Father now charged with 1st-degree murder of his daughter
The father of a Mississauga, Ont., Muslim teen who was killed last year has now been charged with first-degree murder.
Charges against Muhammed Parvez were upgraded from second-degree murder to first-degree murder when he appeared in court Tuesday.
The 57-year-old was arrested last December after he called police and said he had killed his 16-year-old daughter, Aqsa.
The teen’s friends said the girl and her father had been arguing about wearing a hijab, a traditional Muslim scarf that covers the head and shoulders.
The girl’s 26-year-old brother also faces charges for obstructing the police.
I am glad that this is being brought to justice! This is one time I am proud of Canada not beign worried about how the muslims’ ‘feel’…
