KINGSTON, Ont. - A Montreal family couldn't bear the "treachery" of their three teenaged daughters having boyfriends, so they drowned them and the father's first wife, pushing a car into a canal and staging the scene to look like an implausible accident, court heard Thursday.
Days after the bodies were found the father was recorded saying, "There is nothing more valuable than our honour."
Tooba Mohammad Yahya, 41, her husband Mohammad Shafia, 58, and their son, Hamed Mohammad Shafia, 20, are each charged with four counts of first-degree murder. Three teenage Shafia sisters, Zainab, 19, Sahar, 17, and Geeti, 13, along with Shafia's first wife, Rona Amir Mohammad, 50, were found dead inside a submerged black Nissan Sentra.
. . .
"There can be no treachery, no violation more than this," Lacelle quoted Shafia as saying on the wiretaps. "They [the daughters] committed treason from beginning to end. They betrayed humankind. They betrayed Islam. . . They betrayed everything."
Oh, wait. He said "they betrayed Islam," not "Budda." Nothing to see here. Move along. Islam is a Religion of Peace. All cultures are equal. Christians and Jewish people are intolerant. Israel sucks and is the real cause of instability in the middle east. Coda.
