Yet Another Honor Killing by a Muslim Alien in America

By Debbie Schlussel

The murder that led to this suicide was clearly a Muslim honor killing.  The late Mohammed Abdul-Fazal Chowdhury’s wife showed him a picture of her boyfriend, and he brutally murdered her.  Yup, yet another of a gazillion examples of what happens when aliens with Third World Islamic values get a free ticket to America via arranged marriage.  Sadly, an entire Michigan city, Hamtramck (or as I call it, “Hamtramckstan”), is already dominated by Bengladeshis and Bengals like Mr. Chowdhury.

A Sterling Heights man suspected of fatally stabbing his wife committed suicide Jan. 8 in his Macomb County Jail cell, where he was awaiting trial on murder charges.


Capt. Anthony Wickersham of the Macomb County Sheriff’s Department said jail personnel discovered Mohammed Abdul-Fazal Chowdhury, 22, dead of a neck wound around 4 p.m.

“The guards went in to unlock his cell to allow his roommate back in, and they found him on his bunk with basically a self-inflicted wound,” said. “He slit his throat with a razorblade.” . . .

Chowdhury was accused of stabbing his wife, 25-year-old Suraia Miah, more than 60 times in the face, torso, head and neck, nearly beheading her, on Sept. 28, 2009.

Yup, sounds like a “religion of peace” to me. How ’bout you?

Police responding to a 911 call around 1 a.m. discovered Miah face down in a pool of blood on the kitchen floor of the couple’s apartment near 14 Mile and Dequindre in Sterling Heights.

Officers alleged Chowdhury provided multiple conflicting accounts of the incident, including claims that three intruders murdered Miah or that she killed herself.

Chowdhury’s attorney, Azhar Sheikh, noted that his client, who immigrated to the United States from Bangladesh last spring, had limited English proficiency, which he said might have caused confusion.

An interpreter translated proceedings at 41-A District Court into Bengali for Chowdhury, who was bound over for trial in Macomb County Circuit Court on one count of second-degree murder following a grisly preliminary exam in November.

At the exam, Detective Mary Whiting said Chowdhury chronicled an arranged marriage rife with discord during an interview at the Sterling Heights Police Department.

According to Whiting, Chowdhury said Miah showed him a photograph of her boyfriend, talked of divorce, verbally abused him and implied that their 2-year-old son was not his biological child.

The toddler, who was sleeping in the apartment at the time of the murder, was turned over to Miah’s family after Chowdhury’s arrest.

Police Chief Michael Reese said last fall that Sterling Heights officers had had contact with the couple previously: They responded to a domestic incident at the same apartment in June, though it was strictly a verbal altercation.

Chowdhury’s trial date had been set for March.

Yes, America does not have enough problems or domestic Muslims practicing extremism. We need to import more, like Mr. Chowdhury, right?

its part of a culture, but i think if a wife showed her husband a picture and said “this is the guy i have been schtuping,”

i would assume there would be alot of injured or dead woman …of all types except liberal jewish husbands who would
try to debate the issue

Oh well. All I can think to say is one down 30 billion to go.

“The late Mohammed Abdul-Fazal Chowdhury’s wife showed him a picture of her boyfriend”

“Chowdhury said Miah showed him a photograph of her boyfriend, talked of divorce, verbally abused him and implied that their 2-year-old son was not his biological child.”

eh, sorry, but you’re way out there on this one. She deserved to get shot.

Rudy dexter on January 13, 2010 at 1:50 pm

    In the first place, you are assuming that Chowdhury was telling the truth regarding the incident. Secondly, unless you are a low grade thug, you do not commit murder over such a thing, but get a divorce. Finally, did you fail to read that there had been trouble before and that this was an arranged marriage?

    Chowdhury, by his suicide, demonstrated his final cowardice. He was unwilling to face the music for what he had done.

        JOHN on July 14, 2010 at 6:46 pm

Did the man claim this was an honor killing or are you making that assumption based on the fact he was a muslim?

I’m sure there are plenty of non-muslims who might do the same thing if the same scenario was presented to them. Not that it makes the death any better, but unless there is more to the story that I hadn’t read, it seems you are just stretching this one to suit your own purpose.

