Parents suffocated girl, 17, with plastic bag for ‘wearing short-sleeved top’

A teenage girl was murdered by her parents in front of her siblings for wearing a top that showed off her arms. Shafilea Ahmed, 17, suffered years of abuse from her mum and dad before they decided to end her life for bringing ‘dishonour’ to the family.

The couple pinned their daughter down on the sofa and stuffed a carrier bag into her mouth until she turned blue and suffocated in September 2003. Her father, Iftikhar Ahmed, then put her body in the back of his car and dumped it 70 miles away from their home in Warrington. The next day police were alerted when Shafilea wasn’t seen at school – but her parents stated she had run away.

Now one of the teenager’s close family friends, Shanin Munir, has helped reveal the extent of the abuse she went through before her death. In a new documentary called ‘When Missing Turns into Murder’, she said Shafilea’s mum and dad would often call her a ‘whore and a prostitute’ and beat her if they believed she was misbehaving. Girl, 12, raped by man dressed head to toe in black The teenager dreamed of being a lawyer and had ‘texted boys’, although not on her own phone because ‘her parents would check’, Shanin said.

She told The Sun: ‘I’d heard there were physical beatings and a lot of emotional abuse. Her sister told me her parents would lock Shafilea in the garden. ‘She wanted to escape her home, for her it was hell.’ Shafilea was the oldest child of Farzana and Iftikhar Ahmed, who met through an arranged marriage. As she got older, she adopted a more Western way of living, taking an interest in fashion and wearing make-up and false nails.

Her parents tried to curb her ‘rebellious’ nature and one year arranged a holiday to Pakistan, where they intended to marry her off to a cousin. Shafilea refused to go and so her father drugged her with sleeping pills as a result. After awaking in Pakistan, the teenager was so terrified about what would happen she drank bleach in a suicide attempt, severely burning her throat and oesophagus.

The abuse grew more intense and Shafilea’s parents planned an ‘honour killing’ as a way to end the ‘shame’ she had brought on the family. During a furious row over her short-sleeved top, they killed her in the living room and made her siblings watch. Shafilea’s body was found five months after her death in the River Kent near Sedgwick, Cumbria. The family put on a funeral and pretended to grieve, but her sister Alesha later went to the police and bravely told them what had happened.

Sinfulness and fornication! Obviously these honor killings ensure women's rights.

Isn't multi cultural sim so wonderful?

News flash, maybe just maybe a big reason why the countries these people come from are such sh$t holes is because of common practices and beliefs. Anyone ever thought about that?
Worse, they bring those beliefs and practices to their new homes and to many people don't demand they assimilate, adapt and stop that crap. By the way, this importing of unacceptable beliefs and practices isn't limited to just one region or necessarily religion. But, certain regions and belief systems do seem to have more problems and issues.
