A pliant western media that likes to differentiate between moderate islam and radical Islam just got a major hole blown in its theory. A ‘moderate’ 75 year-old muslim man is using the defense that it is customary in Pakistan to beat your wife, implying that such beatings should be allowed in the U.S. if they’re performed by Muslims. Since he did not intend to murder his wife, his actions constitute the lesser crime of manslaughter. This is the crux of the defense.
In a bit of sick irony, the 66 year-old wife of Nazar Hussein faced her husband’s wrath because she did not prepare goat for dinner. Instead, she made lentils. This sent Hussein into a fit of rage, beating his wife to a bloody pulp after she challenged him.
A defense attorney in New York City used a novel defense to explain why her client allegedly murdered his 66-year-old wife. Noor Hussein, a 75-year-old Pakistani immigrant, was apparently so enraged when his wife, Nazar Hussein, prepared lentils for supper instead of his favorite meal of goat meat that he beat her to death in their Brooklyn apartment. Counsel Julie Clark readily admitted in court on May 21 that the septuagenarian Muslim beat his hapless wife to death, but explained it away by claiming that this is customary in his home country. “He comes from a culture where he thinks this is appropriate conduct, where he can hit his wife,” Clark said a statement to the Brooklyn Supreme Court. “He culturally believed he had the right to hit his wife and discipline his wife.”
In America, that’s murder, no matter what your religious beliefs. In this case, however, Hussein’s defense is based on sharia law being given legitimacy in the U.S.
Paging New Jersey Governor Chris Christie…
In 2011, when confronted with concerns about Sharia law after his appointment of Sohail Mohammed to a Superior Court judgeship in Passaic County, NJ, Christie responded by mockingly referring to people with such concerns as ‘crazies’ he’s ‘tired of dealing with’.
Passaic County is about 30 miles from Brooklyn.
