Speaking in general terms, Fatah said “a victim of an honour killing is always left in an unmarked grave. Imagine caring more about your faith than your child? When this happens, it shows they don’t give a damn about her and the fact a family has chosen to not put the name on a grave proves the point that they are embarrassed and gives an insight into honour killings.”
Soharwardy knows of “100 graves of women” killed because their families felt their actions brought disrespect upon them and their extreme version of Islam. And anybody “telling you” it is Islamic tradition to bury a person in an unnamed grave, says Soharwardy, is out-and-out “wrong.”
In fact, he says, “marking a grave is one of the highest recommendations of tradition by the Prophet Mohammed.”
Fatah adds: “Taj Mahal is the quintessential symbol of a tribute for a Muslim woman,” he said of the famous Indian shrine built for Mumtaz Mahal, who died in 1631, by her grieving Mughal emperor husband Shah Jahan. “In Islam, for a woman, you build the grandest structure in the world. I know of some in several countries which have stood for 1,000 years.”
Aqsa Parvez’s grave is the polar opposite. It’s as chilling standing there as was her death. Disturbing. For $580, the cemetery can put a flat marker there — with her name, date of birth and death, and at least people can find her if they want to come to pay their respects. A cemetery employee said there is no problem if others want to place a flat memorial there but it would be removed if the family were to demand that.
As we wait for the court to decide the murder case, Aqsa lays, not so honourably, in grave 774.
Yes, that is Ezra Levant tormenter Syed Sowarhardy. He is increasingly eager to rehabilitate himself.