    “Chowdhury was accused of stabbing his wife, 25-year-old Suraia Miah, more than 60 times in the face, torso, head and neck, nearly beheading her, on Sept. 28, 2009.”

    Yes, plenty of people do this. It happens everyday. Why do you have to libel other people to defend Islam? This was not a simple beat up or a fast killing, but a frenzied act of butchery. This was more than ordinary spousal rage.

    Worry01 on January 13, 2010 at 3:08 pm

Every two minutes someone in the U.S. is sexually assaulted. In addition, intentional homicide rates per year are higher in the U.S. than Bangadesh. In fact, there are 21 countries ranking higher than Bangledesh between the two.

The issue is education, not religion.

THK (Toronto, Canada) on January 13, 2010 at 2:29 pm

    Also, you fail to mention that Bangladesh is a third world country in which record keeping is poor, incidents are not reported, or are reported as something else. You are quite silly if you are trying to portray Bangladesh as some sort of paradise.

    As for education, do people from Bangladesh really need to be taught that stabbing someone sixty times is not an okay thing to do at home or abroad? If so, where do they get that idea possibly? mmmmmmm

    Worry01 on January 13, 2010 at 3:13 pm

    Where do your exagerated statistics come from? First off you are not from the US, and second the point of this article is NOT that no other cultures in the US have misplaced value systems that justify this sort of murder, but that this is a way of life in ISLAM!!! Check the news, there were nearly 1 dozen of these brutral Muslim beheading type honor killings in the US over the past year or so. Google bridges TV, that honor killing invloved a millionaire owner of a Muslim TV station in buffalo NY, I think the poorest perpetrator in the acts I am refering to were middle class homeowners, lack of education is hardly a factor in the events happening here!

    Moses on January 13, 2010 at 4:20 pm


      The amount of women murdered in the U.S.A. at the hands of boyfriends, partners, and husbands is staggering. Please refer to the works of ‘Jackson Katz’ as a start. Of course, information is abounding on the internet. Be sure to verify the credibility of your source’s and I’m sure you’ll do fine.

      Honor killing, albeit abhorrent, affords them the misguided religious excuse to murder women in accordance with their religious laws. Of course, this mindset must be changed and such practices are not tolerated in Western nations.

      “MURDER. Every day four women die in this country as a result of domestic violence, the euphemism for murders and assaults by husbands and boyfriends. That’s approximately 1,400 women a year, according to the FBI. The number of women who have been murdered by their intimate partners is greater than the number of soldiers killed in the Vietnam War.”

      I ask you Moses, were these “honor” killings? People such as your self are the greatest single hindrance to resolving anything.

      Morley Safer, Peter Jennings(D), Keith Morris,Helen Shafer, Neil Young, Pamela Anderson, Avril Lavigne, Shania Twain, Celine Dion, Brendan Fraser, Jim Carrey, William Shatner, Kiefer Sutherland, Keanu Reeves, Leonard Cohen, Nelly Furtado,Howie Mandel, Corey Heart, James Cameron….

      THK (Toronto, Canada) on January 14, 2010 at 10:29 am

        Yes, people get murdered. Also, more people die from traffic accidents. Does that mean that religiously motivated attacks by individuals should be ignored? Your petition is meaningless feel good nonsense if it is just going after generic killings that are not motivated by anything deeper than rage. The article was not on murder in general, but about honor killings. You are just trying to muddy the waters.

        Worry01 on January 14, 2010 at 12:59 pm

      Note that he furnishes no link to his purported information. Also, he likes to hide behind general murders to avoid the topic of honor killings. Debbie’s article was not about murder, but honor killings, so most of his comments are quite irrelevant. As for that goofy petitition, who knows if it exists, and who really cares.

      Worry01 on January 14, 2010 at 1:03 pm

This racist woman obviously just likes spreading hate trying to attack one religion. Shame on her. People like you make me sick.

jim on January 13, 2010 at 2:48 pm

    jim – you know what makes me sick? Morons like you who don’t have the slightest clue as to the nature of the threat that we face today. What, do you think the Girl Scouts have been trying to attack us lately?

    One other thing. islam is not a religion, it is a cult that praises death to the infidel. And they have thousands of clowns who are willing to kill all of us non-believers. Are you a believer in the Religion of Pieces?

