Shafia Murder Trial and Justice Served – No Honour Killing in Islam

Thank God I live in Canada¬†where justice was served today for cold-blooded shameless murders of four women i.e. Shafia trial. Long story short, this was one of those “honour killings” which are a result of ignorance & remnants of patriarchal cultures. Once the verdict was given I tuned the hashtag #shafia on twitter to see the reaction of the public. Of course everyone was happy but there was ignorant souls among them including hate mongers who were spreading hate about Islam that this is an Islamic teaching blah blah.

Those who have followed the Shafia trial know well that this is not the case and there is no such teaching in Islam. Muhammad Shafia tried to “justify” it by saying “nothing is more dear to me than my honour”. No matter how hard he tried to justify it, there is absolutely no justification in the beautiful religion of Islam.

As an Ahmadi Muslim who believes in the Messiah, Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian, I condemn any and all honour killings. There is absolutely no justification for such acts of violence. In fact Holy Quran clearly says that anyone who killed an innocent it is like killing the whole humanity.

Long Live Humanity! Long Live Canada!

  1. I am confused. I had just finished reading this translation:
    Sura 4:34,

    — copy / paste of pseudo scholars

    Can you explain why the prophet says one thing- and you say another?

  2. Thank you for stopping by and sharing your concern. @Semiotic the irony is that you are using translation of people who have gone astray from the real teaching of Quran and Prophet. I encourage you put up that question to them and not us Ahmadi Muslims who condemn such brutal acts and do not consider such views to have any source in Islam.

    And if you want to read what the actual teaching of Holy Quran is, and what Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be on him) said and how he practically showed us by acting on it, you’ll have to go to the source instead of relying on second hand sources. The verse in question is discussed in this FoxNews article as well that explains Ahmadiyya Muslim view:

    Islam and the Quran Require Us to Honor, Not Abuse, Women
