Netherlands: 13-year-old Muslim tries to honor-kill his mother because “women are not allowed to divorce”


This thirteen-year-old Muslim boy thought his mother had sullied the family honor. Where did he learn this? No doubt at the local mosque and at home. But there is almost certain to be no investigation of the mosque, much less of the deeply-rooted assumptions about family “honor” that are rooted in Islam and pandemic in Muslim communities.

“The Netherlands: 13y/o Afghan boy tried to kill his mother ‘because women are not allowed to divorce,’” Voice of Europe, January 12, 2018 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

A thirteen-year-old boy from Arnhem, the Netherlands, stabbed his mother in September last year, because she recently divorced his father. The attempted murder trial started today and will be resumed in March.

According to his mother the reason for the divorce was physical abuse. The woman therefore lived with her youngest child at a secret address.

In Afghan culture, the mother “dishonoured the family” with the divorce and she was at risk of being killed. The father reacted to the divorce by leaving the Netherlands with their two children without the mother’s consent. He taught his son that a mother should never divorce her husband according to Afghan tradition.

The second time the father went abroad, the mother contacted the police and the authorities arrested the father. Because of his arrest, the mother was reunited with her children, not realising that her son was waiting for her to stab her multiple times with a knife. The woman was brought to hospital with life-threatening injuries but she survived the attack….