    Jarhead on January 13, 2010 at 3:02 pm

      Honor killings in Islam are well documented and even conceded to be a problem by many Moslems who are not completely out there. This defensive belligerence really demonstrates a raw nerve. By the way, what race is Islam again?

      Worry01 on January 13, 2010 at 3:17 pm

    islam is not a religion it is a death cult.

    zippy on January 13, 2010 at 6:43 pm

So let me get this straight. He kills his wife over his offended “honor”, then he dishonorably lies about it, claiming “intruders” killed her. Don’t know if his suicide should be deemed the “honorable” thing, but at least he saved us the trouble of prosecuting and jailing this low-life.

Raymond in DC on January 13, 2010 at 3:14 pm

This kind of killing could have been done by a member of any religion or ethnic group, unfortunately. They used to be known as “crimes of passion” and the men who perpetrated them frequently got off lightly—it was considered a mitigating circumstance. (Jealous women have also been known to kill male lovers or spouses, although nowhere near as frequently.)

None of the above contradicts the fact that there is a huge problem in Islam with regard to honor killings. Unlike in the Western world, women are killed by male family members like fathers and brothers for dating/marrying/wearing Western clothes etc. without male permission. Moreover, in Muslim countries the punishment is often slight or there is no punishment at all. Yes, Islam has a problem with killing women that the rest of the world doesn’t have—this case just doesn’t happen to be a good example of it.

Rachel on January 13, 2010 at 4:28 pm

Ok FIRST of all tht IS NOT the story he didnt stab he 60 times, plus no one can make up crap n say n e thng bout it cuz NO one was thre while it all happened.

yazzy on January 13, 2010 at 4:34 pm

one more thng IN ISLAM THERE isnt such a thng as “HONOR KILLING” ppl do get DIVORCED it exist EVERYWHERE not jus here IN AMERICA

yazzy on January 13, 2010 at 4:35 pm

    Honor killings associated with Islam are quite well documented and even conceded by many Muslims. Do you need references? As for divorces in Islam, it is indeed easy for a male to obtain one, but not the female. You really need to learn more and also work on your sad lack of literacy.

    Worry01 on January 13, 2010 at 7:56 pm

You wont hear anything about this on fixed news. theyre twenty five percent owned by saudies. those pitiful punks.

Bengali – another pissant third world country whose people should be barred from entering the U.S.

Jarhead on January 13, 2010 at 4:50 pm

I guess it could have been worse. At least the boyfriend didn’t go on the warpath, or maybe he didn’t have a chance before the suicide.

Little Al on January 13, 2010 at 5:13 pm

Where are the feminists to be found? Nowhere. In fact, Code Pink has allied itself with Hamas. So women suffer brutal oppression abroad and right here at home.

Let’s hear it for equality!

NormanF on January 13, 2010 at 5:16 pm

If you report rape in Bangladesh do they stone you for adultery?

Was this what the Muslims would consider an arranged divorce?

Pinandpuller on January 13, 2010 at 9:56 pm

Perhaps OJ Simson is a closet Muslim as he managed to kill his ex-wife and a Jew.

Pinandpuller on January 13, 2010 at 10:00 pm

i knew this guy and the girl when they where in bangladesh she married him becuase her parents wanted her to marry his older brother and his older brother lets just say is an asshole her husband is a nice guy and really liked her he kept telling himself and everyone around him that she changed but when he came here he realized she did not change about the divorce he told her he will divorce her if that is what he wants he also asked her that he would like to see his son after the divorce but she told him forget the son he is not even yours i would be upset if this happened to me

listen here on January 13, 2010 at 10:01 pm

    There is a difference between being upset and reacting like a civilized being. . .and being upset and reacting like a typical Muslim third-world barbarian (that includes all those of the “religion of peace”), like this barbarian did.

    No Muslims are able to integrate into civilized Western societies. So the more we import into our country, the more violence and constant jihad will be the result.

    JM on January 14, 2010 at 12:31 am

I bet you and Pamela Geller finger yourselves with ecstasy whenever a Muslim kills someone.

I also bet you delete this comment you fascist twat.

    You must be another HuffPo or Kos contributor judging by your linguistic skills. How’s life in your mommy’s basement these days, anyway?

