.

      This kind of nonsense has to be called out finally without any dishonest spin or overselling of the true history of American Islam in the US. It is strongly tied to criminal gangs in urban areas. Still is.

      With the influx of certain Muslims who are coming from regions of high conflict and low human rights, it has the potential to have a powder keg effect on crime in the US.

  7. And here it is, the use of the sharia in an American courtroom by a defense team. But we are told it is an overreaction to ban sharia in US courts.

  8. How long will it be before a drug dealer says he comes from Kandahar where it is culturally acceptable to deal heroin? The sharia allows it so long as it is not sold to Muslims.
