CAIR welcomes Arrest in Shooting of Ohio Muslim. Typical CAIR response. Always reaching for a hate crime even where none exists.
Was CAIR at the scene? Do they have any facts other than what their ‘client’ told them? The police do, as they there was video of the incident, and have stated there is no evidence of a hate crime.
It has been suggested before that CAIR involvement tends to fabricate exaggerate circumstances. Such as in the Minnesota madrassa case where, almost on cue, after an eye witness verified that a charter school was indeed teaching Islam and mandating participation in Islamic prayers and after school sessions – suddenly that school received death threats. Yet with all the technology and phone records available today – no one has been arrested for making any threats. Why not? Did such threats occur?
Not surprisingly, CAIR has not issued a statement on the case of a Muslim girl in Georgia who was killed by her own father in what is known as an Islamic honor killing.
CAIR’s response? Silence. Nothing to say. So much for being a Muslim civil rights group. Apparently young, teenage Muslim girls, dead or alive, aren’t worthy of CAIR’s efforts.
The mainstream media has also displayed their bias on each of these cases. In the case of the Muslim who was shot – they quickly identify his religion and nationality, and even suggest with no apparent evidence that he was shot because he was a Muslim and reciting a Muslim prayer.
In the Muslim honor killing, if any MSM outlet even covered the story, they go out of their way not to mention the killers religion or that honor killings are in any way related to the Islamic culture / ideology.
Sandeela Kanwal – honor killed by Muslim in US
On July 6, 2008, a Pakistani man told police he had done nothing wrong after strangling and killing his 25-year-old daughter at their Jonesboro, Ga., home. Police say Chaudhry Rashid killed Sandeela Kanwal because she wanted out of an arranged marriage. He was later charged, convicted and sentenced to life in prison.
When Rashid moved to the United States from Pakistan after his wife died, he left his four children with his brother. Once he married a U.S. citizen, Rashid had his children join him. In 2002, his daughter Sandeela Kanwal agreed to an arranged marriage with her cousin, the son of the uncle who had raised her in Pakistan, so that he could also move to the U.S.
Because of delays in the immigration process, her husband didn’t arrive in Atlanta until 2008 and then left almost immediately for Chicago. The 25-year-old felt she had fulfilled her duty to her family and contacted a divorce lawyer in July 2008. A friend testified that Kanwal feared her family before and after she secretly filed for divorce.
Police who responded to a call at the family’s home found Rashid distraught, sitting in the driveway smoking a cigarette. Kanwal was dead on her bedroom floor in her Walmart uniform, dark marks visible on her neck. Remnants of a burned cord were found in the garage.
Following an interview at the police department, Rashid asked to speak with his family. He spoke in Punjabi and Urdu and talked about his daughter’s death. During the conversation he said: “I put the rope around her neck and squeezed her.”
“She disgraced our family.”