    Mistress_Dee on January 14, 2010 at 12:02 pm

What a surprise…I have not heard about this story. Any story I hear about a Muslim…it is never good (even with the MSM too). Any Muslim that speaks out against terrorism gets a death threat. Any woman who commits adultery or gets too westernized deserves to die? Of course it is wrong for a spouse to cheat, but that woman should not have been murdered for it. God (NOT Allah) is the only one who can judge her. What good is this Muslim religion? It is just disgusting to me. These people are seriously brainwashed.

Angela04 on January 14, 2010 at 9:11 am

    The only reason nothing is said good about muslims is b/c people like you guys make stuff up.
    As Muslims they speak up because they are, not and evry muslim is not a terrorist! What if someone got up and started making up stories about Christians are terrorist? Or any religion that you are? How would you feel?
    And the woman that had been killed did not deserve to die of course but why did blame that on Muslims? Yes She should not have been murdered must so shouldnt have TARA LINN GRANT RITE?
    I can give you many stories about American husbands killing their wives. what did that have to do with their religion? NOTHING!
    Btw God Is God! In this religion they call God Allah!
    go ask another culture what they call god in their language there are many!
    Islam Is the religion and a person that follows Islam is called A Muslim.
    It is a religion like any other. People have just took fake And Disgusting facts and planted them into the Islamic Religion OKAY?
    And These people are not brainwashed They are following their religion, btw their religion does not include murdering people so get that straight ALL OF YOU!

KevinQC on January 14, 2010 at 12:59 pm

I always laugh at the terms like ‘muslim honour killing’ that many racist non muslims such as yourself coin up with. If you could even bother with reading the Qur’an or doing proper research on Islam, then you will know that Islam doesn’t find killing a person honourable at all, it’s infact a sin you ignorant loser. It is so sad that you are using a person’s death to illustrate your ignorance and racism. You do know that South Asians aren’t the only murderers in America right? THERE ARE KILLERS OF DIFFERENT RACES AND FAITHS INCLUDING THE WHITE RACE YOU ARE SO PROUD OF you racist scum. AND THIRD WORLD ISLAMIC VIEWS LOOL – ISLAM IS EVERYWHERE – DEAL WITH IT – IT’S GROWING IN AMERICA – AND IF ITS SO POISONOUS THEN WHY IS IT THE FASTEST GROWING RELIGION IN THE WORLD THEN?


PROUD MUSLIMAH on January 15, 2010 at 1:24 pm

Islam is not a death cult ok . It’s a religion just like chrishtianty or any other.
You all base this after September 11th rite?
The same day suraia was killed an American lady was also killed by her husband in Ohio. Aren’t you ashamed to call yourself a racist? And what is going on? You all slaves african Americans first and now you trying to ruin our lives as Muslims? Leave us alone! We are normal people with normal lives and we pray to our god as you do! Soo what’s the problem?
And one of you up there said ban all Bengalis from U.S? What about all you
american that kill your wives? What about the guy that cut his wife to pieces?
Y can’t you respect a persons religion? For what they are and not base anything about us by knowing fake facts? And you say Muslims honor killing?no honey. We take murder as a sin and this guy that murdered his wife even if he is a Muslim or not hopefully god will take him to he’ll for the wrong he has done! We will all see what happens on the day we all die ok. Keep that in mind honey 😉

Atruesoul on January 15, 2010 at 7:43 pm

You All Got it wrong, Suraia Did not show a picture of her boyfriend, b/c she had none!
A relationship has problems,
the ones that are married should know, but that shouldnt mean that he kill his wife.
It also has nothing to do with being a muslim!



