Technically he’s right, he is innocent, according to sharia law. I am sure the most senior judge in England would agree with Rashid. He gave his blessing to the use of sharia law to resolve disputes among Muslims (article here). And they would let this savage walk free in the newly democratic Iraq as they did here with Rand Abdel-Qader who was stomped to death by her father and brothers (her mother was gunned down, murdered in cold blood a short time later for attempting to leave the murderer).
Will we dhimmis be cooking special meals for this pious Muslim?

Dad in ‘Honor
Killing’ Case Says He’s Innocent
FOXNews – USA
Georgia man facing charges that he killed his daughter for disgracing his family
declared his innocence.
"I have done nothing wrong," Chaudhry Rashid
told Chief Magistrate Daphne Walker at his Tuesday hearing through interpreter
Younis Farhat, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
During Tuesday’s hearing, Rashid told the judge he wanted to observe his Muslim
beliefs while in jail, including a diet that forbids the consumption of pork,
the paper said.
Aunt Gail, aunt to the brutal "honor killing" victims Amina and Sarah Said, grieves for yet another victim of Islamic practice. She wrote me:
Nowhere To Run; No Peace To Be Had
For women who live in the shadows of Sharia Law, or some adaptation thereof, there’s truly no safe place to escape and not a moment of peace to be had! At least, for those women who dare to think for themselves. Instead, they are imprisoned emotionally and cannot see thier own worth! Thier religion, customs and traditions become thier world. To me, this mindset has come to be termed , the Arabic fog.
This fog seems to be dominant among those who seek freedom, self-awareness and perhaps, a break in religiosity and arranged marriages. No matter what these women hold onto, the above mentioned freedoms can and do bring about death for many of these young women!
So, why do they even try to break free…only to bring about death? Personally, I think it is an attitude of I’d rather be dead than living a life of persecution, sub-human treatment and someone to think for me! They have an existance which is mandated by males and glaring women who await any reason for accusations towards others! Yes, these women can be killed for simple accusations and many have met with death because of these accusations too! They have nowhere to run and not a moment of peace to be had!
I was heartbroken to read about yet, another honor killing, in our country. As I read this story, my ire went off the chart! This is why: "
The 25-year-old victim, Sandeela Kanwal, was wed in Pakistan in an arranged marriage. Police said Kanwal hadn’t seen her husband, who lives in Chicago, for months.
According to police, there was "friction between father and victim" in the weeks leading up to the killing. Rashid had not spoken to his daughter in more than two months.
Police said Rashid was so angered that his daughter planned to divorce her husband that he killed her after a heated argument at the family’s home, FOX News affiliate MyFoxAtlanta reported.
Police who arrived at the scene said they found Rashid’s two sons at the end of the driveway and their father sitting behind a car smoking a cigarette. Officers said that Rashid appeared "distraught and possibly mournful" and told police "my daughter is dead" when they arrived.
After entering the home, Kanwal’s body was discovered in the doorway of a bedroom, cold to the touch, officials said.
A police report said that there were possible "ligature marks" indicating strangulation on the victim and noted that an iron and cord had been found near her body. A necklace was also found on a table downstairs, according to the report.
Rashid was taken to the Clayton County jail where he reportedly confessed to strangling Kanwal." WHAT??? This woman fled a bad marriage and because she sought a divorce…she had to die! What’s up with this thinking? She went HOME for the sake of safety, only to have her dad serve as executioner! Truly, there was no place for her to run and no peace for her brokeness. The Arabic fog surely had her confused as to what she should have done for complete safetys sake.
As I thought about this woman’s plight, I started to reflect on the honor killings of Sarah and Amina. Had Yaser married them off, in an arranged marriage, if they had left thier husband would Yaser have elected to murder them? YES! You see, divorce is not accepted in the Arabic world and if the woman leaves her husband, she has dishonored her family name! This equals death!
One huge difference between these honor killings…Rashid, waited for the police, calmly. He did not run! Unlike Yaser Said, this man seemed to be content with his actions and with the consequences of such an action! Yaser, on the other hand, is still at large and living freely among those who support his deadly cleansing!
One can only hope and pray that the judge trying this case will persecute this man to the full extent of OUR LAW! There must be NO consideration of Rashid’s religious and cultural beliefs as MURDER is MURDER!! Let the Arab population know, through this judgement, that our Constitution itself, is enough to try and convict these acts as the EVIL that they are! Let the verdict be a statement to all who shadow women with Sharia Law…stop your male dominated acts on our soil or, be willing to die for the freedom to enact such barbaric behaviors on American soil!
Rest in PEACE…Amina, Sarah, Sandeela and all those who have been murdered for centuries, for the sake of keeping a man’s name clean…the Arabic fog road to death.