2123 on January 16, 2010 at 12:58 am

This whole incident had nothing to do with religion. Why is that when a Muslim is presented in front of others for doing something wrong you blame it on Islam? I am a Muslim girl, yes, a 17 year old Muslim girl to be exact. And you put the blame on religion? Because that is how it sounds. In the U.S. so many people are killed for the exact same reasons, maybe even worse. As a Muslim, I know how things work and everything is a self made decision by that person. This was in no way a Muslim Honor Killing. It does not tell you in Islam to kill your wife. You can’t just throw it on Islam and say that this is what happened. You must look at the person, where they are coming from, and what made this person do what they did. No one knows the truth except the person that was in the situation. Anyone can say anything but you must look at the truth. You never know what was going through his head or what he was thinking to be exact. Plus, how can some of you say that Allah is not God? HE IS GOD! Us Muslims call (GOD) Allah. And we are not brainwashed. Muslims do not do these things, these are decisions that are made on their own. Others do it alone, not everyone is alike. It does not tell us to murder or so on. So do not ever think that in Islam it tells Muslims to murder their wives or rape them or kill anyone just because they want to. There has always been confusion about our religion and sometimes it is put out in a wrong way. It disgusts me to know that us Muslims are always judged when all of us are not the same. It is like picking up a flower from a field and saying it does not smell good, than looking at the others and saying the others just might be the same when you did not even sniff the scent yet. Many people die, there is so many murder cases out there, people kill other people. Everyone is alike one way or the other. Maybe even different but do not put blame on us Muslims. This article is just ridiculous. Every time there is a murder that has to do with Muslim people, it is a big deal and is leaked. But when there are other cases, they do not matter much. There is always a conflict going on and there will always be a conflict no matter what. How can you ever let peace enter when your fighting with yourself? The war that we through will never end because the hate will never find its way to leave and love will never find its trace to enter. Funny thing is, no matter what anyone says and no matter how much a person will judge Islam, us people will always keep our respect. And if you can never respect another religion, you will never know how to respect your self or the person that you are or the person you will become. Thank you.

“Yup, yet another of a gazillion examples of what happens when aliens with Third World Islamic values get a free ticket to America via arranged marriage.” That is the most ignorant sentence I’ve ever heard – anyone would feel hatred towards the person who cheated on them. What the guy did has absolutely nothing to do with getting a free ticket to America, I’m pretty sure lots of people who’s been cheated on would like to kill that person. People so ignorant and stupid should be deported or something.

Sid on May 1, 2010 at 7:04 pm

forgot to add: It has nothing to do with his religion either.

Sid on May 1, 2010 at 7:05 pm

If MR Chowdhury was not the biological father of the 2 year old boy, I would have acquitted him.

It is one thing for a spouse to say after 2 years of marriage that they are leaving and the marriage is over. It is quite another to say the kid is not your but only theirs. Acquittal,or jury nullification is the only just result in that case.

FieryEyedMonkey on July 8, 2011 at 11:24 pm

This man is a hero. A husband is morally obligated to kill an adulterous wife. Of course most American don’t understand it as they are immoral and the descendents o f northern European barbarians. This man should have been awarded a medal for his righteousness.

. Islam is terrorism. Terrorism is the very essence of Islam. Terror is central to its ideology. the Quran and other Islamic scriptures (Hadith, Sirat, Tabari) aren’t vague, but quite clear:
“When the sacred months are over, kill the unbelievers wherever you find them” – Quran 9:5
“O believers make war on the infidels (non-Muslims) who dwell around you, let them find harshness in you” – Quran 9:123
“Fight against Christians and Jews that do not believe in Allah or in the last day…and do not embrace the true faith” – Q 9:29
“Fighting is obligatory for you (Muslims), even if you dislike it” – Q 2:216
“When you meet the unbelievers, strike their necks and inflict slaughter upon them” – Quran 47:4
“Do you think you would enter Paradise before Allah knows the men who fought hard and steadfast?” – Q 3:142
“Believers take neither Jews nor Christians for friends or helpers” – Quran 5:51
“Let not the believers take for friends or helpers unbelievers rather than believers.” – Q 3:28, 4:144.
“O prophet (Mohammed) make war on unbelievers and hypocrites and deal harshly with them” – 9:60
“Fight in the name of Allah and in the way of Allah. Fight against those who disbelieve in Allah. Make a holy war…” – Sahih Muslim 19:4294
“Any Muslim who kills an infidel is guaranteed paradise” – Sunna Abu Dawud 2:2489
“Fight against people until they say there is no God but Allah” – Sunna Abu Dawud 2:3188
“Our Prophet (Mohammed), ordered us to fight you (non-Muslims) till you worship Allah alone or pay us Jizyah (extortion) in submission…Whoever amongst us is killed as a martyr shall go to Paradise…and whoever survives shall become your master” – Sahih Bukhari 4:53:386
“Killing unbelievers is a small matter to us (Muslims).” Tabari IX:69
“Fighting with Jews and Christians carries more reward than fighting others.” Sunna
